Computer Graphics & Visual Computing (CGVC) 2017

Thursday, 14th September - Friday, 15th September, 2017

Manchester Metropolitan University, United Kingdom

Call for contributions

The annual EGUK conference is a meeting place for all those in the UK working in computer graphics and visual computing. It attracts researchers from across the country and from further afield.
The 2017 conference Computer Graphics & Visual Computing will be an overnight meeting (lunchtime to lunchtime). The conference wants to focus on increasing the dialogue between academic research groups, researchers in academic and in industrial developments. In order to facilitate such dialogue, we are seeking contributions mainly in the form of extended abstract and industrial demonstrations. However, we also welcome submissions of full papers.

Full papers - a paper of 4 to 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 minute presentation at the conference. Accepted papers will appear in the Eurographics digital library and will count as full paper publications.

Extended abstracts - 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 also be refereed by a panel drawn from the EGUK programme committee. All accepted extended abstracts will be presented as posters in a poster session and authors of selected submissions will also be expected to give a 15 minute presentation at the conference.

Industrial project abstracts - a technical abstract of 1 to 4 pages, demonstrating implementations and/or product development. Technical abstracts will be presented at the conference site as large format posters during a poster session

Accepted abstracts will appear in the Eurographics digital library. An extended abstract and industrial project abstract will not be considered as a full paper publication, instead being similar to a SIGGRAPH oneā€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.

  • Computer animation and image-based animation
