[DMANET] Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum 2021 -- 2nd Call for Submissions

*Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum 2021Second Call for
SubmissionsOnline (hosted by University at Buffalo**), June 7-11, 2021*

The 37th Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG) will be held virtually
June 7-11, 2021 (originally scheduled in Buffalo, USA). It brings together
the global community of researchers who work on a large variety of aspects
that combine geometry, algorithms and applications. To allow a broad
audience to actively participate in the community's major scientific event,
this year SoCG will again be accompanied by a series of satellite events,
which together constitute "CG Week 2021". See for details.

One of these satellite events will be the "Computational Geometry: Young
Researchers Forum" (CG:YRF), which is aimed at current and recent students.
The active involvement by students and recent graduates in research,
discussions, and social events has been longstanding tradition in the CG
community. Participation in a top-level event such as SoCG can be
educating, motivating, and useful for networking, both with other students
and with more senior scientists.

The YRF presents young researchers (defined as not having received a formal
doctorate before January 1, 2019) an opportunity to present their work (in
progress as well as finished results) to the CG community in a friendly,
open setting. Just like in the main event, presentations will be given in
the form of talks. A pre-screening (but no formal review process) will
ensure appropriate quality control.

Due to COVID-19, it has been decided that the entire CG Week 2021
(including YRF) will be online-only. Specific details about the format will
be announced later.

Submission guidelines:


- The idea of the event is for young researchers to present new and ongoing
work. Therefore, the work should not have appeared in print in a formally
reviewed proceedings volume or journal by the time of submission deadline,
and at least one author must be a young researcher.

- Topics must fit into the general context of SoCG, as described in the
call for SoCG submissions.

- Submissions must be formatted in accordance with the LIPIcs proceedings
guidelines (
and not exceed 80 lines, excluding front matter, references. To ensure an
accurate line counting, authors must use the LaTeX class file
socg-lipics-v2019, which is a wrapper around the standard class (available
Authors should refrain from putting excessive amounts of texts in parts in
which lines are not counted automatically.

- Submissions can contain an appendix of arbitrary length to provide
further details for the screening process, but the main body of the text
should be understandable without reading the appendix. Appendices will also
not be contained in the booklet (see below).

- The EasyChair submission link is

- Accepted abstracts will be compiled in a booklet of abstracts that will
be distributed among the participants; this should not be considered a
formal publication. In particular, participants are encouraged to submit
(an extended version of) their presented work to a conference with formal
proceedings and/or to a journal. Booklets of abstracts from previous years'
YRF are available here:

- The work must be presented at CG:YRF by an author who is a young
researcher. Otherwise, it will be removed from the program.

We will employ a two-phase screening process. After the first review phase,
there will be a notification of either rejection (if the result is clearly
out of scope, or technically incorrect), or conditional acceptance,
accompanied with a description of required changes to be made (either with
respect to content or format). In the second phase, we will check whether
the changes have been implemented satisfactorily. The screening process is
intended to ensure the technical quality of the presented work. Submissions
that are not well-written risk rejection, irrespective of correctness.
Authors are strongly encouraged to have their submissions proofread by
their advisor or another experienced scientist.

Important dates (deadlines are 23:59 Anywhere on Earth):


- March 14, 2021: Deadline for submissions

- April 7, 2021: Notification of conditional acceptance

- April 14, 2021: Deadline for revisions

- April 24, 2021: Notification of acceptance
