PG2021 Call For Papers

The 28th and 29th Pacific Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications (Pacific Graphics 20+21) will be jointly hosted in Wellington, New Zealand from October 18 to 21, 2021. Pacific Graphics is an annual flagship conference of the Asia Graphics Association. As a highly successful conference series, Pacific Graphics provides a premium forum for researchers, developers, practitioners in the Pacific Rim and around the world to present and discuss new problems, solutions, and technologies in computer graphics and related areas. Note that PG2021 made changes to its submission structure and offers both calls for Journal Track and Conference Track papers.

Call for Papers of Journal Track: Papers containing high-quality original and unpublished results are solicited for the journal track. Papers submitted to the Journal Track will be going through the same process as the original full papers of PG. All accepted journal track papers will be published in a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum (CGF), the journal of the Eurographics Association, in print and online in 2021. Selected submissions with strong potential but not accepted as full papers will be recommended for a second review cycle of CGF after major revisions.

The expected topics include (but are not limited to): modeling, rendering, animation, imaging, visualization, virtual reality/augmented reality, human-computer interaction, graphics systems, and related disciplines. Each paper should be 7-12 pages in length for a journal paper. Each paper receives reviews from the committee and external tertiary reviewers. Committee members know the authors’ identities, but tertiaries do not. Authors do not know the identities of the reviewers. Authors will have opportunities to address reviewers’ concerns in a rebuttal period after the first cycle of reviewing before decisions are made.

Please remove all personal data (e.g., name, affiliation, etc.) from your submission.

Call for Papers of Conference Track: The Conference track of PG2021 invites recent research contributions to the community of Computer Graphics in the following types: short papers, posters and Work-In-Progress (WIP) papers. All the accepted submissions of PG2021 will be archived in the PG2021 proceedings in the EG digital library. All the short papers and WIP papers will be orally presented and posters will be presented in the poster session. Selected and promising short papers will be invited to submit an extended full-paper version to Computers & Graphics.

Each short paper should be 4-6 pages in length, and posters and WIP papers should be no more than 2 pages. Each submission will be reviewed by the committee and external tertiary reviewers. Committee members know the authors’ identities, but tertiaries do not.

Please remove all personal data (e.g., name, affiliation, etc.) from your submission.

Joint conference of PG2020 and PG2021: Because of travel restrictions and physical distancing requirements due to COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the physical conference of PG2020 and combine it with Pacific Graphics 2021 in Wellington. Taking into account the latest updates of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the New Zealand government in 2021, we plan to hold the conference in a hybrid format, where both online and physical presentation and attendance will be supported. The increased size of the joint PG 20+21 conference will make it a great platform for celebrating recent research achievements in the Computer Graphics community. Any update will be shared through our conference website.

As a premier forum for exchanging recent research ideas and practical achievements – Pacific Graphics is of exceptional value for students, academics and industry researchers.
