Paper Formatting Guidelines

GraphiCon'2008 Paper Formatting Instructions

Formatting guidelines for GraphiCon'2008 technical papers conceptually follow those of ACM SIGGRAPH. Although we are less strict in requiring exact formatting style, we ask authors to follow these guidelines as much as possible. Below you will find some useful quotations and sample documents.

MS Word Sample Document - authors may use it as a starting point for your paper.
PDF Sample Document - information regarding the formatting guidelines.

You may also find many useful information as well as LaTeX templates at ACM SIGGRAPH Authors Instructions page.

We invite authors to submit their papers for review in PDF format (.pdf).  PostScript (.ps) and MS Word (.doc) are also possible, though authors are advised to prefer PDF format if possible.

Important: GraphiCon'2008 is running a blind review process. In preparing your manuscript, do not include any information which could reveal your identity, or that of your co-authors. The title section of your manuscript should not contain any author names, email addresses, or affiliation status. If you do include any author names on the title page, your submission will be automatically rejected. In the body of your submission, you should eliminate all direct references to your own previous work. That is, avoid phrases such as "this contribution generalizes our results for XYZ". Also, please do not disproportionately cite your own previous work. In other words, make your submission as anonymous as possible. We need your cooperation in our effort to maintain a fair, blind reviewing process - and to consider all submissions equally. In case your submission is accepted, you'll be asked to provide a final version of your paper with all the information about authors, etc.
