Call for Contributions

We cordially invite researchers and educators to submit their recent results to our Conference!

Few introductory words about the process can be helpful for prospective authors. First step is the submission of Extended Abstracts for the review. After acceptance, authors can prepare and submit their final scientific Contributions, that is, Full Papers or/and Posters, for the publication in Proceedings, with ISBN. Only Extended Abstracts will be reviewed. Reviewing is not blind. Submission of Posters is encouraged in this edition, we prepared a graphic template also for them, and three Plenary Poster Sessions are scheduled for their presentation.

More info about scientific Contributions can be found in the following list of topics and subtopics below.

Even few words about the Submissions can be spent here:
– Extended Abstracts will be submitted via EasyChair.
– Final Contributions, that is, Full Papers and Posters, will be submitted via email to icgg2018@polimi.it.

in order to publish on the Conference Proceedings, for each final contribution, be it a Full Paper or a Poster, the ICGG2018-Copyright Transfer Form is required, filled and signed in.

More info about the submission process can be found at the submission webpage.

Topics/scope

As mentioned in the Homepage, the spectrum of the Conference ranges from theoretical research to application, including education, in several fields of art, science, technique. The ICGG 2018 will mainly focus on the following topics and subtopics:

Theoretical Graphics and Geometry

Besides the topics listed above, the conference is open for any contributions related to Geometry and Graphics.

In this edition, together with the consolidated topics and subtopics, Graphic Simulation in Urban and Territorial Studies, and Aspects of Geometry and Graphics in Life Sciences have been proposed, as subtopics of Applied Geometry and Graphics, as well as MOOCs and Emerging Classics as a subtopic of Graphics Education. Coherently with the dedication, inspired by the links between retrospects and prospects in our field, Geometry and Graphics in History has also been included as a new Topic with subtopics in this edition.

As already said before, we cordially invite researchers and educators to present their recent results and experiences at our Conference!

Contributions

Eearly contributions: extended abstracts

Prospective authors are invited to submit Extended Abstracts related to the topics listed above. Since a limited number of lectures can be scheduled, the submitted abstracts will be selected through a peer-review process. An Extended Abstract must be a maximum of 2 pages with 300 to 500 words including figures. The approved abstracts will be published on the Printed Abstract Proceedings. Please, do not exceed the two pages, in this case additional costs might be charged to the authors.
Although succinct, an Extended Abstract is a relevant document, since on its approval depends your participation in the conference as a speaker and the publication of your contribution in the Conference Proceedings. Furthermore, since your Extended Abstract will be printed in the Printed Abstract Proceedings, prepare it according to the given formatting instructions. Instructions can be found, and templates can be downloaded at the submission page.
In order to have your Extended Abstract Published in the Proceedings, remember that:

deadline for the submission of the Extended Abstracts is January 15, 2018

Deadlines for the payment of the Conference Fee, are May 7, 2018 (Early Registration) or June 15, 2018 (Registration)

Late registration is not valid for the publication in the Conference Proceedings.

Call for Contributions

Final contrubutions: full papers and posters, and their presentation

After the approval of the Extended Abstracts, the authors can prepare their final contributions, either Full Papers or Posters, which must be original and unpublished. Final contributions will be consistent with the submitted Extended Abstracts, and will take into account relevant reviewer’s remarks, if any.
Therefore, the Final Contributions can be developed as:

Camera-ready Full Papers
A Full Paper is the standard scientific product of a Conference. ICGG 2018 Full Paper will consist of a written essay, 6 to 12 pages long, including figures. Full Papers will be formatted as A4 size documents, according to the given formatting instructions and templates. Instructions and templates can be found at the submission page.

Camera-ready Posters
Submissions of Posters are also encouraged in our Conference, as effective media to show at a glance ideas and activities, as well as ‘breaking news’ concerning research and educational experiences under development, then three Plenary Posters Sessions are scheduled. A Poster will be formatted in one board, in the size A0, according to the given formatting instructions and templates. Instructions and templates can be found at the submission page.

In order to publish on the Conference Proceedings, for each Final Contribution, be it a Full Paper or a Poster, the ICGG2018-Copyright Transfer Form is required, filled and signed in.

Deadline for the submission of the Final Contributions (either Full Papers or Posters) is May 14, 2018.

Deadlines for the payment of the Conference Fee, are May 7, 2018 (Early Registration) or June 15 2018 (Registration).

Late registration is not valid for the publication in the Conference Proceedings.

All the Final Contributions will be presented by the authors at the Conference, according to the final program:

full papers will be presented in Lectures scheduled in the Technical Sessions, lasting 20 minutes each, including 15 minutes for the speech and 5 more minutes for question time.

Posters will be presented in Short Lectures in Plenary Sessions, lasting about 2 minutes each, at the end of the presentations 5 minutes will be deserved for short questions to the authors.

Questions to the authors could be also asked during the Plenary TS Reports, the round tables leaded by the Session Chairs at the end of each day.

All the final contributions, that is Full Papers and Posters, will be included in the Full proceedings on USB key, with ISBN.

Elected papers will be invited to submit to the Journal for Geometry and Graphics (JGG).

Authors have to present their contributions in person, presentations via internet or video will not be admitted.

Before presenting their contribution, authors must be in line with the payment, in absence of payment presentations will be canceled from the program and the certificate of attendance can not be issued.
