Call for Short Papers

For the first time, EuroVis 2012 features a short paper track. The purpose of this new track is to present late-breaking results, work in progress, and follow-up extensions or evaluations of existing methods.

Short papers will be peer-reviewed in a one-stage process by an international program committee. They will be electronically archived and are fully citeable publications. Submissions for the short paper track should be 4 pages (at most), excluding references, and 5 pages (at most), in total. They will be orally presented at the conference. EuroVis 2012 will be held in Vienna, Austria, June 5-8, 2012.

Please note that we encourage authors of short papers on visual analytics to submit to the EuroVA workshop.

Important Dates

  • Short Papers Submission Deadline: March 2, 2012
  • Acceptance Notification: April 11, 2012
  • Camera-ready Deadline: April 25, 2012
  • Conference Dates: June 5-8, 2012

A EuroVis short paper describes a more focused and concise research contribution and is likely to have a smaller - yet still significant - scope of contribution than a full paper. Short papers draw from the same paper types as full papers, as well as the same list of suggested topics. The following descriptive examples, which are characterized in contrast to full papers, may be helpful in understanding what kinds of submissions may be suitable for short papers:

  • A new visualization technique or system and evidence of its utility compared to known techniques or systems (described in sufficient detail to assist an expert reader in replicating the technique or system, but without exhaustive implementation detail and evaluation).
  • An incremental improvement or variation of an existing visualization technique or system with convincing evaluation.
  • An extensive evaluation of an existing visualization technique or system.
  • A well-proven counter-example to an existing visualization technique that helps to understand limitations.
  • A new implementation approach that has demonstrably addressed a significant technical issue (without extensive evaluation of the implementation).
  • A new methodology for designing or studying visualization systems that has demonstrable benefits for the EuroVis community (without extensive evaluation of the methodology).

All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any conference proceedings, magazine, journal, or edited book.
