Computer Graphics International Call for Papers

 CGI 2023

COMPUTER GRAPHICS INTERNATIONAL, CGI 2023, Shanghai, Aug. 28- Sept. 01, 2023

CGI is one of the oldest annual international conferences on Computer
Graphics in the world. Researchers are invited to share their
experiences and novel achievements in various fields of Computer
Graphics and Virtual Reality. Previous recent CGI conferences have
been held in Sydney, Australia (2014), Strasbourg, France (2015),
Heraklion, Greece (2016), Yokohama, Japan (2017), Bintan, Indonesia
(2018), and Calgary in Canada (2019). CGI has been virtual between
2020 and 2022 due to the COVID pandemic.

This year, CGI 2023 is organized by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and
University of Sydney, and supported by the Computer Graphics Society
(CGS), CGI 2023 will (hopefully) be held as a hybrid event - allowing
both onsite and online participation - in Shanghai. The Visual
Computer is the official journal of the Computer Graphics Society.

You are invited to submit your full paper to CGI 2023. As in previous
years, CGI 2023 papers can be submitted either on March 10 for
possible publication in the Visual Computer journal, or June 12 for
possible publication in the CAVW Journal, VRIH journal and CGI
Conference Proceedings (LNCS,Springer) .

For the paper submissions for the Visual Computer Journal Publication,
you will be able to edit your submission up to the paper submission
deadline (GMT 23:59, 10 March 2023).

The main topics of the CGI 2023 conference include (but not limited to):

  *  Rendering Techniques                  
  *  Metaverse (VR/MR/XR)

Submission Guidelines:

1. Submission via Easychair System (open for submissions from Jan.01 2023):

2. Submission timelines

2.1 Paper submissions for Visual Computer Journal:

Submission deadline:                               March 10, 2023, GMT 23:59
Preliminary notification:                          April 22, 2023
Deadline to Receive Revised Papers from Authors:   May 18, 2023
Final Notification of Revised Papers:              June 15, 2023

2.2 Submissions for CAVW Journal, VRIH Journal, and CGI LNCS Proceedings:

Submission deadline:         June 12, 2023, GMT 23:59
Paper notification:          July 13, 2023
Camera-ready Version:        August 5, 2023

For all papers calls, paper submissions will consist of 8-12 pages. A
template for the full paper submission is available at Microsoft Word
). Papers should be submitted in PDF format. This PDF paper should NOT
contain any name or affiliation (blind paper). You may include videos
in MP4, WMV and AVI format in the easychair system for your paper
submission. For multiple videos, please use zip file. Please note that
there is a maximum file size of 40 MB per submission.

We strongly encourage authors to improve the reproducibility of their
research along three directions: open data, open implementations, and
appropriate evaluation design and reporting. Where possible, we invite
authors to use open data or to make their data and code available for
open access by other researchers.

Note that for ALL submissions, the review process is double blind,
which requires the paper and all supplemental materials to be
anonymous. Ensure that self-referencing is anonymous (refer to your
full name rather than “I” or “we”). Avoid providing
information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments
(e.g. co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material
(e.g. titles in the movies, or attached papers). Avoid providing links
to websites that identify the authors. Violation of any of these
guidelines will lead to rejection without review.

Call for CGI 2023 Workshops

The CGI 2023 conference will host a variety of satellite events
including workshops, challenges, and tutorials. Workshops have become
essential components of CGI conferences, particularly as the field has
undergone steady growth and has expanded into a diverse set of
areas. The deadline for submission of workshop/special sessions
proposals is 25 February 2023. Final decisions on revised proposals
will be 8 March 2023. More details can be found in the website:

Call for CGI 2023 Challenges

Among other satellite events, challenges have become an integral part
of CGI 2023. Their aim is to provide a fair and direct comparison of
different methodological solutions to a common problem. Challenges
should address a well-defined open problem relevant to computer
graphics and virtual reality, provide high-quality data for testing /
training algorithms, and define a clear assessment procedure. Examples
of topics from previous challenges include: rendering, modeling,
animation, segmentation, detection and visualization. Proposals
related to accessible, fair, responsible, and translational graphics
applications are particularly welcome. The deadline for submission of
challenge proposals is 25 February 2023.Final decisions on revised
proposals will be 8 March 2023. More details can be found in the
