[DMANET] CG Week Multimedia Exposition - Final Call for Submissions

The deadline is this Friday!


Video and multimedia contributions are sought for the 24th Multimedia
Exposition in Computational Geometry, a part of CG Week 2015. This
event showcases the use of visualization in computational geometry
for exposition and education, for visual exploration of geometry in
research, and as an interface and a debugging tool in software
development. Algorithm animations, visual explanations of structural
theorems, descriptions of applications of computational geometry,
demonstrations of software systems, and games that illustrate
concepts from computational geometry are all appropriate. There are
no limitations on creativity, anything that leverages the
possibilities of multimedia to enlighten and entertain the viewer
while learning about computational geometry will do. This includes
rendered animation, films with narrators and/or actors, and
interactive stories.

We seek submissions of high quality, judged by how well they exploit
the creative possibilities of their respective formats. That is, a
screencast of static slides with some voice-over will hardly do.


For videos, a length of three to five minutes is usually ideal; ten
minutes is the upper limit. For the final version, we require video
in 720P or better, using H.264. The embedded audio stream should be
AAC of at least 128kBit/s. Telephone-sounding audio (limited
frequency range, noise) or live rooms, as often recorded with cheap
headsets, must be avoided, as well as speakers with too heavy accent.

There are no general guidelines for other content. Interactive
applications (e.g., HTML5, Flash, AIR, Java, etc.) should have a
"demo" mode where the algorithm runs on its own. They should be
submitted as a distributable package.

To conserve resources, please try to keep your submission at a
reasonable size. The program committee may recode the submission at a
lower quality to reduce the space requirements. Authors are free to
post higher quality versions on their own web sites, and we will
include links in the electronic proceedings to their version, in
addition to the official version archived on

It is strongly encouraged to contact the PC well in advance
to 1) discuss the quality of a video submission (based on sample
files) or 2) to present your non-video idea and how it could be
reviewed, presented, and distributed.


Submissions should be deposited online where they are accessible
through the web or via FTP. A video submission should play
trouble-free on programs like VLC Media Player. For ease of sharing
and viewing, we encourage (but do not require) that each video
submission be uploaded to YouTube (not necessarly publicly visible),
and that the corresponding URL be included with the submission.

Each submission should include a three-page description of the
material shown in the presentation, and where applicable, the
techniques used in the implementation. This three-page description
must be formatted according to the guidelines for the conference
proceedings, using the LIPIcs format. LIPIcs typesetting instructions
can be found at and
the lipics.cls LaTeX style file at

Send a mail to the committee chair, Wolfgang Mulzer
( by February 13, 2015, 23:59 (UTC-12), with
the following information:
- the names and institutions of the authors
- the email address of the corresponding author
- instructions for downloading the submission
- if available: the link to the YouTube video
- and the PDF abstract.

We explicitly encourage video/multimedia submissions that support
papers submitted to the Symposium on Computational Geometry.
However, submitted papers and associated video/multimedia
submissions will be treated entirely separately by the respective
committees: acceptance or rejection of one will not influence
acceptance or rejection of the other. Authors will be notified of
acceptance or rejection, and given reviewers' comments, by March 09,
2015. For each accepted submission, the final version of the 3-page
textual description will be due by March 23, 2015 for inclusion in
the proceedings. Final versions of accepted video/multimedia
presentations will be due April 30, 2015.
