We are pleased to announce High-Performance Graphics 2023. High-Performance Graphics is the leading international forum for performance-oriented graphics and imaging systems research including innovative algorithms, efficient implementations, languages, compilers, parallelism, and hardware architectures for high-performance graphics. The conference brings together researchers, engineers, and architects to discuss the complex interactions of parallel hardware, novel programming models, and efficient algorithms in the design of systems for current and future graphics and visual computing applications.

Information for presenters

We thank all our presenters for their contributions. In preparing your presentation, you may find the following information useful:

  • Please check the duration of your session and schedule your talk accordingly, allowing time for questions and setup. For example, if the session is 75 minutes and contains three talks, please ensure that your talk does not run over 25 minutes — ideally aim for 18-20 minutes for your talk itself.
  • The lecture hall style of the venue means that visibility should be relatively good compared with, for example, SIGGRAPH convention halls, but please still allow for limited vision and contrast — if you are trying to show pixel-level detail, ensure that it is large, and also available in supplemental material. You may wish to seek out the “How to Give a Greate SIGGRAPH Talk” course from SIGGRAPH 2001.
  • Please bring your own laptop from which to present — we will swap connections between contributors. Connection is via HDMI, so while we will try to have adaptors available for emergencies, please bring your own if possible.
  • The projector is a 1920×1080 (16:9) widescreen system; please format your slides accordingly.
  • There is no official template. If you wish to incorporate the HPG logo in your slides to tie it to the event, options are available here.
  • We do not require presentation material (typically PDF or PowerPoint) to be shared, but if you are willing to do so, we would like to archive them on the HPG web site. To share content, please contact publicity@highperformancegraphics.org, ideally with a link to a file share; if you wish to do this before the conference so that attendees can follow along (particularly those who may have difficulty reading the projected screen), we are happy to accommodate (and can make revisions as needed). Out of sympathy to viewers and our servers, if your presentation is more than a few MB in size (for example because it contains a lot of video) we would appreciate you sharing a size-reduced version. We can also provide links to project home pages and other supplemental material.
  • Actual papers will be linked once in the official libraries. We can archive posters on the web site if you wish.

Conference Info

High-Performance Graphics is co-sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH and Eurographics. The program features three days of paper and industry presentations.

The conference will be in-person this year (with an online component) and will take place from June 26-28, 2023 in Delft, Netherlands — co-sited with Eurographics Symposium on Rendering Techniques.

Papers Track

We invite original and innovative performance-oriented contributions to the design of algorithms and hardware architectures, for all areas of graphics in the broadest sense, including rendering, virtual and augmented reality, ray tracing, physics, and animation.

Paper Length and Format

Published proceedings will be archived in the ACM and Eurographics Digital Libraries. Furthermore, a curated selection of accepted papers will be featured in a special issue of the Eurographics Computer Graphics Forum (CGF) journal. CGF papers will be selected based on reviewer recommendations, the outcome of a second review cycle, and HPG Committee deliberation.

There is no fixed maximum length for a paper. However, the magnitude of the contribution must be proportional to the length of the paper. Papers longer than ten typeset pages in the final format must make a very significant contribution to be accepted. Writing plays an important role in the assessment. Omitting important details or tampering with formatting rules may cause a paper to be graded lower than a longer paper that is clearly written, without being repetitive or verbose.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions should use SRM, which includes format information for Eurographics. These format requirements match that of Computer Graphics Forum, so curated papers should not need modification before publication.

We try to be as permissive as possible while still taking all reasonable steps to preserve anonymity during the review process. Please do not make public statements on the submission status of your paper until acceptance has been confirmed. Before your paper is accepted:

  • You may upload a version of your submission, for example as a technical report or to arXiv (or similar services), but please do not mention HPG.
  • You may give presentations about your work, without saying it is submitted to HPG.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via papers@highperformancegraphics.org.

Hot 3D Systems Track

We invite vendors in the graphics industry to submit presentations of their latest and greatest graphics hardware products, high-performance software systems, and graphics software applications. We welcome all topics relating to the HPG general call for participation. This year in particular we encourage talks relating to metaverse: remote, distributed, collaborative, cloud graphics and systems. Presentations should be 20 minutes long, with a focus on technical aspects of real products (marketing-oriented talks will not be accepted). Hot 3D presentations are not considered archival publications for the purposes of future submission to peer-reviewed venues.

For further information please contact: hot3d@highperformancegraphics.org.


We also invite the submission of posters describing ongoing or late-breaking work. Please note that posters are not considered archival publications and thus should not prevent submitting the work therein to other publication venues.

Poster submissions should be sent directly to: posters@highperformancegraphics.org. Participants should produce a poster of A0 size, and are responsible for their own printing; HPG will provide boards for attachment. If you wish your poster to be made available (and archived) on the HPG web site, please provide us with a final PDF before the conference.
