EuroVis 2014, hosted by Swansea University in the UK, is the 16th annual
visualization gathering organized by the Eurographics Working Group on
Data Visualization and supported by the IEEE Visualization and Graphics
Technical Committee (IEEE VGTC). EuroVis has been a Eurographics and IEEE
co-supported international visualization symposium held in Europe annually
since 1999. Since 2014 EuroVis is a conference.
The exciting and vibrant field of Visualization is an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. In general, our ability to collect, store, and archive data vastly exceeds our ability derive useful knowledge and insight from it. This is a ubiquitous problem. Data visualization is key in gaining an understanding large, complex data sets by exploiting the human visual system. Data visualization leverages computer graphics in order to provide a visual overview, explore, analyze, and present phenomena which is often difficult to understand.
The objective of EuroVis is to foster greater exchange between visualization researchers and practitioners, and to draw more researchers and industry partners in Europe to enter this rapidly growing area of research. EuroVis has an expanded scope to include all areas of visualization, and a steadily more wide-spread visibility that achieves a more wide-spread impact.
EuroVis papers are published as a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum, (CGF) the International Journal of the Eurographics Association, using a two-stage review process.
The main conference is preceded by Workshops such as EuroVA 2014, the 5th international EuroVis Workshop on Visual Analytics, which will be held in the same location on June 9 and 10, 2014. Other closely related workshops will also be held.
New to EuroVis 2014
For the first time in 2014, EuroVis also features a survey paper track (also known as State-of-the-Art Report, STAR) which aims to foster an overview presentation of a particular sub-field of data visualization. STAR papers will be electronically archived and are fully citeable publications which will undergo a one-stage peer-review process by an international program committee. A selection of STAR submissions will be invited for a subsequent submission to the CGF journal. Details will be posted on the web site.
Short Paper Acceptance
Short papers will feature two acceptance categories: accept for oral presentation and accept as poster presentation. This way, more presenters will have the opportunity to showcase their work.
This year will feature a Workshops call for participation. Workshop [roposals 0.5-1.0 pages in length will be accepted for all those interesting in organizing a meeting which complements the main event.
Delicious Welsh cakes will be served daily. Freshly baked Welsh cakes have an addictive quality to them.
EuroVis takes place in the UK only once approximately every ten years, so take advantage of this great opportunity. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the Conference Co-Chair, Robert S Laramee, (+44) 01792 602 609 or r.s.laramee "at" swansea.ac.uk
