Industry Track call for papers

A PDF version of Industry Track call for paper is available to download from here.

In the Eurographics Symposium on Rendering (EGSR) 2019, we launch a new Industry Track which invites papers from our colleagues in industry that interest the general rendering community. The goal of this track is to provide an accessible venue for getting out ideas that have found practical use in industry and could impact the future of rendering research, but that do not meet the standards of scientific evaluation expected in formal research papers. These papers will be curated by the papers co-chairs and will be presented in the conference along with the traditional research papers.

We are looking for papers that present ideas and applications of rendering (both high-end and real-time), as well as other aspects of image synthesis (e.g., image-based rendering, rendering for AR/VR, machine learning for rendering, etc.). Topics for possible Industry Track papers could include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel rendering ideas that are interesting but might not be developed to the point of a formal research paper but which is already successfully used in practice
  • Extensions or twists on existing rendering algorithms that are found to produce better results
  • A new algorithm, tool, or process that improves rendering quality
  • A description of a state-of-the-art rendering pipeline or process in industry
  • The publication of a new tool/asset that would help facilitate research in rendering, such as the publication of a dataset of high-quality scenes
  • Position papers which pose Interesting problems found in industry rendering applications that should be more emphasized in academic research

Papers accepted in this new Industry Track will be published in the Eurographics Digital Library for archival purposes and presented at EGSR 2019, which will take place in Strasbourg, France from July 10th to 12th, 2019.

How to Submit Your Work

Please email the program chairs at chairs-egsr2019@eg.org with a PDF of your paper with the subject “Industry Track Submission” by the deadline below. The chairs will then curate the industry track program from the submitted papers and provide some feedback to the authors. We expect that most papers will be fairly short (around 1-4 pages) although authors can submit longer ones if necessary to describe their idea. The authors should use the “Industry Track” template available following this link.

Important dates (All times are midnight, 23:59 UTC)

Industry Track FAQ

Q: Can people in academia submit?

A: Yes, but we are looking for ideas that have shown practical use through some kind of industrial deployment.

Q: Should I submit to this track or to the standard research paper track?

A: This track is designed to provide a low-overheard venue to get out ideas that have practical use but have not gone through the same scientific evaluation as a research paper. However, researchers who feel that their idea would be a significant contribution to rendering community should strongly consider submitting a standard research paper.

Q: Can I submit a one-page paper?

A: Yes.

Q: Can a paper contain images from copyrighted material?

A: We expect the submissions to be as close as possible to the final version which would appear in the Eurographics Digital Library. Please clear all the material contained in the paper with the appropriate owners of the IP to ensure it can be published prior to submission.

Q: How does this new track relate to the EI&I track?

A: There is no EI&I track any more as that turned out to be another submission track for research papers. Instead, this industry track is intended for papers that focus on engineering aspects and ideas that are applicable to industry.
