Call for Full Papers
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.

* All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC
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 deadline.
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 rejection.
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 pre-publications.
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.
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 http://www.replicabilitystamp.org/). All articles published in the Computer Graphics Forum are eligible to apply for the stamp.
Rebuttal, Notification, Publication, and Prizes
- The reviews will be made available to the authors on November 23, 2020. During a rebuttal period from November 23 to November 29, 2020, authors will be able to submit a brief document to address any factual errors or clarify any issues raised by reviews.
- The date for notification of the results of the first round of the review process is December 14, 2020.
- Revised versions of papers conditionally accepted in the first round must be submitted by January 22, 2021.
- The final notification of the outcome of the second reviewing round will be made on February 8, 2021.
- The camera-ready version of accepted papers will be due on February 22, 2021.
- From all accepted and presented papers, an international jury will select the best papers. The best paper will receive the Günter Enderle Award, including a cash prize of €1,000, presented at Eurographics’2021.
