Eurovis Call for Posters

The posters track will present late-breaking results, work in progress, follow-up extensions, application case studies, or evaluations of existing methods. Additionally, we also invite posters describing open research problems defined by domain scientists (e.g., physicians, biologists, industry partners, etc.). In particular, it provides young researchers, especially postgraduate students, with valuable opportunities to receive feedback from other researchers and engage in stimulating discussions leading to possible new collaborations.

Important Dates

April 3, 2020 Submission deadline
April 20, 2020 Notification
April 30, 2020 Camera ready version

* All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC


We solicit poster submissions in the form of a sketch (i.e., an extended abstract of at most 2 pages in the EuroVis poster format, with an additional page allowed for references only). We strongly encourage the submission of additional materials. For example, you can submit an additional PDF (without any page limit) that contains a number of example results, screenshots, an interaction sequence, etc. The poster draft can also be added as additional material (but is not mandatory for the submission). Finally, submissions can also include supplementary material such as videos or executable programs. In particular for interactive tools/approaches, a digital video is essential and thus strongly encouraged to allow the reviewers to assess the interactive aspects.

Poster sketches are to be submitted using the Precision Conference System (PCS), according to
the instructions on the submission guidelines section below.

At least one author of an accepted poster must register for and attend the conference to present the work. Authors will also be required to present a brief (less than one-minute) summary of their poster content at the opening preview session (also called fast-forward).

Both a PDF version of the poster and the extended abstract will be included on the conference USB stick and also in the EG digital library with a DOI. The material in a poster/sketch can later be reused by the original authors for a more extensive publication (e.g., a full paper) with more detailed content and mature results, without being considered self-plagiarism.

For detailed poster preparation and submission instructions please refer to the submission guidelines below!

Submission Guidelines

Formatting Instructions

In order to submit to EuroVis 2020 posters, authors prepare their submission as a 2-page PDF file (“sketch”) using the EuroVis 2020 LaTeX template. Please use EGauthorGuidelines-eurovis20-poster.tex for your submission.

Make sure that images embedded in your poster sketch do not contain transparent pixels (i.e., an alpha channel of a transparent color), because this will lead to problems when the resulting PDF is displayed or printed.

Submissions can also include supplementary material such as videos or executable programs. We encourage the use of digital videos to support poster submissions, particularly if part of, or all of the work covers interactive techniques. Please use only the most common video codecs (e.g., MP4 format using the H.264 codec) to maximize the chances that the reviewers can play the video. A poster draft can also be added as additional material but is not mandatory for the submission.

Authors Guidelines

Eurovis 2020 poster submissions will undergo a one-stage double-blind review process. Author identities will be hidden from the reviewers. Authors should therefore not include their name or institution on the cover page of the initial submission, and should make an effort to ensure that there is no self-revealing information in the text. However, you will still need to provide a complete list of authors when submitting your poster so that members of the program committee can avoid conflicts of interest during reviewer assignment. All authors must be specified in the submission system (but not in the sketch or poster draft) at the time of the submission. Adding additional authors after the acceptance of a poster is not acceptable.
We expect that the submissions will clearly discuss the novel and significant contributions as well as place them in the context of prior art in the field.

Contributions must be written and presented in English.

Our conference will adhere to the following ethics guidelines for reviewers, which can be found on the Reviewer Guidelines page.

Camera-ready Guidelines

We ask authors of accepted posters to submit their final material by the camera ready deadline (April 30) through the PCS. To do so, please go to “submissions in progress”. There, you can upload your final submission. Additionally, you may update your supplementary material. Make sure that you provide all required information in PCS. For your camera-ready submission, please carefully verify that your poster sketch is provided in the correct format. Specifically, please closely check that your submission adheres to all of the following points:

  • Carefully read the authors guidelines above and make sure you follow them when preparing your final submission;
  • The typesetting of your poster sketch needs to closely follow the guidelines in the template. You must use the camera-ready format, i.e., with authors and acknowledgments included, etc. (your final version, for example, should not include any page numbers);
  • All fonts should be embedded within the final paper PDF (this is a requirement of the publisher);
  • Make sure that the images that you include are not downsampled, but in high resolution.
  • Your final paper submission should adhere to the length restrictions specified in the formatting instructions.
