Call For Papers (NOW CLOSED)
The 27th Conference organised by the UK chapter of the Eurographics Association will be the seventh Theory and Practice of Computer Graphics 2009 Conference (TP.CG.09) and takes place at Cardiff University on the 17-19 June 2009 with an extended paper deadline of March 18th, 2009. All accepted papers will be published by Eurographics and held on the Digital Library, and will be available at the conference.
The aim of the conference is to focus on theoretical and practical aspects of Computer Graphics and to bring together top practitioners, 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 applications and graphics 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
- information visualization
- virtual reality and virtual environments
- volume graphics
- web graphics
Types of Submissions
Two types of submissions are invited:
Full Papers: Submitted full papers 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. The length of full papers must not exceed 8 pages.
Work-in-Progress Papers: The Programme Committee seeks papers that describe work in progress rather than completed research. This is an opportunity to present novel or ideas in development which 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. The length of work-in-progress papers must not exceed 4 pages.
Prospective authors are invited to submit Full or Work-in-progress papers of their work in PDF on the conference management tool format. Please see the submission section for formatting instructions and how to submit.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Note that at least one of the authors from each accepted paper must register for the conference, otherwise the paper will not be included in the 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 (Visualisation 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 young
researchers can gain valuable feedback from more experienced
practitioners in the field.
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 will again be awarded to the best technical research student paper 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.
The Rob Fletcher Prize will be awarded to the best
student application paper 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.
