HPG 2020 : High-Performance Graphics
Call For Papers
We are pleased to announce High-Performance Graphics 2020. High-Performance Graphics is the leading international forum for performance-oriented graphics and imaging systems research including innovative algorithms, efficient implementations, languages, compilers, parallelism, and hardware architectures for high-performance graphics. The conference brings together researchers, engineers, and architects to discuss the complex interactions of parallel hardware, novel programming models, and efficient algorithms in the design of systems for current and future graphics and visual computing applications.
High-Performance Graphics is co-sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and Eurographics. The program features three days of paper and industry presentations, with ample time for discussions during breaks, lunches, and the conference banquet. The conference is co-located with SIGGRAPH 2020 in Washington, D.C. and will take place on July 16-18, 2020.
We invite original and innovative performance-oriented contributions to the design of algorithms, programming systems, and hardware architectures, for all areas of graphics in the broadest sense, including rendering, virtual and augmented reality, ray tracing, physics, and animation. We also invite contributions to the emerging areas in visual computing such as high-performance computer vision and machine learning as well as topics on compiler and language technology. Topics include (but are not limited to)
Hardware and systems for high-performance graphics
Graphics hardware simulation, optimization, and performance measurement

Paper Submission Information
HPG has a single track for paper submission. The International Program Committee will designate each accepted paper as a “Journal Paper” or “Conference Paper.” This decision will be based on the maturity of the work and its presentation, not necessarily the magnitude of the contribution. Journal Papers will be published in a special issue of the Proceedings of the ACM in Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (PACMCGIT) journal. Conference Papers will appear in the HPG 2020 proceedings. Both Journal and Conference papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and Eurographics Digital Library.
Authors are invited to upload papers electronically in Adobe PDF format by visiting the submission area. Submissions must be anonymous (in which the paper contains no identifying information). Video sequences in standard formats may be submitted using the electronic submission system. Dual submission to other peer-reviewed conferences or journals is not allowed; any paper submitted to another peer-reviewed venue and under consideration during the HPG review cycle will be rejected.
Submitted papers will be evaluated by the International Program Committee and external reviewers using double-blind peer review. There is no rebuttal process. Accepted papers will require a second round of peer review to verify that the mandatory changes have been implemented.
For further information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paper Length and Format
Papers should be formatted according to the ACM SIGGRAPH publication guidelines and use the “sigconf” style. Note that papers accepted as “Journal Papers” may require changing the format while preparing the final camera-ready version.
There is no fixed maximum length for a paper. However, the magnitude of the contribution must be proportional to the length of the paper. Papers longer than ten typeset pages must make a very significant contribution to be accepted.
Writing plays an important role in the assessment. Omitting important details or tampering with formatting rules may cause a paper to be graded lower than a longer paper that is clearly written, without being repetitive or verbose.
Hot 3D Systems Track
We invite vendors in the graphics industry to submit presentations of their latest and greatest graphics chips, high-performance software, and system designs. Presentations should be 20 minutes long, with a focus on technical aspects of real products (marketing-oriented talks will no be accepted). Hot 3D presentations are not considered archival publications for the purposes of future submission to peer-reviewed venues.
For further information please contact: email@example.com.
We also invite the submission of posters describing ongoing or late-breaking work. In addition to traditional posters, this session will be enhanced to provide opportunities for paper authors to present implementation details or hands-on demonstrations.
Posters will be exhibited in the break areas throughout the conference. For each poster, we will attempt to make space available upon request for interactive demonstrations. Poster authors will be responsible for printing the poster, bringing it to the conference, and setting it up. Easels will be provided.
Poster Submission Info
Prepare an extended abstract (one page maximum) that summarizes the work using the paper format described above.
Prepare a high-quality version of the final poster.
Send both items (in PDF format) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For further information please contact: email@example.com.

Wolfgang Strasser Best Paper Award
An award of $1000 will be given to the authors of the most outstanding paper presented at the event. The award is based on the accuracy, originality, and importance of the technical concept, the quality and readability of the manuscript, as well as the content and delivery of the verbal presentation. The winner will be chosen by the organizing committee based on audience feedback and will be announced at the end of the conference.
Presenters and participants are invited to bring prototypes and products for demonstration at the event. Demonstrations will be held during breaks, during the poster session, and before and after the sessions. We highly encourage paper authors and industry presenters to demonstrate their systems. Please contact the organizing committee by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for space or electrical connections that may be required for your demonstration.
More information coming soon!
HPG now extends a diversity scholarship program for funding travel and expenses to attend the conference. The scholarship application will be open to individuals in underrepresented groups working in graphics and related research areas. Our program provides both travel and registration scholarships to HPG. For information on the program and how to apply see Diversity Scholarship page.
