Submission and Presentation

Submission

Preparing your article

SGP 2020 welcomes articles on all covered topics; see the Call for Papers for additional details.

Typesetting: please format your article using the template for SGP available on the SRMv2 website: https://srmv2.eg.org.

Paper Length: SGP 2020 does not impose a strict maximum length for submitted papers. However, Computer Graphics Forum and SGP 2020 recommend that research papers be up to 10 pages (including all images, but excluding 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 documents to provide extra content.

Anonymization: review is based on a double-blind reviewing process, so all submitted papers must be anonymized. 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. Reviewers are asked to keep confidentiality on all materials sent to them for evaluation.

Submitting your article

Articles must be submitted, in electronic pdf format, using the Submission and Review Management (SRMv2) system.

Abstract submission: in order for a paper to be considered for publication, a corresponding abstract must first be submitted (within the abstract submission deadline — see timeline below).

Additional materials: (such as video, reference implementations, additional details) can be attached to a submission and are encouraged. Additional materials are also submitted in the SRMv2 system.

Reviewing process

Submitted papers undergo a two-stage review process, involving double-blind assessment by carefully selected reviewers. Articles are conditionally accepted after the first round. Final acceptance is determined in the second round, based on the revised version of the article.

Upon acceptance

Proceedings: accepted papers will be published in a regular issue of Computer Graphics Forum (CGForum), the International Journal of the EUROGRAPHICS Association. CGForum (Print ISSN: 0167-7055; Online ISSN: 1467-8659) is the official journal of Eurographics, published in cooperation with Wiley-Blackwell, and is one of the leading journals for researchers, developers and users of Computer Graphics in both commercial and academic environment. It has one of the highest impact factors in the field, and it is indexed by all major databases; additionally, the electronic version of all accepted work will also be indexed and accessible by the EG Digital Library.

Presentation at SGP 2020

accepted papers must be presented orally (in English) at SGP 2020. That means, in light of the COVID19 situation, that the authors must contribute their talk to the virtual presentation setup that SGP 2020 will establish.

Each paper will upload a presentation video in advance of the conference. On Tuesday, July 7, 2020, an author from each paper will be available (remotely) to answer questions about the paper during a live Q&A session. Papers will be grouped into sessions of 3-4 similar topic papers. The Q&A session will budget 10 mins per paper and we expect a mixture of questions collected in advance (read by the session chair), text-based questions, and voice-/video-based questions from the live audience.

Videos will be collected into a heavily advertised SGP 2020 Playlist. Given the high quality of papers this year and the public exposure, this may actually lead to a larger audience for all of your great work.

Authors of accepted papers should upload their talk videos by Thursday July 2, 2020.
