SoCG 2008 : 24th Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry
Conference Series : Symposium on Computational Geometry
Call For Papers
We invite submissions of high-quality papers describing original research of theoretical, applied, or experimental nature, on the topics listed above.
Submission of the same (or essentially the same) abstract to SOCG and to another conference with a strict selection procedure and published proceedings is not allowed.
The program committee explicitly encourages the submission of video or multimedia presentations that support submitted papers. Supporting presentations will be automatically considered as a submission to the video/multimedia track, unless the authors request otherwise. Papers and accompanying presentations will be reviewed separately; acceptance or rejection of one will not influence acceptance or rejection of the other.
Final versions of accepted papers will be published by ACM in the symposium proceedings, which will be distributed to symposium participants and will also be available from ACM for purchase or through the digital library. An author of each accepted paper will be expected to give a presentation (roughly, 20 minutes) of the paper during the Symposium.
Authors of a selection of papers from the conference will be invited to submit to a special issue of Discrete and Computational Geometry (for theory papers) or Computational Geometry Theory and Applications (for applications and experiments papers).
Electronic submissions in pdf or postscript are strongly preferred; see the EasyChair SoCG'08 web pages for detailed submission instructions.
If electronic submission is infeasible, please contact the program committee chair.

Papers should be submitted in the form of an extended abstract, which begins with the title of the paper, each author's name, affiliation, and e-mail address, followed by a clear statement of the problem considered, a succinct summary of the results obtained, a discussion of the significance and novelty of the research, including a clear comparison with related work. The remainder of the extended abstract should provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to evaluate the validity, quality, and relevance of the contribution.
The whole extended abstract should be written very carefully, to allow the program committee to clearly understand the results.
Submissions should be typeset in single column format, using 11-point or larger font, with at least 1 inch/2.54 cm margins and single line spacing. Excluding the title page and bibliography, the extended abstract should not exceed 10 pages. Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. The program committee does not promise to read any double-column eight-point submissions. The PC does not promise either to fully read a submission whose length exceeds ten pages.
Appendices of reasonable length (e.g. to present proofs or other additional information, that do not fit in the ten pages) may be included directly in the submitted file; other supporting materials (such as video or multimedia presentation, source code, experimental data...) may be submitted by including a URL in the submission (if infeasible, contact the program committee chair by e-mail).
Appendices and supporting materials will not be regarded as part of the actual submission and will be considered only at the discretion of the program committee.
Authors must electronically submit the title and abstract of their paper by November 21, 2007 (midnight, Honolulu time).
Extended abstracts must be received before the end of December 3, 2007 (Honolulu time).
There will be no extension of deadlines. Late submissions will not be considered.
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by February 14, 2008. Final versions of accepted submissions will be due by March 14, 2008 for inclusion in the proceedings. The final proceedings papers must be formatted in accordance with ACM proceedings guidelines; LaTeX style files will be made available to authors of accepted papers.
