EUROGRAPHICS Call for STARS

For the first time the two conferences Eurographics and Eurovis (EGEV) will run together, as a single event, to be hosted in Norrköping, Sweden. The conference will be hosted at the Louis de Geer Conference Centre, in the centre of the city, and will be organized by the department of Media and Information Technology at the University of Linköping, May 25th-29th, 2020.

State-of-the-Art Reports (STARs) provide an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of a special topic of current interest related to Computer Graphics. We welcome submissions on all topics relevant to EUROGRAPHICS, and particularly encourage STARs on topics that have not been covered in any recent edition. The list of recent STARs can be found here. STAR reports on cross-sectional, multi-disciplinary areas are also highly welcomed. A STAR can also address the use of Computer Graphics techniques in a different scientific discipline or in industrial practice. For examples of suitable STAR topics, please refer to the EUROGRAPHICS digital library.

Accepted STARs will be published in a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum, which appears right before the EUROGRAPHICS conference. The journal status of the proceedings requires a two-stage review process with conditional acceptance after the first round and final acceptance based on the revised submissions. Submissions needing a major revision will be transferred to the standard submission track of Computer Graphics Forum.

At EUROGRAPHICS 2020, the authors of a STAR will be given 90 minutes to present the report at a level that allows non-experts in the particular domain to follow the presentation.

Submission details

Electronic submissions of STARs is mandatory and will be conducted using the Submission and Review Management (SRMv2). Papers must be written in English and prepared according to this year’s template, which can be found on SRMv2.

The deadline for the submission of STARs is 23:59 UTC, October 24, 2019, with notification of conditional acceptance on December 18, 2019. The revised version of conditionally accepted STARs will have to be submitted at a later date for a second review, and the camera ready version will be due March 27, 2020.

The STARs undergo a single-blind review process. To demonstrate the relevant expertise needed to produce the proposed STAR, authors should include their short biographies as supplementary materials. We do not impose strict maximum lengths for these submissions. However, it is recommended that papers be up to 20 pages excluding references and the authors’ short bios, to conform to the general recommendation for CGF survey papers.
