Call for Papers

Graphics Interface has a long legacy of attracting high-quality papers on human-computer interaction, interactive systems, computer graphics, and visualization. The conference brings together researchers from across the globe to discuss their recent advances in these fields.

We want you! GI 2022 invites submissions covering all aspects of HCI, graphics, and visualization. Research at the intersections of these areas, as well as intersections with computer vision, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are also encouraged. All paper submissions are rigorously peer reviewed by at least four reviewers.

All accepted GI papers will be indexed in the ACM Digital Library and will be open access in the Graphics Interface archive. The Michael A. J. Sweeney Award will be awarded at the conference to the best student papers in computer graphics and HCI. Additionally, authors of top papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions to the journals IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG) and Computers & Graphics.


Hybrid conference

GI 2022 will be a hybrid conference. Attendees/presenters have the option of attending/presenting remotely or in person. More details about the hybrid format will be available soon on this website.


Paper Deadline #1: 17 December 2021, 11:59 pm EST

Author Notification for Deadline #1: 14 January 2022 17 January 2022

Paper Deadline #2: 25 March 2022, 11:59 pm EST

Author Notification for Deadline #2: 15 April 2022 16 April 2022

Submitting to either of the deadlines is exactly equivalent. The review process will be the same for each. The only differences are the submission deadline and notification dates. All accepted papers will be presented at the GI 2022 conference in May 2022. The incentive to submit to an earlier deadline is earlier author notification. Papers rejected from an earlier deadline are welcome to submit significantly revised versions of their paper for the later deadline.

Paper Submission Information

Graphics Interface 2022 will use OpenReview. This system allows for increased transparency and accountability during the peer review process.

GI 2022 submissions will continue to be double-blind: authors will not know reviewers’ identities, and reviewers will not know authors’ identities. After the deadline, each paper will become available publicly and anonymously, and time-stamped accordingly. This eliminates the need to post submissions simultaneously on ArXiv, and consequently authors are prohibited from de-anonymizing their papers by posting them on ArXiv or elsewhere.

After the review period, all reviewers’ scores and comments will be simultaneously revealed publicly and anonymously for each submission. We will not allow anonymous public comments from non-reviewers. Immediately upon decision of acceptance/rejection or withdrawal, the author identities of each accepted submission will be revealed. Authors of rejected papers may decide to withdraw their submission if they do not wish to keep a de-anonymized and time-stamped public record of their submission.

Submissions should use the format shown in the conference template and submitted at:
