The virtual IMR conference in 2021 requires a change in our format, instead of a poster session and a separate Research Abstracts sessions, the organizing committee have decided to combine them into a single “video contest”. Similar to the previous poster sessions, video topics include meshing algorithms, mesh modeling, geometry processing, mesh visualization, and mesh adaptation for numerical simulations. Videos are typically of these types:

Research videos

Research videos illustrate state-of-the-art techniques. Videos of preliminary results that spur dialogue are encouraged. Videos that augment papers, short courses, and invited talks are also encouraged. For example, a video might elaborate on a particular technical aspect of a paper or describe the research of other people on the same project.

Technical videos

Technical videos may present an output mesh that has extraordinary complexity, size, or quality. The videos may also feature a process that is impressive, e.g., in terms of its generality, run time, memory use, or automation. Videos in this category should contain significant technical details, not just pictures. The model may be based on the Meshing Contest, but this is not required.

Visual videos

Visual videos emphasize striking visuals with few research or technical details.

Video Session

Participants of the video contest will submit up to a five-minute long video and (optionally) a still image about the selected topic. Attendees of the IMR will vote on the videos. Two awards will be given: one award is for the top Research/Technical Video, and the second award for the best visual image that is known as the "Meshing Maestro" Award. To participate in the video contest session, one must register and attend the conference.

Call for Videos

To propose a video, submit a one-paragraph abstract describing the video topic and content. Be sure to consider why it would be interesting to IMR attendees. Abstracts are limited to 100 words. Prepare a pdf file of your abstract using the same template as papers. For additional information on submitting your video abstract and to download the template visit the Paper Submission webpage.

Video proposals will be reviewed by the IMR organizing committee for acceptance. Authors of accepted proposals must submit final electronic versions of the abstract (using the provided template), (optionally) one striking image related to the video (JPG), and the video itself. The abstract will appear in the printed program. The abstract, the image, and poster will be in the conference digital media and the IMR website. At least one of the video authors must attend the IMR.

The video along the accompanying image must be submitted by May 28, 2021.

Note: This format is only for the 2021 IMR. In future physical conferences we will return to the “Research Abstracts” and “Poster Session” format.

Submission Details

Paper submissions will be open in mid-January. For requirements and submission instructions, visit Video Submission webpage.
