Eurographics 2016 Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization
(EGPGV 2016)
June 6-7, 2016, Groningen, the Netherlands
Co-located with EuroVis 2016

Call for Papers

The importance of parallel computing is increasing rapidly with the
ubiquitous availability of multi-core CPUs, GPUs, and cluster systems.
Computationally demanding and data-intensive applications in graphics
and visualization are strongly affected by this trend and require novel
efficient parallel solutions. The aim of this symposium is to foster the
exchange of experiences and knowledge exploiting and defining new trends
in parallel graphics and visualization.

The proceedings of the EGPGV Symposium will be published in the
Eurographics Proceedings Series and in the Eurographics Digital Library.
Best papers from the EGPGV symposium will be invited to submit an
extended journal version to IEEE Transactions on Visualization and
Computer Graphics.

Focusing on parallel computing, the symposium seeks papers on graphics
and visualization techniques, data structures, algorithms, and systems for:

- large-data
- clusters
- (multi-)GPU computing, and heterogeneous, hybrid architectures
- out-of-core
- hybrid distributed and shared memory architectures
- grid and cloud environments

In particular the symposium topics include:

- computationally and data intensive rendering
- scientific visualization (volume rendering, flow and tensor visualization)
- information visualization and visual analytics
- simulations for virtual environments (physics-based animation,
collision detection, acoustics)
- mesh processing, level-of-detail, and geometric methods
- visual computing (image- and video-based rendering, image processing
and exploitation, segmentation)
- scheduling, memory management and data coherence
- large and high resolution displays, virtual environments
- scientific, engineering, and industrial applications

Important Dates

Paper Submission:    February 19, 2016
Author Notification: April 1, 2016
Camera-Ready papers: April 15, 2016
Symposium:           June 6-7, 2016

Submission instructions

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works. Full
papers are expected to be eight to ten (8-10) pages in length, with the
final length appropriate to the contribution of the paper. Submissions
are to be formatted along the Eurographics paper publication guidelines.

We expect that the submissions will clearly discuss the novel and
significant contributions as well as related work in the field. Authors
must highlight how their contributions differ and advance the state of
the art in parallel graphics and visualization. The full paper and all
supplementary material must be submitted via the PCS online system.

Additional submission details will be announced shortly on egpgv.org.
