Call for Participation
Call for Short Papers
For the third time, EuroVis 2014 features a short paper track.
As EuroVis 2014 is re-introducing a poster track,
the two tracks will be managed in an integrated manner by the same co-chair
team and the International Program Committee (IPC).
The purpose of these tracks 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 double-blind process by an international program committee. They will be electronically archived and are fully citable publications. Submissions for the short paper track should be at most 4 pages, with an additional page allowed for references. Accepted short papers will be presented orally at the conference.
Submissions to the short paper track that are not accepted for short paper publication and presentation but are deemed suitable for poster presentation by the IPC will be offered an opportunity to present in the poster track. In this case, the poster will be published on the conference USB sticks.
Note:The topics of some short papers will fit well with those of the co-located events, such as EuroVA. We strongly encourage authors to submit such papers to the respective co-located events.
Please see the important dates page.
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 its 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.
Further details about paper types and suggested topics can be found on the paper types page and the call for participation full papers page.
