EuroVis 2011: Call for Papers

Eurographics/IEEE Symposium on Visualization in Bergen, Norway;
Dates: May 31 (EuroVA), then EuroVis on June 1–3, 2011
Abstracts due Nov. 26, 2010,
Papers due Dec. 3, 2010


With this call for papers, we invite the active participation in EuroVis 2011 with the presentation of high-quality visualization research.

EuroVis 2011, i.e., the Eurographics/IEEE Symposium on Visualization, is annually organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization and the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee.  General URL:

In 2011, the symposium is located in Bergen, Norway, continuing an already extensive series of earlier meetings, consisting of 12 EuroVis/VisSym events in the years 1999–2010 (most recently in Bordeaux, Berlin, Eindhoven, and Norrköping), as well as 9 EG ViSC Workshops in the years 1990 to 1998.  Bergen is a historic port-town on the scenic west coast of Norway, also called the gateway to the fjords.

Important note:  Early June is amongst the few very best weeks in the year to visit Bergen and it is very, very popular during this time – early booking of accommodation (before April!) is strongly recommended to avoid problems with the travel planning.

Papers accepted for EuroVis 2011 are published in a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum, i.e., The International Journal of the Eurographics Association, after a two-staged peer-reviewing process.

Submissions should be 9 pages (at most), excluding references, and 10 pages (at most), in total.

Abstracts are due November 26, 2010, and full papers on December 3, 2010 (more dates further below).  Submission should be made through the vgtc page at the Precision Conference System (PCS), URL (submitting authors should first log into PCS, before they are able to register/submit their work). 

Suggested topics for research papers include (but are not limited to):

Visualization Taxonomies and Models
Spatial Data in Visualization
visualization of scalar, vector, and tensor fields, multi-field, multi-variate, and multi-dimensional visualization, multi-resolution techniques, visualization of irregular and unstructured grid data, geographic data, and molecular data
Non-Spatial Data
visualization of graphs and trees, high-dimensional data, dimensionality reduction for visualization, ambient information in visualization, text and document visualization, and the visualizaiton of time series data
Large Data Visualization
visualization of time-varying data, streams, compression techniques, parallel and distributed visualization, scalability, visualization over networks, visualization hardware and acceleration techniques
Visualization Techniques
metrical, geometrical, topological, pixel-oriented, point-based, volume-based, icon-/glyph-based, graph-based, feature-based, hierarchical, illustrative, view-dependent, focus+context, statistical, and animated visualization techniques
Visual Analytics, Visual Data Mining, and Knowledge Discovery
in particular the integration of computational approaches with interactive visualization, visualization for exploration, analysis, and presentation

Please note that EuroVis is open to all kinds of high-quality visualization works, especially also to visual analytics – in coordination with EuroVA, we invite researchers in the field of visual analytics to submit full paper submissions to EuroVis and short papers / posters to EuroVA (later deadline).

human-computer interaction for visualization, interaction design, zooming and navigation, linking & brushing, coordinated multiple views, data editing, manipulation, and deformation, guided visualization and interactive visual storytelling
General Topics
visual design, cognition, perception, and aesthetics, uncertainty, design studies, novel algorithms and mathematics, presentation/production/dissemination, collaborative and distributed visualization, mobile/ubiquitous visualization, visualization systems, problem-solving environments, virtual environments, sonification and haptics, visualization for the masses
Evaluation and User Studies
task and requirements analysis, metrics and benchmarks, qualitative evaluation, quantitative evaluation, laboratory studies, field studies, usability studies
Application Areas of Visualization
in the physical sciences, bioinformatics and in life sciences, and in engineering, geographic and earth/space/environmental visualization, information sciences, software and financial visualization, and applications in the humanities, social sciences, and education

Co-located event: EuroVA 2011

EuroVis Workshop on Visual Analytics in Bergen, Norway;
Date: May 31, 2011, preceding EuroVis

EuroVA 2011 (following EuroVAST in 2010) is the second international workshop on visual analytics, held in Europe.

It aims at promoting and advancing the combination and integration of methods for interactive visualization and computational analytics for the purpose of problem solving in a variety of application domains (engineering, business, public policy, medicine, security, etc.).

EuroVA 2011 is held on May 31, 2011, in Bergen, Norway, co-located with the annual EuroVis 2011 conference.

The EuroVA 2011 program will include one invited speaker from research or industry as well as short paper presentations and posters (note the additional opportunity to submit a full paper to the EuroVis conference, which solicits visual analytics as one of its main topics).

Short paper submission deadline for EuroVA: Feb. 18, 2011
(short papers are up to a maximum of 4 pages in length)
