EG Rendering Symposium

I don't normally post conference announcements to the list, but this is an excellent symposium I have attended many times in years past (even co-chairing it one year), and the organizer, Karol Myszkowski, is a good friend of mine.



Call for Papers

The Eurographics Symposium on Rendering 2010 will take place in
Saarbrücken, Germany, from June 28 to June 30, 2010. This is the 21st
annual event in the series of very successful Eurographics Symposia on
Rendering and Eurographics Workshops on Rendering.

The local organizers are Karol Myszkowski and Elmar Eisemann and the
program chairs are Jason Lawrence and Marc Stamminger. Up-to-date
information about the conference is available on the official EGSR
2010 web site:

Conference Topics

Conference topics include (but are not limited to):

- Global illumination
- Reflectance, volumetric scattering and translucency
- Representations of material appearance
- Human perception and error measures
- Rendering hardware and its application
- Computational photography
- Rendering dynamic/animated environments
- Shadows and visibility
- Monte Carlo techniques
- Finite element techniques
- Sampling, filtering, and anti-aliasing
- Texture models, analysis, and synthesis
- Non-photorealistic rendering
- Image-based measurement and rendering
- Sensing for graphics
- Point-based rendering
- Real-time rendering and real-time ray tracing
- Systems and software architecture for rendering
- Virtual/augmented reality and interactive systems
- Audio/sound rendering

The proceedings of EGSR will be a special issue of the journal Computer
Graphics Forum. Because of this there will be a brief second review
cycle for any papers that require changes to be accepted; such papers
will only be accepted after the changes have been confirmed by the
program committee.

Important Dates

All deadlines are 11:59 p.m., US Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4).

Abstract submission deadline: Friday, April 9
Paper submission deadline: Tuesday, April 13
Author notification: Friday, May 14
Revisions due: Wednesday, May 26
Final PDF files due for printing: Friday, May 28
Symposium: June 28 - 30

The EGSR review and publication process is very short, and to achieve
this quick turnaround all deadlines must be strictly observed. In
particular, final PDF files for printing must be finished on time.

Instructions for Submission

All contributions submitted to the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering
2010 must be original, unpublished work. Any work that has previously
been published or simultaneously been submitted in substantially
similar form to any other conference or journal will be
rejected. Contributions must be written and presented in English.

Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Submitted manuscripts
should be formatted using the Eurographics publication style
proceedings templates, and be anonymized for the double-blind
reviewing process.

Papers should be as long as their content requires, but not
longer. Papers with average length requirements are expected to be 8
formatted pages long, including references and all figures; up to 10
pages will be allowed only where justified. During the review process,
each paper's contribution will be judged in proportion to its length:
a solid contribution described clearly and succinctly is more likely
to be accepted than the same result submitted in a longer paper.

All submissions must be made through the Eurographics Submission and
Review Management system, using the following URL.

The submission deadlines will be strictly enforced. The authors of
each accepted paper need to complete and return the EG Copyright
Assignment Form before the paper can be published.
