CG:YRF 2022 : Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum
Call For Papers
The 38th International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG 2022) is planned to take place in Berlin, Germany, June 07–10, 2022. It brings together the global community of researchers who work on a large variety of aspects that combine geometry, algorithms and applications. To allow a broad audience to actively participate in the community's major scientific event, this year SoCG will again be accompanied by a series of satellite events, which together constitute "CG Week 2022". See https://www.inf.fu-berlin.de/inst/ag-ti/socg22/index.html for details.
One of these satellite events will be the "Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum" (CG:YRF), which is aimed at current and recent students. The active involvement by students and recent graduates in research, discussions, and social events has been longstanding tradition in the CG community. Participation in a top-level event such as SoCG can be educating, motivating, and useful for networking, both with other students and with more senior scientists.
The YRF presents young researchers (defined as not having received a formal doctorate before January 1, 2020) an opportunity to present their work (in progress as well as finished results) to the CG community in a friendly, open setting. Just like in the main event, presentations will be given in the form of talks. A pre-screening (but no formal review process) will ensure appropriate quality control.
The idea of the event is for young researchers to present new and ongoing work. Therefore, the work should not have appeared in print in a formally reviewed proceedings volume or journal by the time of submission deadline, and at least one author must be a young researcher.
Topics must fit into the general context of SoCG, as described in the call for SoCG submissions.
Submissions must be formatted according to the same style file as regular SoCG submissions and not exceed 80 lines, excluding front matter, references. To ensure an accurate line counting, authors must use the LaTeX class file socg-lipics-v2021, which is a wrapper around the standard LIPIcs class. Authors should refrain from putting excessive amounts of texts in parts in which lines are not counted automatically.
Submissions can contain an appendix of arbitrary length to provide further details for the screening process, but the main body of the text should be understandable without reading the appendix. Appendices will also not be contained in the booklet (see below).
The EasyChair submission link is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cgweek2022
Accepted abstracts will be compiled in a booklet of abstracts that will be distributed among the participants; this should not be considered a formal publication. In particular, participants are encouraged to submit (an extended version of) their presented work to a conference with formal proceedings and/or to a journal. Booklets of abstracts from previous years' YRF are available on https://www.computational-geometry.org
The work must be presented at CG:YRF by an author who is a young researcher. Otherwise, it will be removed from the program. Given the developing COVID-19 pandemic, the format of both attendance and presentation will be clarified closer to the event.
We will employ a two-phase screening process. After the first review phase, there will be a notification of either rejection (if the result is clearly out of scope, or technically incorrect), or conditional acceptance, accompanied with a description of required changes to be made (either with respect to content or format). In the second phase, we will check whether the changes have been implemented satisfactorily. The screening process is intended to ensure the technical quality of the presented work. Submissions that are not well-written risk rejection, irrespective of correctness. Authors are strongly encouraged to have their submissions proofread by their advisor or another experienced scientist.
Some young researchers need more time to arrange for travel, visas, or funding. For such cases, we have an early deadline for which there will be an early notification of conditional acceptance. All submissions will be judged according to the same standards of quality regardless of which submission date was used. The early submission date is before the SoCG notification date, and it is acceptable to have parallel submission of the same results; however, it will be expected that the YRF submission will be withdrawn if the full paper is accepted to SoCG. The reviewing for YRF is completely independent of the reviewing for SoCG.
