Call for State of the Art Reports

** NEW for EG 2015: Accepted STARs will be published in Computer Graphics Forum **

State-of-the-Art Reports (STARs) provide an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of a special topic of current interest related to Computer Graphics. We welcome submissions on all topics relevant to EUROGRAPHICS, and particularly encourage STARs on topics that have not been covered in any recent previous STAR. A STAR can also address the use of Computer Graphics techniques in a different scientific discipline or in industrial practice. For examples of suitable STAR topics, please refer to the EUROGRAPHICS digital library.

At EUROGRAPHICS 2015, the authors of a STAR will be given 90 minutes to present the report at a level that also allows non-experts in the particular domain to follow this presentation.

For any questions concerning STAR submissions please contact the STARs co-chairs Kai Hormann and Oliver Staadt.

Submission Details

This year, STARs will undergo a single blind, double cycle review, similar to the one for regular papers. Hence, there is no need to prepare a STAR proposal first, and the full-length STAR with no more than 25 pages must be submitted before the submission deadline. Each STAR will be reviewed by three members of the IPC who are experts in the respective topic. Accepted STARs will be published in a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum, which appears right before the Eurographics conference. Submissions needing a major revision will be transferred to the standard submission track of Computer Graphics Forum.

Brief biographies of the authors should be included in the submission, demonstrating their qualification to produce the proposed STAR.

Electronic submissions of STARs is mandatory and will be conducted using the Submission and Review Management System (SRMv2).

The deadline for the submission of STAR proposals is 23:59 UTC/GMT, September 17, 2014, with notification of conditional acceptance on January 14, 2015. The revised version of conditionally accepted STARs will have to be submitted at a later date for a second review, and the camera ready version will be due about 6 weeks before the start of the conference.
