Awards

Best Paper Award

Following tradition, three best paper awards will be given at SGP 2018, based on the review scores, quality of the presentation and the contribution of the work. 

Software Award

To encourage the distribution of high quality software in geometry processing, since 2011 an annual award has been given for freely available software related to or useful for geometry processing. A list of recipients from previous years can be found at:
http://awards.geometryprocessing.org/

Eligibility.The nomination should include a description of the software and its functionality as well as a justification why and to what extend the Geometry Processing community benefits from this software. Links to the code and additional material
should also be included if possible. Every software project is eligible as long as:

  • it can be counted as a Geometry Processing contribution
  • it is available for free to academic researchers in the field (i.e. for non-commercial use)

Procedure. Please send nominations and applications for the software award to chairs-sgp2018 (at) eg.org. All members of the Geometry Processing community can nominate their favorite software (including possibly their own) by writing an email to the SGP conference chairs with a few words describing the software and why it is worthy of the award. The chairs will collect the nominations and will decide on the winner following the guidelines described above.

Please send nominations and applications for the software award until 12 June 2018 to chairs-sgp2018 (at) eg.org.

SGP Dataset Award

The main goal of this award is to highlight the importance of high-quality datasets and benchmarks to the advancement of the Geometry Processing community and to recognize the suppliers of such datasets. Similar to the software award, the data award will provide recognition of the effort and time put into preparing an important tool and stimulus for research.

We encourage submissions that initiate novel research directions by asking difficult questions, either in a form of a benchmark, or possibly by highlighting challenges previously ignored by the community. This way, researchers in Geometry Processing will hopefully become aware of both problems that are not addressed by existing algorithms and new applications in other domains. At the same time, we hope to acknowledge the impact of existing and established datasets that have helped to advance the field of Geometry Processing.

Eligibility. The dataset must be freely available (i.e., must come at no cost), and must be covered by a license allowing free academic use to be eligible for the award. We will also allow datasets that might have been obtained by collecting from different sources, rather than created from scratch (such as the Princeton Shape Benchmark), especially in the case where such datasets come with a novel challenge or problem for Geometry Processing. However, we will give preference to original datasets that have been created directly by their providers. Of course, the nominees should be relevant to the Geometry Processing community, and therefore the datasets must have some “geometric” flavor. However, another goal behind this award is to expand our understanding of what geometric datasets might entail, and therefore, we will also consider datasets that have not traditionally been used in the SGP community (for example, volumetric data, point cloud samplings of unusual objects, etc.)

Procedure. Please send nominations and applications for the dataset award to chairs-sgp2018 (at) eg.org. All members of the Geometry Processing community can nominate their favorite dataset (including possibly their own) for the data award by writing an email to the SGP conference chairs with a few words describing the dataset and why it is worthy of the award. The chairs will collect the nominations and will decide on the winner following the guidelines described above.

Please send nominations and applications for the dataset award until 12 June 2018.

Replicability Stamp

SGP provides papers with the replicability stamp to recognise the effort of researchers who, in addition to publishing their paper at SGP 2018, provide a complete open-source implementation of their algorithm. The offer to participate, and exact details, will be sent with the acceptance letter. The deadline for submission would be close to that of the camera ready version

For more information on the replicability stamp, eligibility and application process please check http://www.replicabilitystamp.org/.
