These notes give a survey on the concept of EG events and provide information for actual and future EG event organizers concerning thr procedure of approval and execution of an EG event.
EG events range from small workshops over medium sized symposia to conferences,
Severall EG event series exist most of which have a long tradition in the graphics community. Proceedings are produced and published by EG in its Digital Library, and for some EG event series as special issue of EG’s journal “Computer Graphics Forum”.
Event series, but also single events, are assigned to EG Working Groups. A major task of the EG Working Groups is to give continuity to the event series, but also establish new EG events. However, propositions from outside for new events are welcome, and they may be directed to the Chair of the EG Workshops, Symposia and Working Group Board.
ORGANIZATION OF EG EVENTS EG events are held by EG and organized by other institutions for EG. The organizers of EG events are usually chosen by EG Working Groups or steering committees associated with an EG event.
The organizers have to submit a proposal electronically on the Web-based EG Event Management Platform. The EG Technical Meeting Request Form (EG TMRF) has to be used for that purpose. Information about the procedure and the services offered by EG are described in the EG Workshops and Symposia Handbook. Important EG services are publishing, the paper submission and reviewing system SRM, and the EG Conference Package including an electronic payment and registration service.
Some EG events are co-sponsored by EG and ACM SIGGRAPH. For those events an ACM co-sponsoring TMRF has to be submitted to ACM. Furthermore, a short EG-SIGGRAPH co-sponsoring TMRF which asks for additional information has to be submitted on the EG Event Management Platform. Details on the procedure are provided by the EG Workshops and Symposia Handbook.
