Call for Papers and Research Notes

The 27th International Meshing Roundtable (IMR) solicits technical papers and research notes that present original results on meshing, gridding and related technology. We encourage theoretical and novel ideas and algorithms with practical potential as well as technical applications in science and engineering, geometric modeling, computer graphics and visualization in research and industrial settings.

The following is a list of relevant topics:

Topics (Papers and Research Notes)

Paper and Research Notes Submissions

Papers Due: May 30, 2018 Paper due date extended from May 30, 2018. There will be no further extension to this deadline.

Paper submissions are now Open. For instructions, see the paper submission webpage.

Research Notes

In addition to full papers, the 27th IMR also solicits research notes in the form of either short articles or brief abstract-based contributions (NEW FOR THIS EDITION) describing exploratory research, preliminary results, techniques and workflows deemed to be relevant to the field of meshing.

The guidelines for submitting research notes are as follows:

  1. The list of topics and formatting guidelines for research notes is the same as for the full paper.
  2. 2. Research notes must be limited to 2000 words or 5 pages, whichever is shorter including figures, tables, references and appendices. NEW FOR THIS EDITION: A research note could also be submitted as an abstract limited to 250 words. Articles not meeting the formatting guidelines or page/word limit will be rejected.
  3. Research notes will be reviewed by the committee, with a less strict review standard than full technical papers.
  4. Research notes will not be published in the printed proceedings of the International Meshing Roundtable, but will be included in the electronic version of the proceedings, distributed on flashdrives with color figures.
  5. A special session will be dedicated to presentations of research notes. Presenters will have 10 minutes for presentation plus 5 minutes for questions.
  6. 6. Authors may not submit a full paper and a research note on the same topic in the same year. However, a rejected full-paper submission may be recommended to be resubmitted as a research note for the year. Research notes submitted in the form of a short article from a previous year are eligible to be submitted as a full paper the following year.

Research Notes Due: August 8, 2018
For instructions, see the paper submission webpage.

Special Note: For accepted papers and research notes, at least one author must register for the IMR. Participants may be an author of multiple papers and research notes, but may be the presenting author of only one abstract. Each paid IMR registrant will be limited to one presentation (papers or research notes). Not limited to papers and research notes, all authors and presenters are encouraged to also submit posters and/or meshing contest entries.
