GI 2020 : Graphics Interface
Call For Papers
Graphics Interface (GI) 2020, the 46th annual conference, will be held at the University of Toronto, Canada from May 21 - 22, 2020. Graphics Interface is the only conference for Computer Graphics and Human Computer Interaction. http://graphicsinterface.org/2020
The GI 2020 program covers technical and fundamental contributions in both Graphics and HCI. We seek submissions covering all aspects of Graphics, HCI, and Visualization. All paper submissions are rigorously peer reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee.
All accepted GI papers will be indexed in the ACM Digital Library and will be open access in the Graphics Interface archive. The Michael A. J. Sweeney Award will be awarded at the conference to the best student papers in graphics and HCI. Authors of top papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions to the journals IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) and Computers & Graphics.
New this year
Unlike past years, GI will not be co-conferencing with AI/CRV, and as a result we are executing a number of exciting changes:
Registration will be significantly more affordable, student registration will be minimal.
The conference will be two days long and
will be single track (interweaving HCI and graphics talks),
Papers submission will undergo OpenReview (details below) and
Authors will find out review results less than a month after submission.
Papers can be submitted to one of three deadlines strategically placed near other graphics and HCI deadlines, and
submissions can use any format of the ACM SIGGRAPH, ACM TOG, SIGCHI, Eurographics/CGF.
First Paper Deadline: Friday, December 20, 2019, 11:59 pm EST
Author Notification for First Deadline: Friday, January 10, 2020
Second Paper Deadline: tentatively, Friday, January 24, 2020
Third Paper Deadline: tentatively, Friday, April 3, 2020
Paper Submission Information
Graphics Interface 2020 is excited to be the first Graphics/HCI conference to use OpenReview. This system – common in Machine Learning and Computer Vision – allows for increased transparency and accountability during peer review.
GI 2020 submissions will continue to be double-blind: authors will not know reviewers' identities, and reviewers will not know authors' identities. Immediately upon submission, each paper will become available publicly and anonymously and time-stamped accordingly. This eliminates the need to post submissions simultaneously on ArXiv, and consequently authors are prohibited from deanonymizing their papers by posting them on ArXiv or elsewhere. After the review period, all reviewers' scores and comments will be simultaneously revealed publicly and anonymously below each submission. (We will not allow anonymous public comments from non-reviewers). Immediately upon decision of acceptance/rejection or withdrawal, the author identities of each submission will be revealed.
Submitting to GI is format agnostic! Submissions can use any recent ACM SIGGRAPH, SIGCHI or Eurographics/Computer Graphics Forum formatting. Accepted papers will be required to reformat to a consistent GI 2020 template before uploading a final revision.
