EGPGV 2020 - Call for Papers (Early Submission)

Early Abstract Deadline: October 11, 2019

Early Paper Deadline: October 18, 2019



The Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization 
(EGPGV) aims to foster the exchange of experiences and knowledge on 
exploiting and defining new trends in parallel graphics and 
visualization. This area is of growing importance due to the rapidly 
increasing 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.

EGPGV has two submission deadlines: early submission in fall and regular 
submission in spring. This offers authors the flexibility to choose 
between two separate submission deadlines. The early submission deadline 
provides the opportunity of improving manuscripts and resubmitting them 
to the spring deadline in case they are not successful in the fall 
review phase, resembling a major revision review process. An FAQ about 
the early submission process can be found at the bottom of this email. 
Please notice also that this year there are abstract deadlines one week 
in advance to the paper deadlines.

EGPGV 2020 will be collocated with Eurographics and EuroVis 2020, held 
May 25-29, 2020, in Norrkoeping, Sweden. The proceedings of 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.

EGPGV seeks papers on graphics and visualization that involve any type 
of parallel computing, and/or focus on very large data sets. 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 graphics
- 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
- Machine learning as applied to parallel graphics, visualization, 
and/or large data analytics

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.

EGPGV again calls for Full Papers (8 to 10 pages) and Short Papers (up 
to 4 pages) in Eurographics format. The EGPGV webpage will be updated 
soon with more details on submission.

FAQ on Early Submission:

Q: What happens if my paper is accepted in the early submission review 
A: Your paper will have the exact same status as any paper accepted 
during the regular submission deadline. It will appear in the 
proceedings and you will present your paper at EGPGV20. Further, you may 
place your paper on your website and advertise it as a paper that will 
appear at EGPGV20.

Q: What happens if my paper is not accepted in the early submission 
review cycle?
A: Papers not accepted during the early submission review cycle may be 
resubmitted as new during the regular review cycles. Authors can 
indicate to the Chairs whether they would like the same reviewers 
(effectively treating the initial review as a revision).

Q: If I do not submit to the early submission deadline, then can I still 
submit to the regular submission deadline?
A: You can absolutely submit to only the regular submission deadline.

Q: What is the timeline for the regular submission deadline?
A: We are still in discussions with Eurographics with respect to 
camera-ready deadlines. Traditionally, EGPGV has a submission deadline 
of late February and a notification of early April. We expect the 
timeline for the regular submissions to match this traditional schedule.
