End of September 2020, the annual Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine (EG VCBM) will take place.
Update: The submission deadline for full/short/survey papers has been extended to July 17, 2020.
In addition to full-length papers, there will be again a short papers track and a survey track, encouraging scientific contributions from an even more diverse group of researchers and practitioners. All VCBM 2020 papers (full, short and surveys) will be peer-reviewed and will appear in the Eurographics Digital Library.
We encourage the use of digital videos to support all submissions, particularly if part of, or all of the work covers interactive techniques. Please use only the most common video codecs such as MP4 to maximize the chances that the reviewers can view it.
Full Papers: We do not impose strict maximum lengths for submitted papers to the full papers track. However, it is unusual for papers to exceed 10 pages (in CGF latex style including all images and references). Papers should only be as long as their content would justify. Reviewers might rate a submission lower if it is perceived as being unnecessarily long or might recommend it for a short paper, instead. Authors are encouraged to use supplementary material, such as videos or executable programs to provide extra content.
Short Papers: Short papers describe a more focused and concise research contribution and are likely to have a smaller – yet significant – scope of contribution. Potential examples include the presentation of initial results from novel ongoing research projects or the exploration of new application areas. Short papers draw from the same list of topics as full papers. Their length is limited to a total of 5 pages (including references).
Surveys: We do not impose strict maximum lengths for submitted papers to the surveys track. However, it is unusual for surveys to exceed 20 pages (in CGF latex style including all images and references). Authors are encouraged to use supplementary material, such as videos, to provide extra content.
As in previous years, VCBM 2020 will also feature a poster program and an image contest, the details of which will be announced in a separate call.
Papers can be submitted using the Eurographics SRM conference management system: https://srmv2.eg.org/COMFy/Conference/VCBM_2020
