If you are planning to submit a paper to Computer Graphics Forum, here is some help which will greatly improve your chances of being accepted and seeing your paper appear swiftly.
Where possible, we strongly recommend that you use our LaTeX macros to help you with the layout of both text and biliography. If you cannot do that, please use a form as close to the journal style as possible (though single column is quite acceptable). Pay special attention to the style we use for making references and for listing them. These are common causes of delay while authors make the necessary changes. Papers must be in English.
Please make sure that an image embedded in your paper does not contain transparent pixels (i.e. an alphachannel or a transparent color) because this will lead to problems when the resulting PDF is displayed or printed.
Submit an electronic copy of the paper (in Adobe PDF or Postscript format) as a file attached to an email or through a file that can be accessed by FTP/HTTP transfer. Send your submission to either of the Chief Editors (see CGF Editors). Also send a single printed copy by ordinary mail to the selected Chief Editor.
We use a panel of referees (listed in the journal) and other referees as necessary. We are a genuinely international journal and you should expect your paper to be understandable in any continent.
Papers which are accepted should either be sent as two paper copies or as an emailed LaTeX file (not PC disks). We can take photographic or PostScript images or good quality labelled artwork. We reproduce all diagrams as supplied: lettering must be included and easily legible even if the diagram is reduced to single column size.
All papers which are to be accepted have to classified into one or several categories of the ACM Computing Classification System (ACM CCS, found here).
Permission to use the ACM Computing Classification System has been granted by the ACM. For further information or the full CCS see http://www.acm.org/class.
