The 28th International Meshing Roundtable solicits both full papers and research abstracts, along with posters and meshing contest submissions. The lists of topics for full papers and research abstracts are the same. The list of topics can be found on the Call for Papers webpage. As a rule, authors should not submit a full paper and a research abstract on the same topic in the same year. However, they may, for example, submit a research abstract in one year and submit a full paper the following year on the same topic.
The International Meshing Roundtable utilizes a two-phased paper review process. Papers may either be accepted with or without revisions. For most cases where “accepted with revision” has been indicated by the first review, specific modifications will be requested prior to a final review and acceptance.
Please follow formatting and submitting instructions for the appropriate submission type. Please read the instructions in their entirety.

Submission Details

Specific formatting, submission and other requirements can be found by clicking each submission type.

Special Note: The same template should be used for all submission types. Either LaTeX or Microsoft Word can be used while preparing your submission. To download the templates click Templates-IMR, both LaTeX and Word template files are included.

Authors must use these templates for all submissions while strictly following the guidelines provided above for each submission type.

Full papers must have original and significant contribution in order to be accepted. All papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed by reviewers selected by the program committee. Accepted papers will be published and will also be provided to conference attendees on a flash drive and available on the IMR website. The proceedings are printed in color. Each accepted paper will be given a 20 minute slot for presentation plus 5 minutes for questions. At least one of the authors must register and attend the conference for a paper to be included in the proceedings.

Final full papers must be submitted using the template accessible on this page. Final papers will not be accepted in any other format.

Formating Requirements

A full paper are limited to 18 pages in length, including figures, tables, references and appendices.

Submission Requirements

Initial paper submission: both a PDF and the source files used to generate the PDF (either Word or Latex files) are required for the initial submission.

Review Process

The review process this year will be double blind. Please follow these guidelines:

1. Do not include author names or affiliations anywhere in the manuscript, or in any Supplementary Information files (or in any file names).

2. Do not include any author names in the Acknowledgments section in the manuscript on submission (though please do include information about funding). Author names can be added to the Acknowledgments section after completion of the peer-review process.

3.Do not include work in the reference list that has not yet been accepted for publication.

4. When referring to your own work within the paper, avoid using terminology that might reveal your identity, e.g. avoid phrases such as we have previously shown [citation].

Final Camera-Ready Submission

Research Abstracts are extended abstracts not exceeding a single A4 page (single spaced) describing new ideas, exploratory research, preliminary results, corrections or updates to previously published research in the field of meshing. These research abstracts will be reviewed by the IMR committee upon submission. Unlike full papers, these abstracts will not be part of the conference proceedings and camera-ready submissions are not necessary. Talks on the research abstracts will be presented at the conference. These abstracts will also be published on the IMR website and will be included in the registration material. Each research abstract will be given a 10 minute slot for presentation followed by 5 minutes for Q&A.

Formating Requirements

A research abstract should not exceed a single A4 page (single spaced) using the template.

Final research abstracts must be submitted using the template accessible on this page and will not be accepted in any other format.
