Call for Posters

EG VCBM solicits the submission of original, application-oriented research posters that advance the fusion of visual computing methods within medicine and biology.

Suggested topics for posters include, but are not limited to:

  • Visual computing solutions for medical applications like radiology, surgery, pathology,  cardiology, nephrology, neurology, etc., including medical education.
  • Visual computing solutions for applications that support biomedical research in systems biology, *omics research, molecular pathology, neuroanatomy, biomedical imaging, etc.
  • Medical simulation and visual computing solutions that support new approaches in computational medicine, including also the uses of stereoscopy and haptics.
  • Visualization approaches for data from new or challenging imaging modalities including real-time imaging (e.g., ultrasound).
  • Visual computing solutions in the context of the virtual physiological human.

Methods might include, but are not limited to:

  • Visualization and analysis of all kinds of biomedical data (signals and images).
  • Visualization, mining and analysis of biomedical data collections, including cohort data.
  • Information visualization of medical data sets, e.g., electronic health records.
  • Computer models of biomechanical, physiological, and biochemical functions in living systems.
  • Fusion, analysis and visualization of heterogeneous and/or multi-source data.
  • Multi-scale methods and data structures for large data.
  • Interaction and design of visual computing workflows in medicine and biology.
  • Data tracking and registration.
  • Data reconstruction and geometry extraction.
  • Real time rendering and interaction with anatomy models.

In addition, we welcome research overview posters summarizing biomedical visualization research on topics above. This is an excellent way to highlight for example the work done in the scope of a PhD project, to promote PhD direction discussion with experts, or to present activities of a specific research group.

Information for Authors

EG VCBM 2019 continues the poster track to enable researchers to present their work in progress, minor improvements beyond the state-of-the-art, and the best results of the undergraduate student projects in the area of visual computing for biology and medicine. Accepted posters will be placed in the workshop area during the time of the event, and the program will feature a dedicated poster session where the authors have the opportunity to present their research and lead fruitful discussions with peer researchers that will inspire for future research and cooperation.

Submission Instructions

The submission to the poster track at EG VCBM consists of an abstract with a maximum length of 2 pages, optionally including pictures.

The posters will be reviewed by the poster conference chairs and the abstracts of the accepted posters will be included in the conference publications.

The material from the poster can be re-used for a full paper submission somewhere else and this act is not to be considered as a self-plagiarism.

Authors of the accepted posters are expected to bring their poster to the conference, register for the conference participation, and present their work at the poster at the time of the poster session.

Please submit your non-anonymized poster submissions including authors names, affiliations, and acknowledgments to posters-vcbm2018@eg.org.

Please use the following LateX style for poster abstract submissions: egpublstyle-vcbm2018-poster.zip. The abstract should be a maximum of 2 pages including images and references.

Poster review will not be double-blind, so please make sure your poster submissions including authors names, affiliations, and acknowledgments.
