In addition to full-length papers, there will be again a short papers track, encouraging scientific contributions from an even more diverse group of researchers and practitioners. All VCBM 2018 papers (full and short) will be peer-reviewed and will appear in the Eurographics Digital Library.
- Full Papers: We do not impose strict maximum lengths for submitted papers to the full papers track. However, it is unusual for papers to exceed 10 pages (in CGF latex style including all images and references). Papers should only be as long as their content would justify. Reviewers might rate a submission lower if it is perceived as being unnecessarily long. Authors are encouraged to use supplementary material, such videos or executable programs to provide extra contents.As in previous years, the authors of the best three papers will be invited by the Computer Graphics Forum (CGF) journal to submit a revised version, which needs to have a significant amount of novel material, and be within the focus subjects of the CGF journal.
- Short Papers: Short papers describe a more focused and concise research contribution and are likely to have a smaller – yet significant – scope of contribution. Potential examples include the presentation of initial results from novel ongoing research projects or the exploration of new application areas. Short papers draw from the same list of topics as full papers. Their length is limited to a total of 5 pages (including references).
VCBM 2018 will also feature a poster program, the details of which will be announced in a separate call.
We encourage the use of digital videos to support all submissions, particularly if part of, or all of the work covers interactive techniques. Please use only the most common video codecs such as MP4 to maximize the chances that the reviewers can view it.
