Co-located Events

A number of co-located events will be held in conjunction with EGEV 2020.

EGPGV

Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization

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.

MLVis 2020

International Workshop on Machine Learning in Visualisation for Big Data 2020

The Workshop on Machine Learning in Visualisation for Big Data targeted toward machine learning methods in visualisation from both the machine learning and visualisation communities, addressing how the two technologies can be used together to provide greater insight to end users.
The fifth edition of this co-located event will be part-tutorial and part-workshop so as to increase the interaction between researchers.

EuroVA

International Eurovis Workshop on Visual Analytics

EuroVA 2020 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.

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 workshop on Visualization in Environmental Sciences (EnvirVis) 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 visualization for this domain and to establish a forum for interdisciplinary discussions.

VisGap

The gap between visualization research and visualization software development

The VisGap Symposium aims to shed a light on the gap between research and practical applicability, examine the obstacles every researcher faces, and propose solutions to overcome this problem as a community.

VisGap’20 aims at gathering experts from all over the visualization community in order to advance the way our field works with software, sustains software, and values the effort our members put into developing said software.

MolVA

Workshop on Molecular Graphics and Visual Analysis of Molecular Data

Molecular visualization and graphics 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 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.

This half-day multidisciplinary workshop – which is held in conjunction with Eurovis for the third time and with Eurographics for the first time – brings together visualization and computer graphics researchers working with molecular data. Whereas molecular graphics is an established topic for many years, the hybrid-dimensional visual analysis of molecular structures is still a quite new research field with a lot of potential. We would like to encourage submissions especially using new technologies, such as immersive analytics or ML-related approaches.

We invite short papers as well as full papers. All papers will undergo a single-stage, double-blind peer review by an international program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the EG digital library.

WICED

Workshop on Intelligent Cinematography and Editing

The intelligent analysis and computation of cinematic elements including placement of virtual cameras, transitions between shots and lighting, shows great promise to extend the communicative power of the film arts into the artificial environments of games and virtual worlds. When paired with emerging depth-sensing cameras and computer vision algorithms, intelligent cinematography algorithms increasingly find applications in real-world cinematography as well.

This workshop intends to bring together leading researchers from fields including 3D graphics, artificial intelligence, computer vision, visualization, interactive narrative, cognitive and perceptual psychology, computational linguistics, computational aesthetics, visual effects, augmented reality, virtual reality and others related to aspects of automatic camera control and film editing.
