Proceedings of the Eurographics Conference

Abstract : This special issue of Computer Graphics Forum contains the proceedings of the 29th Annual Conference of the Eurographics Association, held in Heraklion, Crete, April 14 - 18, 2008. This is an important transitional year for the EUROGRAPHICS conference. For its 29'th edition, the premium European event for Computer Graphics changed dates, moving from a cycle of submission in February and a conference in early September, to a cycle with submissions in late September and a conference in April. The first step of the full papers process was to put together our International Programme Committee (IPC) of 49 members, with the help of our two advisory board members, Fredo Durand and Eugene Fiume. After much preparation, we received 300 eligible full-paper submissions on September 26th, 2007. During the paper sort we distributed the papers for review to the IPC members using the Graz Submission and Review Managment (SRM) System, with help from our advisory board. Each committee member had to review between 10 and 14 papers as primary or secondary reviewer. They also had to find 3 additional tertiary reviewers for each paper. All 300 submissions had at least 5 full reviews (with some getting up to 7 reviews), for a total of over 1550 reviews. The IPC met at the Hotel Novotel Arenas in Nice on Nov. 16-17th, 2007. The paper submissions and their reviews were discussed extensively by IPC members, and great care was taken to treat all submissions equally and fairly. The IPC decided to accept 58 papers (of which some conditionally) to be presented at the conference, and an additional 20 were recommended for "fast resubmission" to the Computer Graphics Forum journal. These numbers show that the quality of the submissions was very high, and that the selection process imposed very high standards. After a short "second cycle" for the conditionally accepted papers, we finalized the program in early January 2008, with 58 full papers to be presented. The acceptance rate was thus 19.3%, maintaining the high competitive standards of the conference. We would like to thank some of the people who made this possible. First and foremost, all the members of the IPC who dedicated an enormous amount of their time to reviewing, finding tertiaries, coming to the meeting at their own expense and "sheparding" the conditionally accepted papers. All the tertiary reviewers, who also spent a significant amount of time providing high-quality and thoughtful reviews. All the authors of all submitted papers, to whom this entire process belongs. Catherine Martin of INRIA who organised all the administrative part of the IPC meeting and helped with the overall process, paying attention to every detail and ensuring that everything worked out well. René Berndt and Stefanie Behnke at the Graz University of Technology whose outstanding support with the SRM and unfailing availability and reponsiveness was the cornerstone to the success of the entire process. Last but not least, the two members of our advisory board, Eugene Fiume and Fredo Durand, whose advice and help made the process much better.We would also like to thank INRIA for funding the IPC meeting. You have before you the full paper proceedings for EUROGRAPHICS 2008.We believe that the papers presented here reflect the best of graphics research in Europe and internationally, and we hope you will find them interesting and inspiring for your future research.
