Call for Papers:

Computer Graphics and Computer Vision are heavily used in many fields of Information Technologies nowadays. Computer Vision principles are used in many monitoring and safety systems, including image processing and pattern recognition. Computer graphics is used in animation, computer games, and scientific visualization in technical and medical applications. Virtual and augmented reality, haptic system, and 3D TV are very perspective fields combining Computer Graphics and Computer Vision to quite complex interdisciplinary applications.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.

  • Fundamental algorithms for computer graphics and computer vision
  • Model representation and simplification
  • Parametric curves and surfaces
  • Illumination techniques
  • Colors and color systems
  • Virtual and augmented reality, haptic systems
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Real time rendering
  • Image processing, image reconstruction
  • Pattern recognition
  • 3D scene reconstruction
  • Segmentation
  • Motion detection
  • Scientific and technical visualization
  • Medical imaging
  • Information visualization
  • 3D TV
  • Mobile graphics and vision system
  • Industrial application of computer graphics and vision

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the IARIA Journals.

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Regular Papers (up to 6-10 page article)

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

Work in Progress (short paper up to 4 pages long)

Work-in-progress contributions are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the contribution type as work in progress.  Authors should submit a four-page (maximum) text manuscript in IEEE double-column format including the authors' names, affiliations, email contacts. Contributors must follow the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics. The work will be published in the conference proceedings.

For more details, see the Work in Progress explanation page

Posters (poster or collection of 6 to 8 slides, including industrial presentations)

Posters are intended for ongoing research projects, concrete realizations, or industrial applications/projects presentations. Acceptance will be decided based on a 1-2 page abstract and/or 6-8 .pdf slide deck submitted through the conference submission website. The poster may be presented during sessions reserved for posters, or mixed with presentation of articles of similar topic. The slides must have comprehensive comments. One big Poster and/or the associated slides should be used for discussions, once on the conference site.

For more details, see the Posters explanation page.

Ideas (2 page proposal of novel idea)

This category is dedicated to new ideas in their early stage. Contributions might refer to PhD dissertation, testing new approaches, provocative and innovative ideas, out-of-the-box, and out-of-the-book thinking, etc. Acceptance will be decided based on a maximum 2 page submission through the conference submission website. The contributions for Ideas will be presented in special sessions, where more debate is intended. The Idea contribution must be comprehensive, focused, very well supported (details might miss, obviously). A 6-8 slide deck should be used for discussions, once on the conference site.

For more details, see the Ideas explanation page.

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will not be published in the conference’s CD Proceedings. Presentations' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your presentations to


Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals should be for three hour tutorials. Proposals must contain the title, the summary of the content, and the biography of the presenter(s). The tutorials' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your proposals to

Panel proposals

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. The panel's slide deck will be posted on the IARIA's site.
