The 25th EG Conference on Visualization (EuroVis) 2023 invites proposals for panels and tutorials.
Panels at EuroVis should address current and controversial topics relevant for the participants of the conference. In particular, we invite panels that spark discussions about issues that are either often overlooked or only now emerging. To that end, panels should strive to present and debate a wide array of diverging opinions and perspectives on a current topic in visualization.
Panel topics could for example
- address cross-cutting issues in visualization (e.g., reproducibility or teaching);
- give a voice to the users and readers of visualization;
- cast a light on societal aspects of visualization (e.g., accessibility or inclusion);
- discuss the pros and cons of different visualization career paths.
Panelists should be experts in their fields who bring a unique, refreshing, or rarely heard point of view to the panel discussion and who can engage the audience and each other in a lively scholarly debate.
Panels at EuroVis 2023 will have a format of a 90-minute-long moderated discussion among panelists, also allowing for interaction with the conference attendees. Long opening statements are discouraged. We further recommend that the panel organizer/moderator is not one of the panel members.
Panel proposals should not only describe the topic but also address ways how to achieve a controversial discussion, how to limit self-presentations, and how to integrate the audience. For more details see the Submission Guidelines below.
Tutorials are an excellent opportunity to offer training on newly emerging topics in the field of visualization, e.g., on visualization tools, technologies, and methods. It is expected that tutorials will address an audience with a varied range of interests and backgrounds: beginners, developers, designers, researchers, practitioners, users, and lecturers.
We invite tutorials that include, for example
- cross-cutting topics in visualization research and practice (e.g., using color or conducting user studies)
- topics bridging multiple areas (e.g., mobile visualization or interaction design for visualization);
- applications of visualization in various domains and to various forms of data;
- themes outside of the standard visualization curriculum (e.g., eye tracking or immersive visualization)
Tutorial speakers should be experts in their fields who can combine theoretical foundations and practical hands-on examples into a high-quality in-depth learning experience.
Tutorials at EuroVis 2023 will have a format of 180 minutes with a coffee break in between. The structure of the tutorials is flexible and should orient itself on the tutorial contents. We recommend a mix of presentation techniques like quizzes, practical exercises, and Q&A to engage the participants and create a lively atmosphere.
Tutorial proposals should not only describe the topic but also address ways how to achieve an engaging setting for learning that encourages questions and discussions, how to limit the share of frontal lecture-style instruction, and how to provide learning paths and pointers for further self-study after the tutorial. For more details see the Submission Guidelines below.
Proposals should not exceed 3 pages, and they should be submitted via PCS at https://new.precisionconference.com/submissions. Choose “Make a new submission to” -> “Eurographics” -> “EuroVis 2023” -> “EuroVis 2023 Panel Tutorial”. Proposals should be submitted as a PDF file using the EuroVis 2023 LaTeX2e Style template. On Overleaf this template can be imported easily by selecting “New Project” -> “Upload Project” and then uploading the zip file. Use EGauthorGuidelines-eurovis23-poster.tex for your submission. Accepted panels and tutorials are required to prepare a short abstract for the conference program.
All proposals should include:
- Title and Abstract
- Intended Audience: background knowledge, career stage, subdomain of visualization if applicable
- Description of the topic: motivation, relevance to the EuroVis conference, aspects to be covered
- Description of the organization: proposed structure, time allocation, materials provided
- List of potential panelists / Bios of tutorial speakers
- Previous Editions: if the panel/tutorial was conducted before, where and when was it conducted?
- Equipment needed to run the panel/tutorial
Proposals for panels and tutorials will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Fit within the scope of the EuroVis 2023 conference
- Qualification of the panel organizer/tutorial speaker
- Likely attendance of the panel/tutorial
- Timeliness of the topic
- Diversity of the panel/tutorial speaker lineup in terms of nationality, institution, gender, visualization background, and career stage
Submission Deadline: February 24, 2023 (Friday)
Notification Deadline: March 17, 2023 (Friday)
