Co-located Events

// Co-located events

Six co-located events will be held in conjunction with EuroVis 2019. All will take place on the same venue, the Alfândega do Porto Conference Center. While the final program is not yet defined, these events are planned for June 3rd.

Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization

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.

// EnvirVis
Visualization in Environmental Sciences Workshop

Research in environmental sciences has become more and more important as we are faced with increasing problems concerning climate change, water scarcity, pollution of the environment, or changes in biodiversity. The EnvirVis-workshop invites contributions with a broad application area in environmental research from both visualization and environmental sciences. Our goal is to raise awareness to the importance of visualisation for this domain and to establish a forum for interdisciplinary discussions.

// EuroVA
International EuroVis Workshop on Visual Analytics

EuroVA 2019 is the premier workshop to present and discuss fresh ideas on new methods and theories, novel applications, designs, and studies on the use of Visual Analytics methods and systems. The workshop will accept a wide range of contributions within the broad area of Visual Analytics, including novel techniques, systems, applications, evaluation studies and methods, and theoretical foundations, as well as fresh viewpoints on future challenges and critical reflections.

Workshop on Machine Learning Methods in Visualisation for Big Data

In order to handle big data challenges, machine learning techniques can be advantageous in simplifying and summarising large data sets for visualisation. Machine learning provides methods that allow the summarisation of very large data sets whereas visualisation leverages the human visual system to help find unanticipated patterns. In this workshop, we explore ways that our two areas can come together and work in a way that is beneficial for both fields. We solicit short papers on this emerging topic.

Workshop on Molecular Graphics and Visual Analysis of Molecular Data

Molecular visualization is one of the oldest branches of scientific visualization, which has been developing for over 50 years. Due to the continuous advances in both computational biology and computer graphics techniques, molecular graphics and visualization are still very active areas of research. Not only the ever-increasing dataset sizes yield a constant challenge for visual analysis, but also new technologies like advances in web-based graphics or augmented and virtual reality open new possibilities. In this half-day workshop, which is held for the second time in conjunction with EuroVis, we would like to initiate a multidisciplinary meeting which brings visualization researchers together working with molecular data.

// TrustVis
International EuroVis Workshop on Trustworthiness in Visualization

The EuroVis Workshop on Trustworthy Visualization (TrustVis), formerly known as EuroRVVV, is a continuation of this workshop, which was held six times in conjunction with EuroVis and IEEE VIS. TrustVis includes the topics covered by EuroRVVV – Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in visualization – and also widens the scope.
