This year, the DSC Europe 2019 VR conference organization team is pleased to introduce the NEW Industrial session!

For scientific papers, DSC 2019 has a two-phases review process. In the first phase submitted abstracts are evaluated and selected for paper submission or poster presentation. In the second phase submitted papers are reviewed. For industrial papers, DSC 2019 has a one-phase review process. Submitted abstracts are evaluated and selected for paper presentation in a parallel industrial session.

The Review Process page describes this more precisely.

Abstract submission

To submit an abstract you first need to create an account on-line on our conference management system (www.conftool.com/dsc2019/). The submission form is then available under « Your submissions ».

Note: Conftool website will be opened on December 5th 2018

The abstract (plain text) should not exceed 1000 words in length (excluding title and affiliations). Authors’ contact details (full address and email of all the contributing authors) and affiliations must be entered in the dedicated fields of the submission form. Figures with captions and bibliographic references can be uploaded with the abstract (title and text only) in a single .pdf file. No author information should be included in the .pdf file. The deadline to upload the abstract is December 31th, 2018.

The abstract must properly address the following points:

  • Introduction: background and motivation with references to similar/previous works
  • Research question: description of working hypotheses for non-specialized audience
  • Methodology: description of the experimental setup and procedure
  • Results and discussion: when possible, findings must be supported by proper statistical tests
  • Conclusions/implications: (expected) impact and value of the work for the scientific and/or industrial community.

IMPORTANT: Abstracts not meeting these requirements will not be accepted.

PAPER submission

If your abstract has been accepted for PAPER submission, please follow these step-by-step instructions to upload the paper. Formatting instructions are available on the paper templates below. The deadline to upload the paper is April 15th, 2019.

  1. Login to our conference management system (www.conftool.com/dsc2019/) with the account previously created for abstract submission. You will access your personal « Overview » page.
  2. Click on « Your Submissions ». You will access your already submitted contributions.
  3. Click on « Copy as New Contribution », on the right of the contribution you intend to submit as paper. Contribution info like ID, title, authors list and affiliations will be copied to a new contribution.

NOTE: The main difference between full and short papers is in the paper length and not in the importance or impact of the contributions. Therefore, the work described in long or short papers differ in extent, but not in quality. Short papers can cover preliminary studies, prototype applications, or initial implementations. Full papers are suitable for completed scientific studies and reviews.
