9th Central European Seminar on Computer Graphics 2005
Budmerice castle, Slovakia; May 9th - 11th, 2005
Don't miss the first deadline (announcement of participation) -
it's already soon: December 10, 2004
We are proud to announce the ninth Central European Seminar on Computer
Graphics for students, to be held in Budmerice (together with SCCG
2005) in early May, 2005. This international seminar is a continuation
of CESCG '97, CESCG '98, CESCG '99, CESCG 2000, CESCG 2001, CESCG 2002,

Aims and Scope of CESCG
The main idea of CESCG is to bring undergraduate students who are
interested in computer graphics together across the borders of
universities and countries. The seminar is also intended to be an
international event, where students can present their excellent work to
other students. Actively participating students are, therefore,
required to have studied computer science (or something similar) for at
least five or six semesters. Sufficient expertise in giving a talk as
well as reasonable knowledge of the English language is also required
for active participation.
Of course, the overall topic of CESCG is computer graphics.
Specifically, the following fields are covered by the seminar:
- Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality
- Scientific Visualization, Information Visualization
- Rendering and Global Illumination
- Animation, Multimedia, and Internet technologies
- Graphical Human-Computer Interaction
- Geometric Modelling, Computational Geometry
- Simulation and Graphics
- Artistic Rendering
- Image Processing, Computer Vision
Outline of the Seminar
CESCG is planned to be held in Budmerice at the beginning of May 2005.
Students have enough time to arrive in Budmerice on the first day (in
time), even from the distant locations. There are approximately 24
talks (including time for discussions) scheduled for all three days in
total. The program of the seminar is divided into morning and
afternoon sessions. Time for lunch and coffee breaks is reserved as
well. After the first and second day of the seminar, there are social
programs in the evening, e.g., going to a pub. There is of course the
possibility to sleep in Budmerice.
International Program Committee
Papers submitted to CESCG are reviewed by well-known researchers in the
field of computer graphics to provide the authors with constructive
feedback so they can improve their articles before publication. This
means that papers are not rejected due to reviewing, but only
recommendations on how to improve the papers are provided. The
following International Program Committee (IPC) has been established
for CESCG (alphabetically ordered):
- Andrej Ferko, Bratislava
- Helwig Hauser, Vienna
- Laszlo Szirmay-Kalos, Budapest
- Radoslaw Mantiuk, Szczecin
- Jiri Zara, Prague
- Michael Wimmer, Vienna
Again, we will have two very interesting invited talks by
- Reinhard Klein (Germany) and
- Radoslaw Mantiuk (Poland)
The seminar language is English, i.e., CESCG papers are written
in English and presentations are also given in English language.
Active participation in the form of a published and presented
paper has to follow the following process: first, a certain set
of computer graphics groups in Central Europe are invited to
participate through the dissemination of this call for
participation. Then, until the first deadline, invited groups
announce their active participation to the CESCG organization
in Vienna via mailto:cescg#cg.tuwien.ac.at: groups tell the number
of presentation slots they would like to fill at the seminar (one,
two, three, or even more). Due to the limited number of talks at
a CESCG seminar (up to 24 talks), only one or two slots per
actively participating group can be guaranteed.
After the first deadline, and according to the total of all talk
announcements, the Vienna part of the CESCG organization compiles
a so-called preliminary program, which states which groups can send
how many students for active presentations.
Each student has a responsible
advisor. Until the second deadline, students prepare their CESCG papers
under the supervision of their advisor and submit them for reviewing using
the submission system on the CESCG webpage. After reviewing, CESCG students
incorporate the reviewers' recommendations for improvements into their
papers. It is the responsibility of the student's advisor that this happens
properly, so that the hard work invested by the reviewers is not in vain.
The advisor (and not the student!) then re-submits the improved paper for
final publication. Papers are eventually published in printed form (printed
proceedings), electronic form (on CD-ROM and as web proceedings), and as
presentations directly at the seminar.
The contributions are submitted in some directly printable format for
printed proceedings (preferably PDF, or, if not otherwise possible,
zipped device-independent Postscript) and the paper source (LaTeX). To
ensure a minimum typographic quality of the seminar proceedings, all
submissions have to follow the guidelines for authors available at
http://www.cg.tuwien.ac.at/studentwork/CESCG/guidelines/. A LaTeX2e
class (implementing these guidelines) can be downloaded from this web-
Students are highly encouraged to include additional material in
their submissions. This additional material can be images,
animations, etc., and should be assembled on an HTML page which will
be included in the electronic proceedings on the web and the CD.
Note that only those contributions are included in the seminar
proceedings which conform to the guidelines specified above and
which are submitted in time according to the schedule of the
Participation and Dates
To prepare a successful seminar, it is necessary to coordinate several
groups in different countries. It is obvious that this can only work
if all the participating groups stick to the schedule of the seminar.
The schedule for CESCG 2005 is as follows:
|November 18, 2004
||Call for Participation sent to invited groups.|
Invited groups need to check whether they want
to actively participate in CESCG and if so, how
many students they would like to send.
|December 10, 2004
||Deadline for email-announcements of participation.|
Invited groups announce how many students they
would like to send for active participation with
paper and talk (names and titles not necessarily
known at this time). No more than one (or two)
talks can be guaranteed from the beginning on
due to the increased number of invited groups, but
every group is invited to announce the actual
number of students they would like to send.
|December 17, 2004
||Preliminary Program sent to participants.|
The preliminary program tells which groups send
how many students to the seminar.
|February 4, 2005
||Reviewing Submission Deadline.|
For reviewing purposes, only one version of the paper should be submitted, including names and affiliation (no anonymized version is required this year).
Submissionis should be done via the submission system available on
the CESCG website.
|February 28, 2005
||Reviews sent to authors.|
The authors of prospective CESCG papers receive
constructive recommendations on how to improve
their papers from the IPC reviewers.
|March 11, 2005
||Final Submission Deadline.|
By this day, all contributions, reviews worked in,
must be submitted. Note that this year only a
printable version (PDF or Postscript) of the
contribution must be submitted. However, students
are highly encouraged to provide additional
material in form of images, animations, ...,
assembled on an HTML-page. Again, submission
details will soon be published.
|April 15, 2005
||Final Program will be sent to participants.|
The final program lists all CESCG presentations
with names and titles as well as the date and time
of all talks as well as additional parts of the
program (social program, etc.).
|April 25, 2005
CESCG participants need to register electronically
until this deadline for regular attendance at the
|May 9-11 2005
||CESCG 2005 will take place in Budmerice castle.
Participation in CESCG 2005 is free for attendees who present a paper or supervise a presenter. Participants who just wish to attend the presentations and discussions are of course also kindly invited. A registration fee of Euro 40,- (to be paid via bank transfer) is requested from such participants.
