Eurographics 2017 Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization
(EGPGV 2017) Call for Papers


June 12-13, 2017, Barcelona, Spain

Co-located with EuroVis 2017


Dear colleagues,

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 

- HPC and cloud environments

- (multi-)GPU computing, and heterogeneous, hybrid architectures

- shared and/or distributed memory architectures

- out-of-core

The symposium topics include:

- computationally and data intensive rendering
- scientific visualization (volume rendering, flow, and tensor visualization)

- information visualization and visual analytics
- in-situ analytics and in-situ visualization

- 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

- distributed, parallel, or multi-threaded approaches
- mapReduce-based and database-related methods, algorithms or approaches, query based visualization
- advanced hardware for data handling or visualization
- large and high resolution displays, virtual environments

- scientific, engineering, and industrial applications

Submission types


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works. Two types of submissions are accepted, as follows.

Full papers
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 full paper 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, if any, must be submitted via the PCS online system.

Short papers

This year we introduce a new type of submission: short papers. Short papers target the same interest topics as full papers, but are maximally 4 pages in
length. As such, they typically address novel ideas or work in progress which
has not been sufficiently solidly validated as for full papers. Short papers can also target use-cases and applications of parallel graphics and visualization, presentation of parallel graphics and visualization tools and systems, industry
success stories, and showcases of applications making use of parallel graphics
and visualization. The short paper track thus broadens the visualization showcase track that was present in earlier editions of EGPGV. Short papers and their supplementary material, if any, must be submitted via the PCS online system.

Accepted papers (both full and short) will appear in the symposium proceedings
and be published via the Eurographics Digital Library.

Submission process
Papers are accepted when submitted via the PCS system (precisionconference.com). Additional details with respect to the submission process will be announced shortly on egpgv.org/egpgv2017

Reviewing process
Both paper types (full and short) will be reviewed by at least three members of the
International Program Committee (IPC), in a single review pass. Full papers deemed insufficient in terms of the contribution level expected for a full paper, but presenting
otherwise interesting, novel, and valuable results, can be selected by the IPC to be
accepted as short papers. The review process is not double blind; we leave it to the 
latitude of the authors whether they want to disclose their identity in their submissions.
