EG 2023 : Conference of the European Association for Computer Graphics
Call For Papers
Call for Full Papers
The EUROGRAPHICS 2023 Full Papers Program will showcase innovative research in Computer Graphics and related areas. We invite submissions of new ideas and encourage all forms of research creativity and originality. We are interested in the practice, experience, novel applications, technological, system, or theoretical papers, with the ambition of setting the standard in the field and stimulating future trends.
Accepted full papers will be presented at EUROGRAPHICS 2023 and published in a special issue of the Eurographics journal Computer Graphics Forum; the submissions will undergo a double-blind two-step review process. We encourage submissions from all areas related to computer graphics, including but not limited to rendering, modeling, animation, simulation, visualization, virtual and augmented reality, display technology, image processing, computational imaging, computational fabrication, human-computer interaction, and deep learning techniques applied to graphics problems. Eurographics Full Papers will be published in the EG Digital Library. Also, Gold Open Access will be available with an extra publication fee that includes open access fee and support through the EG Digital Library.
Addendum: This year, at least one full registration per paper.
Eurographics 2023 will be hosted in Saarbrücken on May 8th-12th, 2023. It will be hosted at Saarland Informatics Campus (SIC), which is located on site of Saarland University.
Participants of Eurographics 2023 will be able to attend presentations of latest advances in computer graphics and imaging from the research and industry experts. It is also going to be a great opportunity to meet with international researchers in the domain and socialize around the conference social events.

A preliminary abstract is due by 23:59 UTC, September 23, 2022, and the full paper deadline is 23:59 UTC, September 30, 2022. Note that a full paper can only be submitted if an abstract has been submitted by the abstract deadline.
Electronic submission of all papers is mandatory and will be conducted using the Submission and Review Management (SRMv2). Papers must be written in English, must be anonymized, and must be formatted according to the Eurographics Computer Graphics Forum guidelines. The publication guidelines and LaTeX templates are available on SRMv2. Accepted papers must be presented orally in English at Eurographics 2023. Review of full papers is based on a double-blind reviewing approach, so 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 to maintain anonymity. Reviewers are asked to keep confidential all materials sent to them for evaluation.
There is no maximum length imposed on papers. However, papers should only be as long as they need to be, but not longer. Reviewers might rank submissions perceived as being either repetitive or unnecessarily long lower than they would score concisely written papers.
Authors of accepted papers will present a very short summary or a teaser during a fast-forward session. This presentation will be around 25 seconds and can be augmented by slides. To ensure a smooth organization, they will be asked to prepare a short video of the slides for this purpose, in two versions: one with the spoken text and one without. Details will be sent to accepted paper authors.
A submission to the Eurographics Full Papers program should describe the original work of the authors. Authors must not use ideas or content originating from others without properly crediting their original sources. Note that such sources are not limited to peer-reviewed publications but also include patents, textbooks, technical reports, theses, unpublished work posted on arXiv, and other posts on the World Wide Web. Failure to comply with this requirement will be considered plagiarism and result in rejection.
Authors are expected to cite, discuss differences and novelty, and compare results, if applicable, with respect to relevant existing publications, provided they have been published in a peer-reviewed venue. This also applies to patents, which also undergo a professional reviewing process. But what about technical reports, and other non-peer-reviewed publications, such as technical reports or papers posted on arXiv, which we henceforth refer to as pre-publications? With the rapid progress of search engines and the increased perusal of arXiv papers by the scientific community, asking authors to thoroughly compare their work to these pre-publications imposes an unreasonable burden — a seemingly relevant report that is incomplete in its disclosure or validation might appear online shortly before the deadline. Although peer-reviewed publications are certainly not immune to these shortcomings, they have, at least, been judged sufficiently complete and valid by a group of peers. Consequently, authors are not required to discuss and compare their work with recent prepublications (arXiv, technical reports, theses, etc.), although they must properly cite those that inspired them (see “Plagiarism” above). Nevertheless, we encourage authors to mention all related works they are aware of as good academic practice dictates. Note that with new works posted on arXiv on a daily basis, it is increasingly likely that reviewers might point out similarities between the submitted work and online reports that have been missed by the authors. In this case, authors of conditionally accepted papers should be prepared to cite these pre-publications in their final revision as concurrent work, without the burden of having to detail how their work compares to or differs from these pre-publications. When authors cite previous work that they have authored, the citation should be in the third person to preserve anonymity. There are, however, situations where such prior work should not be cited. This is the case if these prior works correspond to prepublications of the submission (arXiv), with largely similar content. In this case, it must be ensured that no publicity related to the publication is available on the web.
