Eurographics'2021 - Call for Full Papers

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

The EUROGRAPHICS’2021 Full Papers Program will showcase innovative research
in Computer Graphics and related areas. We invite submissions of new ideas,
and encourage all forms of research creativity and originality. We are
interested in practice, experience, novel applications, technological,
system or theoretical papers, with the ambition of setting the standard in
the field and stimulating future trends.

Accepted full papers will be presented at EUROGRAPHICS’2021 and published
in a special issue of the Eurographics journal *Computer Graphics Forum*
<>; the submissions will
undergo a two-step review process. We encourage submissions from all areas
related to computer graphics, including but not limited to rendering,
modeling, animation, simulation, visualization, virtual and augmented
reality, display technology, image processing, computational imaging,
computational fabrication, human-computer interaction, and related
disciplines. Gold Open Access publishing will be offered to all
Eurographics Full Papers at attractive conditions of 340 EUR per
publication, with special discount to Eurographics members for only 260 EUR.
September 28, 2020 Preliminary abstract due (required for any further
October 5, 2020 Full paper due
November 23, 2020 Reviews available
November 23 to 29, 2020 Rebuttal period
December 14, 2020 Notification to Authors
January 22, 2021 Revised version due
February 8, 2021 Final notification
February 22, 2021 Camera-ready version due
April 12, 2021 Fast-Forward video deadline
May 3-7, 2021 Conference in Vienna

* All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC
Submission dates

A preliminary abstract is due by *23:59 UTC, September 28, 2020*, and the
full paper deadline is *23:59 UTC, October 5, 2020*. Note that a full paper
can only be submitted if an abstract has been submitted by the abstract
Submission details

Electronic submission of all papers is mandatory and will be conducted
using the *Submission and Review Management (SRMv2)*
<> system. Papers must be
written in English, must be *anonymized*, and must be formatted according
to the Eurographics Computer Graphics Forum guidelines. The publication
guidelines and LaTeX templates are available on *SRMv2*
<>. Accepted
papers must be presented orally in English at Eurographics’2021. Review of
full papers is based on a double-blind reviewing approach, so please be
sure to remove all personal data (such as authors, affiliations, etc.) from
your submission. References to your own work should be made in the third
person to maintain anonymity. Reviewers are asked to keep confidential all
materials sent to them for evaluation.

There is no maximum length imposed on papers. However, papers should only
be as long as they need to be, but not longer. Reviewers might rank
submissions perceived as being either repetitive or unnecessarily long
lower than they would score concisely written papers.

Authors of accepted papers will present a super short summary or a teaser
during a fast-forward session. This presentation will be around 25 seconds
(exact length to be decided) and shall be augmented by slides. To ensure a
smooth organization, they will be asked to prepare a short video of the
slides for this purpose, in two versions: one with the spoken text and one
without. These FF presentations will be available on the web throughout the
conference. Details will be sent to accepted paper authors.

A submission to the Eurographics Full Papers program should describe an
original work of the authors. Authors must not use ideas or content
originating from others without properly crediting their original sources.
Note that such sources are not limited to peer-reviewed publications but
also include patents, textbooks, technical reports, theses, unpublished
work posted on arXiv, and other posts on the World Wide Web. Failure to
comply with this requirement will be considered plagiarism and result in
Prior Art

Authors are expected to cite, discuss differences and novelty, and compare
results, if applicable, with respect to relevant existing publications,
provided they have been published in a peer-reviewed venue.

This also applies to patents, which also undergo a professional reviewing
process. But what about technical reports, and other non-peer-reviewed
publications, such as technical reports or papers posted on arXiv, which we
henceforth refer to as pre-publications? With the rapid progress of search
engines and the increased perusal of arXiv papers by the scientific
community, asking authors to thoroughly compare their work to these
pre-publications imposes an unreasonable burden — a seemingly relevant
report that is incomplete in its disclosure or validation might appear
online shortly before the deadline. Although peer-reviewed publications are
certainly not immune to these shortcomings, they have, at least, been
judged sufficiently complete and valid by a group of peers. Consequently,
authors are not required to discuss and compare their work with recent
pre-publications (arXiv, technical reports, theses, etc.), although they
must properly cite those that inspired them (see “Plagiarism” above).
Nevertheless, we encourage authors to mention all related works they are
aware of as good academic practice dictates. Note that with new works
posted on arXiv on a daily basis, it is increasingly likely that reviewers
might point out similarities between the submitted work and online reports
that have been missed by the authors. In this case, authors of
conditionally accepted papers should be prepared to cite these
pre-publications in their final revision as concurrent work, without the
burden of having to detail how their work compares to or differs from these
Double Submission Policy

By submitting a manuscript to the Eurographics Full Papers program, authors
acknowledge that the technical contributions they claim have not been
previously published or accepted for publication in another peer-reviewed
venue, and that no manuscript substantially similar in content is currently
under review. Violations constitute grounds for rejection.
Re-submitted material

For papers that have previously been reviewed by other venues and have been
rejected or withdrawn, the authors are encouraged to provide a cover letter
to describe the history of the paper (however, this does not imply reviewer
continuity). This cover letter can also answer the comments made in the
previous reviews, by either listing the changes that were made to comply
with them, or discussing/rebutting/clarifying some elements if need be.
Though not mandatory, this procedure is strongly encouraged. The cover
letter has to be submitted through SRM as an ‘Additional Attachment’ (see
last section of the SRM upload form for details).
Graphics Replicability Stamp Initiative

Authors who are willing to go one step further toward replicability of
their contributed algorithm and provide a complete open-source
implementation can get an additional recognition via submission to the
Graphics Replicability Stamp Initiative (see All articles published in the Computer
Graphics Forum are eligible to apply for the stamp.
