Call for Papers

With this call for papers, we invite the active participation in EuroVis 2012 with the presentation of high-quality visualization research. EuroVis 2012 will be held in Vienna, Austria, June 5-8, 2012.

EuroVis 2012 is the 14th annual scientific gathering on visualization jointly organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization and the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee. Building on the success of 9 EG ViSC Workshops in the years from 1990 to 1998, the first Eurographics/IEEE TCVG Symposium on Visualization was held in Vienna in 1999. In 2012, EuroVis is back to Vienna and, based on the continued growth and success of the event, will be a conference for the first time.

Papers accepted for EuroVis 2012 are published in a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum, the International Journal of the Eurographics Association, after a two-stage peer-reviewing process. Submissions should be 9 pages (at most), excluding references, and 10 pages (at most), in total.

This year EuroVis will also feature a new short paper track. Short papers will be electronically archived fully citable publications limited to 4 pages plus one page of references and will receive oral presentations at the conference. The purpose of this track is to promote, in addition to other research, late-breaking results, technical contributions, and work in progress.

Please note that we encourage authors of short papers on visual analytics to submit to the EuroVA workshop. We invite researchers in the field of visual analytics to submit full papers to EuroVis.
