EuroVis 2009 is the eleventh annual Visualization Symposium jointly organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization and the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee.

Call for Posters & Demos

We invite you to contribute to the first Poster/Demo session at EuroVis 2009. Poster/demo abstract submissions are due April 10, 2009.

All poster presenters are encouraged to bring a laptop to present demos and/or videos. In addition to the poster session itself, where all presenters will concurrently discuss their work with EuroVis attendees, there will be a fast-forward session where presenters will have 60 seconds each to preview their work to the whole audience.

Posters/Demos is a venue for several kinds of work. We welcome preliminary findings that are not mature enough for a full paper, interesting work with a contribution smaller than a typical research paper (student projects often fall into this category), or late-breaking research where you would benefit from feedback from the community before writing it up as a full paper. There is no explicit research novelty requirement; for instance, we welcome demonstrations of open-source software even if its research aspects have already been published in another venue, presentations of commercial visualization software, or videos showing visualization systems in action. Although a full literature review is not expected, the most relevant previous work should be cited, particularly if new research results are presented.

The collection of accepted abstracts will be distributed to conference attendees (xeroxed, black and white only), but they will not be included in the archival proceedings or indexed in a digital library. Thus, posters do not preclude the later submission of work as a full research paper at EuroVis or
another venue.

Each poster abstract will be read and evaluated by the Conference Chairs. Submissions will be evaluated based on whether the content is suitable for EuroVis and not a repetition of the work of others. Authors of posters that are not accepted will receive summary reviews of their poster from the chairs explaining the decision and providing feedback.

Suggested topics for posters and demos include, but are not limited to:

- Visualization Taxonomies and Models
- Spatial Data in Visualization
- Non-Spatial Data (Information Visualization)
- Visualization Techniques
- Interaction in Visualization
- Visual Analytics, Visual Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
- Large Data Visualization
- Hardware for Visualization
- Visual Design
- Cognition and Perception
- Design Studies
- Novel Algorithms, Applied Mathematics
- Distributed, collaborative, mobile/ubiquitous visualization
- Evaluation and User Studies
- Visualization Systems

We also encourage submission of application oriented posters dealing with visualization in different domains, e.g.

- Physical Sciences and Engineering
- Earth, Space and Environmental Sciences
- Bioinformatics, Life Sciences, Medical Research and Applications
- Information Sciences
- Business and Finance
- Software Development
- Humanities, Social Sciences, Education

Before submitting a poster and/or demo abstract, please note the following:

- Poster abstract submissions should be in two-column format and not exceed one page. Authors should prepare and electronically submit a PDF version of their poster and/or demo abstract following the guidelines. The submissions need not be anonymous.

- Examples of one-page poster abstracts are here and here and of corresponding posters are here and here.

- Further examples of nice posters are here.

- All abstract submissions should be sent in PDF format by email to kaehler[at] before 24:00 GMT/UTC on April 10, 2009. We are not accepting video submissions.

- The submission should clearly state if a demo or video will be presented during the session.

- Notification about acceptance of posters & demos: April 16, 2009

- At least one of the poster authors must be present at the conference.

All questions pertaining to the EuroVis 2009 poster session should be directed to Ralf Kähler kaehler[at]
