Computer Graphics and Visual Computing 2019 Call for Papers

The 37th Annual Conference organised by the 
  UK chapter of the Eurographics Association,
12-13 September 2019, Bangor University, UK

The annual EGUK conference is a meeting place for all those in the UK
working in computer graphics and visual computing (including, Computer
Graphics and Vision, Information and Scientific Visualization, and
Visual Analytics). It attracts researchers from across the country and
from further afield.

The 2019 conference Computer Graphics & Visual Computing will be an
overnight meeting (lunchtime to lunchtime). The conference wants to
focus on increasing the dialogue between academic research groups,
researchers in academic and in industrial developments. In order to
facilitate such dialogue, we are seeking contributions in the form of
full papers, short papers, viewpoint papers and extended abstracts
(posters). Optional single-blind or double-blind - reviewers’
identities are not revealed. Authors may choose whether to anonymize
their submission or not.

• Full papers - a paper of 4 to 8 pages describing completed
research, plus an additional page of references. Papers are refereed
by members of an international program committee (IPC). Authors of
accepted papers are expected to give a 15-20 minute presentation at
the conference. Accepted papers will appear in the Eurographics
digital library and will serve as full paper publications.

• Short papers - The purpose of short papers is to present
late-breaking results, work-in-progress, and follow-up extensions or
evaluations of existing methods. Short papers will be peer-reviewed in
a one-stage process by an international program committee (IPC). They
will be electronically archived and are fully citable
publications. Submissions for the short paper track should be at most
4 pages, with an additional page allowed for references. Accepted
short papers will be presented orally at the conference in
(approximately) 12-15 minute presentations.

• Viewpoint Papers (aka. Position paper) - Viewpoint paper track
enables researchers a new possibility to publish their
ideas. Viewpoints articles offer detailed technical opinions on trends
in visual computing or reports on how visual computing has contributed
to the comprehension of data or phenomena, without the need to present
completed research work and/or validated results. We encourage
discussions of challenges or limitations in today's methods and areas
of potential new topics of research. We are also interested in
application discussions that focus on, for example, the areas of
physical, life or social sciences, engineering, or commerce, or areas
related to the process of visual computing in general. We encourage an
emphasis on lessons learned from practical experience for application
discussions, particularly where visual computing has been employed in
a real, working environment. Viewpoint papers are submitted with
author names and affiliations (at most 4-pages). Accepted viewpoint
papers will be electronically archived, are fully citable publications
and will be presented orally at the conference in (approximately)
12-15 minute presentations.

• Extended Abstracts (Poster Papers) - The purpose of this track is
to present late-breaking results, work in progress, and follow-up
extensions or evaluations of existing methods. In particular, it
provides young researchers, especially postgraduate students, with
valuable opportunities to receive feedback from other researchers, and
engage in stimulating discussions. The poster track will be managed by
the co-chair team and the International Program Committee (IPC). We
solicit poster submissions in the form of an extended abstract of at
most 2 pages (with an additional page allowed for references only).

Posters will be peer-reviewed in a one-stage process. Accepted
posters, size A1 recommended, will be presented at the poster viewing
session of the conference.

In addition to directly submitted posters, some submissions to the
full, short and viewpoint paper tracks, that are not accepted for
publication but are deemed suitable, will be offered an opportunity to
be presented as posters. Such submissions will not require an
additional review process.

Accepted abstracts (poster papers) do not appear in the Eurographics
digital library, and will not be considered as a paper publication,
instead being similar to a SIGGRAPH one-page sketch or to a conference
poster without an associated full paper. As such, presenting an
extended abstract or a poster at the conference has no effect on your
ability to publish a fuller version of the same work in another venue.
