Preparing and submitting your camera-ready copy for GI 2006

(Go to formatting details.)


Note that these instructions are for final submission of accepted papers. The previous instructions on how to prepare a paper for review are here.

The Graphics Interface proceedings are printed directly from PDF files. The result is a high-quality printed proceedings and easier access to papers for everyone, since the electronic versions of the papers are also used for electronic archival and dissemination. However, a little extra work will be required from you, the authors---hopefully not too much, but read the following instructions carefully. Some of the following is not so much instructions as information to help you generate the best possible electronic submission.

Please note that we ask you to upload your paper twice, due to the different systems used by the associate editors and the production staff.

For each accepted full paper, we require:

By 19 March 2006:

  • A PDF version of your paper uploaded to the PCS system, for a final check by the conference committee.
  • Note that on the final submission form in the PCS system, you must enter a short summary of the revisions made to your paper. In this text box, please indicate how you have addressed each of the main concerns identified in the meta-review.

How to prepare your paper

IMPORTANT: GI 2006 will use a different set of macros and templates than was used in the original submission of papers. The new macros and templates are more compact and allow for more content per paper.

The new formatting guidelines are here, including macros for LaTeX and templates for Microsoft Word.

A page on how to prepare the PDF for optimal production is here.
NOTE that your PDF document must embed all fonts that it uses. For latex and MS Word instructions on how to create a PDF document with embedded fonts, please see this page. For pdflatex users, for instructions on how to configure your system to use embedded fonts, see the following document. If you can not configure your system to use embedded fonts with pdflatex, you will have to use LaTeX and follow the instructions for latex
