Full Papers

Formatting instructions

In order to submit to EuroVis 2015, authors prepare their submissions as a PDF file using the EuroVis 2015 LaTeX2e style (including a document class, a style file, a sample source file, and a corresponding PDF output file). Please make sure that an image embedded in your paper does not contain transparent pixels (i.e., an alpha channel of a transparent color), because this will lead to problems when the resulting PDF is displayed or printed. 

Submissions can also include supplementary material such as videos or executable programs, up to a limit of 50MB for the entire submission, including the PDF file. We encourage the use of digital videos to support paper submissions, particularly if part of, or all of the work covers interactive techniques. Please use only the most common video codecs to maximize the chances that the reviewers can see it.

Author Guidelines

EuroVis 2015 full paper submissions will undergo a two-stage review process. The review process is double-blind meaning that submissions must not reveal the identity of the authors (see below). All full papers accepted to EuroVis 2015 appear in a special issue of Computer Graphics Forum, containing the conference proceedings, and will appear at the same time in the Eurographics digital library. 

Note that for each full paper the submission of an abstract is mandatory by the abstract deadline, with completed papers due on by the full paper deadline. View the important dates page for details. 

All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any conference proceedings, magazine, journal, or edited book. Concurrent submissions are strictly forbidden. If it is determined that a manuscript is simultaneously under the consideration by another publication venue, the manuscript will be rejected. 

Full papers will undergo a revision and review cycle after initial notification of review results in order to ensure they are acceptable for publication and presentation in the journal. At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the conference to present the work, and authors will also be required to present a brief (less than one-minute) summary of their talk at the opening papers preview session (also called papers fast-forward). 

We expect that the submissions will clearly discuss the novel and significant contributions as well as place them in the context of prior art in the field. Authors should highlight how their contributions differ from previous work and advance the state of the art in visualization. Among the venues for important prior art are journals such as Computer Graphics Forum and IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics as well as conferences like EuroVis, Vis, InfoVis, VAST, and PacificVis. 

EuroVis 2015 uses a double-blind review process for the first review cycle. Author identities will be hidden from the external reviewers. Authors should therefore not include their name or institution on the cover page of the initial submission, and should make an effort to ensure that there is no self-revealing information in the text. However, you will still need to provide a complete list of authors when submitting your abstract so that members of the program committee can avoid conflicts of interest during reviewer assignment. All authors must be specified in the submission system (but not in the paper) at the time of the submission. Adding additional authors after the acceptance of a paper is not acceptable. 

Authors should cite all relevant previous work and clearly explain the differences between it and their paper, including their own previous work. Authors should do this in a way that does not reveal which references are part of their own work. For example, do not write "In our previous work on foobar [13] ... " and then have "[13] Removed for blind review" for the citation. Instead, discuss the work in the third person: "We build on the previous work of Smith et al. [13] ... " and include the full reference details. If it is impossible to do so, for instance because the work is submitted or in press but not yet publicly available, then include an anonymized version of the relevant document(s) with your submission as supplemental material. Authors do not include an acknowledgments section in the intitial submission, nor should they post their submitted manuscript on the web before the notification date of the first review cycle. 

Our conference will adhere to the following ethics guidelines for reviewers, which can be found here: Reviewing Guidelines

STAR Papers

Formatting Instructions

Submissions are limited to a maximum of 20 pages (including bibliography). Authors should prepare their submissions as a PDF file using the EuroVis 2015 LaTeX2e style (including a document class, a style file, a sample source file, and a corresponding PDF output file).

Author Guidelines

A state-of-the-art report submitted to EuroVis 2015 must be original, unpublished work. Any work that has previously been published or simultaneously been submitted in a substantially similar form to any other conference or journal will be rejected. Contributions must be presented in English.

At EuroVis 2015, the authors of a STAR will invited to present the report at a level that also allows non-experts in the particular domain to follow their presentation. We plan to schedule each STAR as a 60-90 minute presentation as in Eurographics conferences (subject to the schedule management of the EuroVis 2015 program). In any circumstance, a STAR presentation will always be given a longer time slot than that for a full paper.

Authors will be encouraged to subsequently submit the STAR as a regular contribution to Computer Graphics Forum journal. 

Short Papers

Formatting Instructions

In order to submit to EuroVis 2015 Short Papers, authors prepare their submissions as a PDF file using the EuroVis 2015 Short Paper LaTeX2e style (including a document class, a style file, a sample source file, and a corresponding PDF output file). Please make sure that an image embedded in your paper does not contain transparent pixels (i.e., an alpha channel of a transparent color), because this will lead to problems when the resulting PDF is displayed or printed. 

Submissions can also include supplementary material such as videos or executable programs, up to a limit of 50MB for the entire submission, including the PDF file. We encourage the use of digital videos to support paper submissions, particularly if part of, or all of the work covers interactive techniques. Please use only the most common video codecs, e.g., MPEG, MP2, MP4 and versions thereof, to maximize the chances that the reviewers can view it.
