The 22nd Conference organised by the UK chapter of the Eurographics Society will be the second Theory and Practice of Computer Graphics 2004 Conference (TP.CG.04) and takes place at the University of Bournemouth on 8th to 10th June 2004 with a paper deadline of February 20th 2004. All accepted papers will be published in an IEEE Computer Society Press conference proceedings, available at the conference.


Call for Papers

The aim of this conference is to focus on theoretical and practical aspects of Computer Graphics and to bring together top practicioners, users and researchers, which will hopefully inspire further collaboration between participants particularly between academia and industry.

The Programme Committee is seeking refereed papers and work-in-progress reports in all aspects of computer graphics and its applications. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • computer animation
  • computer-based art and entertainment
  • computational geometry
  • display technologies
  • fundamental algorithms
  • graphics application systems
  • graphics architectures and acceleration hardware,
  • fractal and natural phenomena
  • human computer interaction
  • image processing
  • Internet graphics and collaborative environments
  • medical imaging
  • modelling methods
  • rendering techniques
  • texture synthesis
  • scientific visualization
  • informaiton visualization
  • virtual reality and virtual environments
  • volume graphics
  • web graphics

Instructions to Authors

Two types of submissions are invited:

Refereed Papers. Full papers must be submitted, which will be refereed by members of the Programme Committee and appointed sub-referees. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings, with a clear indication that they have passed through a full review process.

Work-in-Progress Papers. The Programme Committee also welcomes papers and extended abstracts that describe work in progress, rather than completed research. This is also an opportunity to present novel or controversial ideas, which perhaps are yet to be fully worked through. In the past, many young researchers benefited from such opportunities. Each submission will be reviewed by a small panel in the Programme Committee for its relevance to the field and suitability for conference presentation. Accepted full papers in this category will also be included the Conference Proceedings.

Prospective authors are invited to email full papers of their work in Postscript (ps) or PDF format by 20th February 2004 (extended), to Paul G. Lever, at

Please include in each submission information indicating the contact author, the contact address and the submission category.


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

Authors are encouraged to submit colour images of diagrams and illustrations that are used in their paper. These images will be collated and included in an accompanying CD.

Young Researchers Forum

This is a special session that was introduced in the 2000 conference, and it is designed for the young researcher to present the work proposed for and carried out within their research programme. We welcome submissions from any postgraduate researcher for whom there is a research element in their higher degree submission (viz. MA/MSc and PhD/DPhil students).

The format of submissions is the same as Work-in-Progress papers, but special considerations will be given to the nature of the postgraduate programme.

It is intended for this forum to provide a less formal platform where innovative ideas can easily be aired and discussed, and that the young researcher can gain valuable feedback from more experienced practitioners in the field.

Best Paper Award

The Ken Brodlie Prize (worth £50 and a bottle of malt whisky) will be awarded to the author(s) of the best paper on the basis of both the written paper and its presentation.

The Terry Hewitt Prize for Best Research Student Paper

Following the introduction of this new prize at the 2000 conference, the Terry Hewitt Prize will again be awarded to the best research student on the basis of both the written paper and its presentation. All papers submitted by Master students and Ph.D students will be eligible for this prize.