As authors, putting a submission on a repository like arXiv is allowed, either before submission or during the review cycle. There is no penalty for publishing a submission as a prepublication. However, if there are largely overlapping prepublications of the same authors that are available online at the time of submission (arXiv), earlier or largely similar versions of the submission should not be cited in the submission because this would identify the authors. This is consistent with the submission guidelines at SIGGRAPH and CVPR/ECCV/ICCV. After submission, the authors should try to preserve the anonymity of the submission. Specifically, the following list clarifies what is allowed and what not.
arXiv postings before and after the submission deadline. Do not state that the submission is under review for Eurographics.
YouTube video on personal account. Do not show submission id or anything that could relate to as a Eurographics submission. Authors can link the videos from the arXiv page or personal web page.
Code release on personal code repositories (e.g., github). Authors can link the code repository from the arXiv or personal web page.
It is ok to list submissions in job applications and in interviews as long as they are not referred to as Eurographics submissions.
It is ok to present the work in non-public venues in particular job talks as long as they are not referred to as Eurographics submissions.
It is ok to list submissions on author’s webpages as long as they are not referred to as Eurographics submissions.
It is ok to publicize the work via authors’ social media as long as they are not referred to as Eurographics submissions.
It is not allowed to list submissions on institutional websites irrespective of the presentation form.
No publicity via university or company PR teams regardless of whether authors or institutions are kept anonymous – this includes any postings or dissemination via institutional or promoted social media accounts.
No media interviews regardless of mainstream media or tech-focused outlets (small-scale, non-public seminars are allowed).
Do not post papers or supplementary material on university, company, or other private servers that may identify preprints as Eurographics submissions.
DOUBLE SUBMISSION POLICY
By submitting a manuscript to the Eurographics Full Papers program, authors acknowledge that the technical contributions they claim have not been previously published or accepted for publication in another peer-reviewed venue and that no manuscript substantially similar in content is currently under review. Violations constitute grounds for rejection.
For papers that have previously been reviewed by other venues and have been rejected or withdrawn, the authors are encouraged to provide a cover letter to describe the history of the paper (however, this does not imply reviewer continuity). This cover letter can also answer the comments made in the previous reviews, by either listing the changes that were made to comply with them or discussing/rebutting/clarifying some elements if need be. Though not mandatory, this procedure is strongly encouraged. The cover letter has to be submitted through SRM as an ‘Additional Attachment’ (see the last section of the SRM upload form for details).
GRAPHICS REPLICABILITY STAMP INITIATIVE
Authors who are willing to go one step further toward replicability of their contributed algorithm and provide a complete open-source implementation can get additional recognition via submission to the Graphics Replicability Stamp Initiative (see http://www.replicabilitystamp.org/). All articles published in the Computer Graphics Forum are eligible to apply for the stamp.
REBUTTAL, NOTIFICATION, PUBLICATION, AND PRIZES
The reviews will be made available to the authors on November 21, 2022. During a rebuttal period from November 21 to November 28, 2022, authors will be able to submit a brief document to address any factual errors or clarify any issues raised by reviews.
The date for notification of the results of the first round of the review process is December 13, 2022.
Revised versions of papers conditionally accepted in the first round must be submitted by January 17, 2023.
The final notification of the outcome of the second reviewing round will be made on February 3, 2023.
The camera-ready version of accepted papers will be due on February 17, 2023.
From all accepted and presented papers, an international jury will select the best papers. The best paper will receive the Günter Enderle Award, including a cash prize of €1,000, presented at Eurographics 2023.
