Call for STARS

Call for submissions

EUROGRAPHICS State-of-the-Art Reports (STARs) provide up-to-date and comprehensive overviews of special topics of current interest in Computer Graphics and related fields. STARs are highly valuable contributions to our community, as witnessed by the high number of citations they typically receive.

We welcome submissions on all topics relevant to EUROGRAPHICS, and particularly encourage STARs on topics that have not been covered in any recent edition. STAR reports on cross-sectional, multi-disciplinary areas are also highly welcomed. 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. A list of recent STARs can be found on the websites of recent editions e.g., for 2023, 2022, and 2021.

Accepted STARs will be published in a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum, which appears right before the EUROGRAPHICS conference. The journal status of the proceedings requires a two-stage review process with conditional acceptance after the first round and final acceptance based on the revised submissions. Submissions needing a major revision will be transferred to the standard submission track of Computer Graphics Forum.

At EUROGRAPHICS 2024, the authors of a STAR will be given 90 minutes to present the report at a level that allows non-experts in the particular domain to follow the presentation. We do not impose strict maximum lengths for these submissions. However, it is recommended that papers be up to 20 pages excluding references and the authors’ short bios, to conform to the general recommendation for CGF survey papers.

Electronic submissions of STARs are mandatory and will be conducted using the Submission and Review Management System. Papers must be written in English and prepared according to this year’s template, which can be downloaded from the Submission and Review Management (SRMv2)  system. STARs must be formatted according to the Eurographics Computer Graphics Forum guidelines and submitted as anonymous papers.
