Abstract - no HTML tags, please.

We STRONGLY recommend to following "How to Get your Paper Accepted" hints

Abstracts will be published in the Abstract proceedings and conference attendees will select presentations/sessions according to them. They will have on-line papers available for details as well. The abstracts and online full-text papers will be available on conference WEB pages before and during the conference for the presenting authors.

How to prepare your paper (excerpt from what is usually requested by reviewers):

  • Describe the State of the Art (SoA) - your paper should be understandable without referring only to references in principal issues. A reader has to understand recent works and your method/approach and then he/she can go to the referenced resources for details.
  • Describe your theory /experiments step by step and show how it can be repeated and verified.
  • Include RESULTS and comparisons with competing approaches/methods, and evaluate and compare them with your results.
  • Include relevant references only and check the online relevant repositories for the most recent relevant papers as well. Reviewers will search for relevant references all available resources. If relevant references are not covered in your SoA, the paper will probably gain a lower evaluation or might be rejected.
  • Self-citation should be less 15%.
  • It is recommended to cite papers published in WSCG proceedings and in the Journal of WSCG (see WSCG digital repository at ) as recent authors usually act as reviewers :-) 

Reviewers usually search digital libraries first using as <keywords> site:<digital repository>
Check the following sites: Eurographics Digital Library,, IEEE Digital Library, ACM Digital Library,
WSCG Digital Repository  and also sites with subscription:, (ISI Thompson),, etc.

Match the required paper format as close as possible - reviewers evaluate that as well.

In your anonymous version - number the LINES  and pages!  Reviewers need that to comment on your paper - you will help them and they will be more happy to help you. 

In your affiliated version - do NOT number pages nor the lines, pagination will be inserted later on by editors.
We pre-process the affiliated version of your paper to detect problems with the PDF - it will help us to speed up the final version processing. 

Copyright Transfer Form - please, note that a Copyright Transfer Form (CTF) filled in, signed and uploaded is a part of the submission. Without it the paper cannot be sent for a review. 

Upload signed CTF as Additional file-2 in the PDF format to WEB server. The original CTF is needed for legal purposes and you will sign it at the registration desk.

Authors registration - register your personal details as soon as possible - we will keep you updated with information related to this event. Note that your e-mail address is used for identification/communication - avoid aliases etc.
ALL AUTHORS have to be pre-registered with the WSCG server - there is a cross-check made after submission


Paper registration and upload - register your paper and the paper title, list of authors, their e-mails and abstract etc. in advance. Do NOT make double registrations of the same paper!

  • Upload an abstract of your paper in plain ASCII (TXT) [only ENGLISH characters - use NOTEPAD for copying] format (NO HTML or TEX TAGS, no MSWord text copying) - approx. up to 250 words. The uploaded abstract will be published in the Abstracts Proceedings.
