The maximum video length is 20 mins for full, vision, and competition papers; 10 mins for short and 5 mins for demo papers. There is no poster presentation at CoG 2020.

As of April 16, as with other major conferences in the same period, CoG 2020 will be going virtual. Platforms with high accessibility for our participants will be used. Registration fees will be reduced accordingly. More information regarding this will be made available on the CoG 2020 website soon.

As of March 16, although the pace of submissions looks good, —— to slightly give more room to our colleagues who might have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic situation —— the deadlines for regular papers and auxiliary papers have been extended to March 30 and May 22, respectively. Any further extension cannot be expected. Stay safe.

As of March 14, 2020, our provisional contingency plan against COVID-19 is as follows: One author per accepted paper/industry talk/tutorial would register to the conference as usual. However, they would be allowed to present their talk via remote live streaming or have a pre-recorded-video played at the venue.

As of March 2, we have no plan to extend any deadlines. The one approaching is March 23, 2020 for Regular Papers (Full Technical Papers). Look forward to receiving your submission(s).

As of Feb 24, 2020, as with other events in Japan during the same period, CoG 2020 will be held as planned. We will continue closely monitoring the situation on COVID-19 as well as the status of other major conferences to be held in Japan during spring and summer, and keep you updated.
