EGSR 2018 : 29th Eurographics Symposium on Rendering
Conference Series : Eurographics Symposium on Rendering Techniques
Call For Papers
The Eurographics Symposium on Rendering 2018 will take place at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Karlsruhe, Germany from July 2nd to July 4th, 2018. This 29th event continues the series of highly successful Eurographics Symposia and Workshops on Rendering.
EGSR has two different tracks: the Experimental Ideas & Implementations (EI & I) track, and the Computer Graphics Forum (CGF) track. Authors have the choice of submitting their work to the CGF track, the EI & I track, or both.
The CGF track continues the tradition of disseminating the state-of-the-art scientific results in rendering and related fields. Accepted papers in this track will be published in an issue of Computer Graphics Forum after a full journal-style peer review, including a rebuttal and a second review cycle.
The EI & I track emphasizes criteria such as whether the idea is stimulating and provides valuable insights to the rendering community, while the requirements on comparisons to related work and citations are relaxed. It thus serves as a venue for soliciting exciting new ideas that have not yet been fully validated according to the high academic standards of the CGF track, or that describe interesting implementation issues for known algorithms in practical industry-scale uses. Papers in this track will undergo full double-blind peer review, and will be published in the EGSR conference proceedings series and in the Eurographics Digital Library, but not the CGF journal. There is neither a rebuttal nor a second review cycle, however. As is common for conference papers, authors have the opportunity to build upon their work, add comparisons and validation, and submit to a journal later. Please the FAQ below for further information on the EI & I track.
For both tracks, we are looking for work that shapes the future of rendering and related fields. We would like to emphasize that the conference is not exclusively about rendering, and we encourage submissions in the related topics of appearance modeling, virtual/augmented reality, computational displays, fabrication, and hardware architectures.
Neither track imposes a fixed maximum paper length. However, submissions over 12 pages in length will be treated as exceptional cases, and length must be proportional to contribution.
If a paper is submitted to both tracks, the paper will initially be reviewed using the CGF process, and reviewers will be unaware of the dual-track submission. If such a paper is rejected from the CGF track, it will then undergo an accelerated EI & I review.
Core conference topics include (but are not limited to):
- Global illumination
- Real-time and offline rendering
- Statistics and machine learning-based techniques for image synthesis
- Acquisition, modeling, and manipulation of light transport & appearance
- Realistic, non-photorealistic, 2D, and 3D image processing & synthesis
- Computational photography, optics & displays
- Human perception of rendered images
- Image synthesis for augmented or virtual reality
- Software and hardware systems/architectures for rendering
- Audio/sound rendering
We hope to see you and your work in Karlsruhe!
