FULL PAPERS
Abstracts and full papers are submitted using the Precision Conference System (PCS).

The review process will be double-blind, so please make sure that your submission does not reveal the authors' identities or affiliations. For full papers, the submission of an abstract by the Abstract deadline is mandatory. Completed papers are due by the full paper deadline.

Checklist

  • Carefully read the authors' guidelines and make sure you follow them when preparing your submission.
  • Familiarize yourself with the different paper types and choose one for your paper. If multiple categories apply, select the one which best fits your paper.
  • Follow the formatting instructions and use the LaTeX2e style. Here are the formatting instructions
  • We do not impose strict maximum lengths for submitted papers to the full papers track. However, it is unusual for papers to exceed 10 pages (in CGF latex style including all images but excluding references). Papers should only be as long as their content would justify. Reviewers might rate a submission lower if it is perceived as being unnecessarily long. Authors are encouraged to use supplementary documents to provide extra contents.
  • Submissions must not reveal the authors’ identities.
  • Submit your abstract to PCS by the abstract deadline.

If you do not submit an abstract by this deadline, you will not be able to submit a paper. For the abstract submission, you need to fill out the parts about title, authors, paper type, abstract, and keywords in the form. The remaining fields (the document, additional material) only have to be submitted by the final deadline on the Important Dates page. Make sure that you select the correct paper type and choose appropriate keywords.

  • Submit the full paper to PCS by the full paper deadline. Your submission has to be provided in PDF format and uploaded using the document field of the submission form. Any supplementary material has to be uploaded by this deadline as well using the additional files part of the form.
  • For papers that have previously been reviewed for other venues and have been rejected or withdrawn, the authors can provide a cover letter describing the changes they have made to comply with reviewers' comments and requests. This procedure is strongly recommended and it is meant to improve the efficiency of the reviewing process but does not imply reviewer continuity. The cover letter is submitted as an 'Additional Material'.

Please see the Full Papers CFP for more details on preparing your manuscript and its content

Camera-Ready Full Papers

We ask authors of accepted papers to submit their final papers by the camera ready deadline through the PCS. To do so, please go to "submissions in progress". There, you can upload your final submission. Additionally, you may update your supplementary material. Make sure that you provide all required information in PCS. Additionally, for each paper the authors need to fill in and sign the copyright form that will be provided and send it to Eurographics publishing. This can be done by faxing it to the number on the form or by sending a scan as PDF to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. For your camera-ready manuscript submission, please carefully verify that your paper is provided in the correct format. Specifically, please closely check that your paper adheres to all of the following points:

  • Carefully read the authors' guidelines and make sure you follow them when preparing your submission.
  • The type setting of your paper needs to closely follow the guidelines in the template. You must use the camera-ready format, i.e., with authors and acknowledgments included, etc. (your final version, for example, should not include any page numbers). The template contains two formats and you need to use EGauthorGuidelines-eurovis14-fin.tex (not EGauthorGuidelines-eurovis14-sub.tex) for generating the final version.
  • All fonts should be embedded within the final paper PDF (this is a requirement of the publisher).
  • Make sure that the images that you include are not downsampled, but in high resolution (otherwise, their reproduction in the printed journal issue will not be high quality).
  • The publisher remarks that it would be good to have the included images in the CMYK color model.

  • We do not impose strict maximum lengths for submitted papers to the full papers track. However, it is unusual for papers to exceed 10 pages (in CGF latex style including all images but excluding references). 

STARS SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES

All accepted STARs will be published in Computer Graphics Forum. STARs are submitted using the Precision Conference System. Please see the STAR CFP for additional details on preparing your manuscript and its content.

irst, authors are being asked to submit an initial sketch by October 9, 2016. A STAR sketch briefly describes the planned STAR by outlining the topic, discussing its relevance for the visualization community, providing the planned structure and outline of the STAR together with all key references, and short biographies of the authors. Bibliographies should be limited to 200 words per author. The format of the sketch can be found at http://eurovis2017.virvig.es.

Submission Procedure and Formats

Due to the fact that all accepted STARs will be published in Computer Graphics Forum, the submission process a multiple-stage reviewing. The submission process is as follows:
  1. Submit a STAR sketch by October 9, 2016. The length of a STAR sketch main text is limited to two page. References and short biographies are considered extra pages and are not counted within the two-page limit. The format of the sketch should follow the format template specified in the author guidelines for the STAR. STAR sketches will be reviewed by the STAR IPC and comments on  suitability and relevance will be provided by October 30, 2016.
  2. Given the feedback given by the IPC members, the authors can submit a full STAR by January 26, 2017.
    Given recent changes on the EUROGRAPHICS policy on STARs length, we adapt accordingly the requirements for EuroVis 2017. We do not impose strict maximum lengths for submitted STARs. However, it is unusual for STARs to exceed 20 pages in CGF latex style including all images but excluding references. STARs should only be as long as their content would justify. Reviewers might rate a submission lower if it is perceived as being unnecessarily long. Authors are encouraged to use supplementary documents to provide extra contents.
    To submit, please go to "submissions in progress" in PCS. Full STAR submissions will then undergo a single blind, double cycle review, similar to the one for regular papers, where three external experts on the respective topic will evaluate the STAR.
  3. Once your full STAR submission has been accepted or conditionally accepted, submit your revised version together with a cover letter detailing your changes by April 19, 2017. To do so, please go to "submissions in progress" in PCS.
Carefully read the  author guidelines and make sure you follow the formatting instructions and use the LaTeX2e style when preparing all documents needed for your STAR submissions. Submit all documents as PDF files to PCS by the given deadlines, and make sure that you provide all required information in PCS.

A state-of-the-art report submitted to EuroVis 2017 must be original, unpublished work. Any work that has previously been published or simultaneously been submitted in a substantially similar form to any other conference or journal will be rejected.

At EuroVis 2017, the authors of a STAR will be invited to present the report at a level that also allows non-experts in the particular domain to follow their presentation. We plan to schedule each STAR as a 40-100 minute presentation as in Eurographics conferences (subject to the schedule management of the EuroVis 2017 programme, but ensuring that STAR presentations will be given a longer time slot than those of full papers).

Camera-Ready STARs

For your camera-ready manuscript submission, please carefully verify that your STAR is provided in the correct format which is specified in the author guidelines. Specifically, please closely check that your document adheres to all of the following points:

Make sure that you use the latest with the correct page headings, etc. Please compare to the sample PDF to verify the correct appearance of your document.
The typesetting of your document needs to closely follow the guidelines in the template. You must use the camera-ready format, i.e., with authors and acknowledgments included, etc.
Make sure that the images that you include are not downsampled, but are high resolution.

Additionally, for each accepted STAR the authors need to fill in and sign the copyright form and send it to Eurographics publishing. This can be done by faxing it to the number on the form or by sending a scan as PDF to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Author Guidelines - Formatting Instructions

The sketch should be submitted as a PDF file using the STARSketch, adapted from the version for full papers, but that explicitly describes the information required for this part of the submission (the archive includes a document class, a style file, a sample source file, and a corresponding PDF output file).

For the full version submission of the STAR, use these files here: LaTeX2e Style, which are in the same package template than the full papers please make sure you chose the right STAR example for it.

The length and content of STARS is described in the submission guidelines and are different than the full papers. Submissions can also include supplementary material (in case of videos, please, use only the most common video codecs to maximize the chances that the reviewers can play these).

Contributions must be written in English.
