Call for Papers


GraphiCon is the leading international conference on Computer Graphics and Vision in Russia, held each year since 1991. It was held in Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Nyzhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Vladivostok, Rostov-On-Don. Earlier conference proceedings are available at the website of GraphiCon scientific society.

GraphiCon'2018 will be held in Tomsk in the Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) and Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR).

Authors are invited to submit their works, not published before, on key topics of the conference. All the papers submitted will be reviewed thoroughly and allowed to be updated according to the reviews. Papers can be submitted either in Russian or in English. 

Deadline for submissions: May 15, 2018, inclusive.

All accepted works will be included in the proceedings of the conference "Graphicon", indexed in the RSCI. The best works will be published in the electronic journal Scientific Visualization (indexed in Scopus, HAK, RSCI), Light & Engineering (Scopus, Web of Science, HAK, RSCI), the journal Programming and Computer Software (Scopus, Web of Science, HAK, RSCI), the journal "Bulletin of the Tomsk Polytechnic University. Geo Assets Engineering" (Scopus, HAK, RSCI).

The conference includes a school-seminar for young scientists, for which students and post-graduate students are invited to submit short papers (up to 4 pages). Accepted papers will be presented at the conference as poster presentations and published in the proceedings of the conference "Graphicon" (RSCI). All accepted works will participate in the competition, the best works will be published in the journal "Siberian Journal of Science" (Special Issue). The journal is indexed in the HAK, RSCI.

The conference also includes Presentation of State-Of-The-Art Computer Graphics, Computer Vision and Virtual Reality Technologies and Applications of various IT-companies and industrial enterprises.
