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

Dear colleagues:

Due to several requests from authors, we postponed the full paper
submission deadline for EGPGV 2016 from February 19 to March 4, 2016.

Besides regular papers, this CfP also adds a call for visualization
showcases submissions (described below).

Call for Regular 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

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You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works.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.

Call for Visualization Showcases

This year we present the second edition of the Visualization Showcase.
This track provides a forum for the year's most instrumental movies in
parallel graphics and visualization. Finalists will compete for the Best
Visualization Award, and each finalist will present his or her movie during
a dedicated session at EGPGV '16 in a 10-minute presentation. Movies
are judged based on how they illuminate science, by the quality of the
and for innovations in the process used for creating the movie. Accepted
submissions will appear as short papers in the symposium proceedings.

Review and selection process for Visualization Showcases

Submissions need to include a movie (up to 150MB in size) and a short
paper (up to 4 pages including references). The short paper should describe
the scientific story conveyed by the movie, how the visualization helps
scientific discovery, and the "state-of-the-practice" information behind
making the movie.

Each showcase submission will be peer-reviewed by the EGPGV International
Program Committee. Criteria for revision include:

* Compelling visualization
* Visualizing data involving parallel graphics and/or parallel
visualization in a
significant way (e.g., data size, parallel processing, parallel rendering)
* Meaningful and compelling science story
* Description of visualization techniques necessary to accomplish the movie
