Computer Graphics & Visual Computing (CGVC) 2014

Wednesday, 10 September - Thursday, 11 September, 2014

University of Leeds, Leeds, United Kingdom

Call for contributions

There are two submission streams:

Extended abstract - an abstract of up to 1000 words, plus figures and references. An extended abstract can describe work in progress, interim results, industrial work, or research presented more fully elsewhere. Extended abstracts will be refereed by a panel drawn from the EGUK programme committee. Authors of accepted abstracts will be expected to give a 15 minute presentation at the conference. Accepted abstracts will appear in the Eurographics digital library. For the avoidance of doubt, an extended abstract will not be considered as a full paper publication, instead being similar to a SIGGRAPH one-page sketch or to a conference poster without an associated paper. As such, presenting an extended abstract at this conference has no effect on your ability to publish a fuller version of the same work in another venue. For more detail see below.

Full papers - a paper of 4-8 pages describing completed research. Papers will be refereed by members of the EGUK programme committee. Authors of accepted papers will be expected to give a 20-30 minute presentation at the conference. Accepted papers will appear in the Eurographics digital library and will count as full paper publications.

More information about extended abstracts

Extended abstracts are new for the 2014 conference. The aim is to allow dissemination and discussion of current research. Interim results, work-in-progress, and industrial contributions are all welcome in this stream. The programme committee is also willing to consider abstracts that describe work published elsewhere, provided such work is of interest to the UK community in graphics and visual computing and provided it is unlikely to have been brought to the community's attention through the normal routes, for example, work primarily published in another discipline entirely (e.g., psychology, medicine, astronomy).

Extended abstracts are refereed. Therefore authors need to ensure that their abstract contains sufficient information that the referees will be able to assess it correctly. Abstracts that are very short or that describe nothing novel are likely to be rejected. To maximise your chance of success please make sure your 1000 word extended abstract contains:

  1. The novel contribution that your paper makes to the field.
  2. Technically interesting work that is within the scope of "computer graphics and visual computing."
  3. Sufficient detail about your work to allow the committee to make a fair judgement about the relevance and novelty of your contribution.

Writing a good abstract maximises the chance that the programme committee will recognise the value of your work, and hence increases the chance of being accepted. We recommend you use the following five clearly headed sections.

Context: In one or two sentences summarise the background context to your work; clearly state why it is an important question to study.

Objective: Describe the purpose of your project, clearly state the problem you set out to investigate in the work you have done.

Method: Summarize the technical approach, apparatus, or software you have used or developed in the project.

Results: Describe the results that you have obtained, be as specific as possible and if appropriate quantify the results.

Novelty: Please clearly state the novel contribution of your work in comparison to previous publications in the field. If you have previously published in this area, please explain how this work differs from your previous work. If you are presenting work previously published elsewhere please explain where and explain why that work should be presented to this audience.

Figures etc.: You can add figures, graphs and diagrams to the extended abstract, in addition to the 1000 words. Do this only if there is information that it is not possible to put in the text-only abstract and please do not use these to try to sidestep the 1000 word limit by, for example, using overly-long figure captions.

References: Should be included. These do not count towards your 1000 word limit.
