EGPGV Call For Papers (Submission Deadline: March 6, 2018)

== About EGPGV ==

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 
EuroGraphics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization (EGPGV) 
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.

EGPGV18 will be colocated with EuroVis2018, held the week of June 4-8 
2018, in Brno, Czech Republic.

The symposium seeks papers on graphics and visualization that involve 
any type of parallel computing. Papers on techniques, data structures, 
algorithms, systems, and applications are welcomed. Parallel computing 
is broadly defined, including high-performance computing and cloud 
environments, (multi-) GPU computing and heterogeneous, hybrid 
architectures, and shared and/or distributed memory architectures. 
Further, papers focused on processing very large data sets (either for 
visualization or graphics) are welcomed, even if they do not have a 
particular focus on parallelism.

Typical symposium topics include:

- Computationally and data intensive rendering
- Scientific visualization (e.g., volume rendering, flow, and tensor 
- Information visualization and visual analytics
- In situ analytics and in situ visualization
- Out-of-core processing of large data sets for visualization or 
- 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
- Parallelization approaches and algorithms, such as MapReduce
- Database-related methods, algorithms or approaches, and query-based 
- Advanced hardware for data handling or visualization
- Large and high resolution displays, virtual environments
- Scientific, engineering, and industrial applications
- Data analytics on large scientific data sets

In general, appropriate topics for the symposium fall into one of four 
(1) parallel graphics,
(2) rendering of very large data sets,
(3) parallel visualization and analytics, and
(4) processing of large data sets for visualization or analytics.
