CFP: Short Papers

EuroVis 2015 is the 17th annual scientific gathering on visualization jointly organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization and the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee. Based on the continued growth and success of the event, EuroVis will be a conference for the fourth time. EuroVis 2015 will be held in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy, May 25-29, 2015. 

For the fourth time, EuroVis 2015 features a short paper track 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. All accepted short papers will be presented orally at the conference.

Important Dates

The submission deadline is 23:59GMT, Wednesday February 18th, 2015.

Please see the important dates page for more details.


Submissions for the short paper track should be at most 4 pages, with an additional page allowed for references. All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any conference proceedings, magazine, journal, or edited book. 

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).

For detailed paper preparation and submission instructions please refer to the guidelines in the submitters area of the conference web pages.
