The 29th International Meshing Roundtable (IMR) is soliciting full papers and video presentations. Research abstract and poster submissions will return in the 30th IMR. 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 video on the same topic in the same year. However, they may, for example, submit a video 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.
