    Call for Doctoral Consortium Submissions

EUROGRAPHICS'2021 in Vienna, Austria, May 3-7, 2021, <> ---> enjoy 
Vienna !

The Eurographics Doctoral Consortium is a networking event that provides 
PhD students, working in all areas of computer graphics, with an 
excellent opportunity to present their work and interact with 
distinguished and experienced researchers in the field, receiving 
feedback and mentoring, as well as a different perspective from senior 
researchers outside their home institution. In addition, the Doctoral 
Consortium provides a unique forum for PhD students to share their work 
and experience among their fellow PhD students. The Doctoral Consortium 
will take place within the Eurographics’2021 conference, to be held in 
Vienna, May 3-7, 2021.

        Who should apply?

PhD students working in all areas of computer graphics are encouraged to 
apply. We particularly encourage applications from students who are in 
the first half of their PhD work, especially those who already have a 
clear research direction (possibly with some published results), as they 
have sufficient time ahead to profit from their participation in the 
Doctoral Consortium. Students who are close to finishing their doctorate 
degree, or have very recently finished it, are also welcome, to share 
their experience and to discuss their ongoing research and future 
research plans.

The applicants are strongly encouraged to consider submitting a poster 
of their work to the poster track in parallel.


January 31, 2021 	Submission deadline
March 4, 2021 	Notification of acceptance
March 28, 2021 	Camera ready submission and video

* All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC

        Submission guidelines

*Submission website:* Eurographics Submission and Review Management 
(SRM) <> system.

*Template:* Format should be in accordance with Eurographics Author’s 
guidelines <>.

Eligible Doctoral Consortium students who would like to participate in 
the Doctoral Consortium should submit the following documents *as a 
single PDF file*:

1. *Research Statement:* A 3-4 pages extended abstract summarizing their 
dissertation research, singly authored by themself. *The submissions 
should NOT be anonymous.* The use of figures is encouraged. This 
document should include:

  * university doctoral program context in which the work is being
    conducted, including starting date and expected graduation date;
  * motivation that drives the dissertation research;
  * research objectives/questions;
  * background and related work that informs the author’s research;
  * research approach, methodology and proposed experiments (where
  * dissertation status and a description of the remaining work;
  * current and expected contributions.

The research statement should transcend the scope of a single 
publication or project, and instead focus on the general research theme 
or agenda for the student’s PhD thesis.

2. *Supervisor’s letter of support:* A one-page signed letter from the 
PhD student’s supervisor, supporting her/his participation in the 
Doctoral Consortium, and providing the following information:

  * the student’s status with respect to the institution’s PhD requirements;
  * the expected date of thesis/dissertation defense or graduation;
  * why attendance at this Doctoral Consortium would be particularly
    beneficial to the student;
  * what contributions the student is likely to make to the event if
    invited to attend.

3. *Curriculum vitae:* A 1-2 pages CV plus the list of all publications.

All three documents must be written in English.

        Review Process

The review process is single-blinded. The review and decision of 
acceptance will take into account: (1) Quality of the submission 
(potential contribution and impact of the research to the field of 
computer graphics) and the author’s stage of doctoral research; (2) the 
benefits of the consortium for the author’s PhD research; (3) the 
author’s contribution to the diversity of topics, backgrounds and 
profiles that will integrate the Consortium.


All authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend the Doctoral 
Consortium, where they will present their work to a panel of experts, 
selected by the Doctoral Consortium co-chairs to match at best the 
topics related to the accepted submissions.

For this, the authors will prepare a 10 minute long pre-recorded video 
to present their work. The panelists will then interact with the 
presenter to discuss their approach and provide constructive advice and 
suggestions. Social events will be conducted to engage panelists and all 
presenters to initialize a friendly environment in the community.
