The Eurographics Symposium on Rendering 2016 will take place in Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland, over 22-24 June 2016. This 27th event continues the series of highly successful Eurographics Symposia and Workshops on rendering. It will be co-located with Eurographics High Performance Graphics, which will be held 20-22 June 2016.
With the success of the last year’s submission process, the “Experimental Ideas & Implementations” track will be maintained in addition to the traditional EGSR papers track (the “CGF track”). Authors will have the choice of submitting their work to the CGF track, the experimental track, or both.
The CGF submission track will remain as is, continuing the long tradition of disseminating state-of-the-art scientific results in rendering and related fields. Accepted papers in this track will be published as an issue of Computer Graphics Forum after a full peer review, including a rebuttal and a second review cycle.
The “Experimental Ideas & Implementations” conference-papers track has as an explicit goal to solicit submissions that describe either exciting new ideas that have not yet been validated according to the high academic standard of the CGF track, or interesting implementation issues for known algorithms in industry-scale uses. The requirements on comparisons to related work, citations, and quality of results are relaxed in exchange for key questions such as the following. Is the idea stimulating and interesting? Would it spark discussion and give valuable insights to the rendering community? Papers in this track will undergo full double-blind peer review using its own review form, and will be published in the EGSR conference proceedings series and in the Eurographics Digital Library, but not the CGF journal. There is no rebuttal or second review cycle. Consistent with common practice, authors would have the opportunity to build upon the conference paper, add comparisons and validation, and submit the work to a journal later. Please see below for FAQ regarding the new track.
For both tracks, we are looking for work that shapes the future of rendering and related fields. In particular, we encourage submission in the related topics of appearance modeling, virtual/augmented reality, computational displays, fabrication, and hardware architectures. Neither track imposes a fixed maximum paper length. However, submissions over 12 pages in length will be treated as exceptional cases, and length must be proportional to contribution.
If a paper is submitted to both tracks, the reviewers will be initially left oblivious of this fact. Of those papers rejected from the CGF track, the chairs at their discretion may select the strongest of those papers and submit them for an accelerated review to EI&I. Core conference topics include (but are not limited to):
- Global illumination
- Real-time and offline rendering
- Acquisition, modeling, and manipulation of light transport & appearance
- Realistic, non-photorealistic, 2D, and 3D image processing & synthesis
- Mathematical techniques for image synthesis
- Computational photography/optics/displays
- Image synthesis for augmented or virtual reality
- Software and hardware systems/architectures for rendering
- Audio/sound rendering
