Introduction

This site contains LyX layout files that can be used to typeset papers for Eurographics publications, such as Eurographics's annual conference, the Symposium on Geometry Processing (SGP) and the Computer Graphics Forum journal (CGF). 

Apart from allowing the direct entry of a teaser figure and ACM classifications, special attention was given to streamline the production of anonymous, blind submissions. To this end, publication which are double-blindly reviewed have two layout files, one for an anonymous submission, the other for the final one. Switching from one to another should be seamless, as they provide the same set of environments and insets.

After you've completed Setup (above),
  1. Grab eg-layout-sample.lyx.
  2. In Document ▶ Settings,
    1. Choose Article (Eurographics, SGP 12, anonymous) when you want to produce a PDF for an anonymous, blind submission.
    2. Choose Article (Eurographics, SGP 12) when you want to produce a final PDF which includes the author names.

Technicalities

The various layouts are very similar to each other, and are in fact generated from a single template layout by a Python script. You can have a look at the template layout and the Python script. It should be self-explanatory.
