Camera-ready papers due:  Sunday, June 22

All camera-ready submissions must be uploaded via both the conference PCS Online Submission System and the IEEE VGTC RT08 submission site:


by Sunday, June 22, 2008.

Although the IEEE site mentions a single color page per paper, we are going to relax this requirement.  However, please try to group color figures in your camera-ready version as much as possible.

The IEEE site also mentions July 1, 2008 as the camera-ready submission deadline.  However, we require that all camera-ready papers are received by June 22nd; July 1st is an absolute final deadline for camera ready papers.
