    Anonymity Guidelines

    • Remove author and institutional information from the author list on the title page.
    • Remove author information from all paper headers.
    • Remove clues from the main text that would directly identify any of the authors.
    • Your own published work that appears on mainstream (including online) and are available for the reviewer must be cited in the third person, in a manner that is not traceable to the identity of the authors. For example: "In [3], Mountain and River have proposed ..." is acceptable, whereas "In [3], we have proposed ..." is not, when reference [3] is listed such as "IEEE Trans. PAMI, 6(6):721-741, November 1984".
    • Anonymize your PDF file. Note that PDF creator programs may accidentally leave Author information in the file header.
    • Failure to comply with the above requirements will result in automatic rejection of the paper.


    Authors are required to submit anonymous fully formatted papers, with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for final publication. Please use the ACM SIGGRAPH paper preparation guidelines

    Paper Length

    The maximum length for a full paper submission is 10 pages. The maximum length for a short paper submission is 4 pages.

    Supplementary Materials

    Submissions may be optionally accompanied by additional materials such as images, videos, or electronic documents. These materials do not form a part of the official submission and will be viewed only at the discretion of the reviewers. All content should be in a portable format that is unlikely to require the user to download additional programs (for example, PDF or HTML for documents, JPEG for images, and QuickTime or MPEG for video). Additional materials should not exceed a total of 25MB. To the extent possible, accepted papers should stand on their own, with the MPEGs providing supplementary information or confirmation of results. However it is appropriate to refer to the video footages in the paper.

    Poster submission:

    All PDF poster submissions should be submitted via email to vrst2014posters@gmail.com by the deadline. Due to GMail’s limits, each email message must be less than 25MB. If this is not sufficient for your submission or supplemental materials, you may send your submission in parts as attachments to several emails. If you do this, please make sure that you include appropriate details to allow the emails to be identified as the same submission. For supplemental materials, links to external websites are also allowable.
