The Fast Forward session will take place at 6:00 PM on Monday, April, 24th, 2017. At least one author of each paper will be presenting a 35 second preview of the talk. This year all the presentations for the Fast Forward will be embedded in a movie. We ask authors to prepare:

  1. a PowerPoint-2015 title slide that will be used to show the title of the paper, authors and affiliations. Use of this template is mandatory. The slide will last 5 seconds.
  2. a 30 seconds movie (1 minute for posters and DC) that will present the main contributions of the paper (do not put the title in this 30 second movie).

Alternatively, if authors cannot provide the 30 second movie, they may provide a static slide (no animations or movies embedded). Again use of the provided template is mandatory.

For your own movie (30 seconds), your are only bound by the limits of your imagination (and our formatting guidelines). Eurographics 2017 has several concurrent sessions each day, and attendees will decide which presentations to attend based (in part) on the preview during the Fast Forward session. Creativity is highly encouraged!

We will collect all the material for all the papers, then assemble them into a single movie. We will strictly enforce our formatting guidelines (see below), including the 30 second time limit on your own content.


Submit your Fast Forward materials directly to the Fast Forward organizer at Submit a unique mail for each paper using the title « EG2017: <title> <track> » (replace « <title> » with the title of your paper and <track> by Full Paper or Short Paper and so on). Upon receival, we will send you a confirmation e-mail. For submissions larger than 5MB in size, please include a link from where your materials can be downloaded from.

Formatting guidelines

Assembling these presentations is a huge task, and we request that you help by adhering to the following guidelines. We included a title slide. Please add the title of your paper and the list of authors with their affiliation. The entire fast forward presentation will be pre-recorded as a movie. You will not have the ability to go back or make you talk last longer. We will insert session title slides.
