Information for EG Event Organizers

EG events

This page provides information for actual and future EG event organizers concerning the procedure of approval and execution of an EG event.
EG events range from small workshops over medium sized symposia to conferences, and the  EG event series 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”.

EG Working Groups

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.

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. Organisers can find appropriate information on the process as follows.

Organisation of EG Events

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.

Organizers have to submit an EG Technical Meeting Request Form (EG TMRFelectronically via the EG Event Management Platform.

Type of Events

There are two type of events:

  1. Standard EG events. These events are held by EG and are organized by other institutions for EG.
  2. Events co-sponsored by 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.

For all questions about publishing in Europe use publishing@eg.org
