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.

* 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.
Following the development regarding the COVID-19 situation the poster session will be held in a virtual form using a video conference platform. At least one author of an accepted poster must register for the conference to present the work. The authors of accepted posters will also be required to send a brief video summary of their poster content.
While the details are still discussed, it is very likely that the fees for publishing a poster as part of the Eurovis proceedings will be significantly lower this year in comparison to the regular registration fees.
Both a PDF version of the poster and the extended abstract will be included 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!

For any question concerning poster submissions please contact the Poster Co-Chairs: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
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.
- Format — The video you prepare should be optimally 1920×1080 non-interlaced video with stereo audio. The video should be compressed with the h264 codec and the audio should be uncompressed or losslessly compressed. We will reprocess audio with normalization and equalization so that all videos will be at the same level to avoid the need for the audience to change the audio level between different videos. The container format should be AVI. Do not heavily compress the video since clarity is very important. Try to keep the video under 50MB to ensure smooth playback.
- Length — The poster fast-forward video has to be 30 seconds long.
- Filename — PosterNumber-PresenterName.avi/mp4
- Submission — The submission will be done via dropbox or PCS.
- Deadline — Submission of the video must be completed by Sunday, May 10. This is to allow time for the organizers to preprocess the audio streams of all the videos and to distribute and configure the systems for playback.
- Template — There is no specific template.
- Content — First, include a title slide at the beginning of the video. You are welcome to talk over it but ensure it is visible for long enough for the viewer to read at least the title of the poster. The exact style of the video is up to the authors of the poster. It may contain text slides, images and/or a video clip as well as a voice-over (with or without the presenter being visible).
- Audio — When recording audio please ensure that you use a good quality microphone, in a suitably quiet environment (computer fans are a notorious problem if recording directly to a computer) and record at a high sample rate (44/48kHz) and level to avoid poor quality or distortion problems in the audio. Do not be afraid to use multiple takes to ensure a clear, concise description. Be aware that when reading from a script many presenters can sound a little ‘flat’ and monotone, so try to sound natural and as if you are making the text up as you go along even though it may be prepared in advance and written down.
