CFP: State-of-the-Art Reports (STARS)

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 second time, EuroVis 2015 features a State-of-the-Art Report (STAR) track. State-of-the-Art Reports (STARs) are intended to provide up-to-date and comprehensive surveys on topics of interest to the visualization research community. We encourage the submission of STARs on topics that have not yet been covered in any recent previous STAR. We welcome submissions that introduce emerging technologies, as well as proposals on more traditional visualization topics. We also welcome contributions from related disciplines and application areas demonstrating contributions to or benefits from the area of visualization including, but not limited to: Visual Computing, Computer Graphics, Human-Computer Interaction, Photogrammetry, Virtual Reality, Image Processing, Computer Vision, Psychology, Geography, Chemistry, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Data Analysis, Computational Sciences, Medicine, Biology, Economy, Politology, etc.

Important Dates

The submission deadline is 23:59GMT, Friday January 16th, 2015.

Please see the important dates page for more details.


Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of the contribution quality and topic suitability for presentation in a STAR format, the past experience and qualifications of the authors and the overall balance in the program. A STAR submission should be an almost complete version of the planned STAR, outlining the topic, documenting its relation and relevance to the visualization community, including a planned table of contents and a major subset of the targeted literature references, as well as including brief biographies of the authors, demonstrating their qualification to produce the proposed STAR. Such a proposal should be 10-20 pages (at most) in length, including references; submissions can also include supplementary material. 

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