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.

In addition, accepted papers and posters have, for the first time this year, the opportunity to be presented in a live demo session.  This unique opportunity to present the results of current research live to a large audience of experts is intended to promote not only fruitful expert discussions, but also the possibility of new collaborations.

Aims and Scope

We are also pleased that this year we accept the following types of posters:

  • Original, application-oriented research posters that advance the fusion of visual computing methods within medicine and biology, according to the general call that can be found here.
  • Research overview posters summarizing biomedical visualization research on topics below. This is an excellent way to highlight, for example, the research carried out in the scope of a PhD project, to promote PhD direction discussions with experts, or to present activities of a specific research group.
  • Research group overview posters presenting the current research work of an entire group or a research center. The scope of such a poster can also include upcoming funded projects and thus even indicate open vacancies.
  • Posters describing an open research problem that may have been defined by a domain scientist (e.g., a physician or biologist). This is a unique opportunity to present an exciting research problem to a broad professional audience and to promote new collaborations.

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

Submission Instructions

The submission to the poster track at EG VCBM consists of a ½ – 1-page abstract (9pt, 12px, or 0.75em) optionally including pictures. The references and images do not count into the page limit (i.e., you can have an extra page with references). The poster abstracts 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 abstract submissions including authors names, affiliations, and acknowledgments to

Please use the following LateX style for poster abstract submissions:
Please note that the template was updated on 16.7.2019. Build your PDF using the new EGauthorGuidelines-vcbm19-poster.tex file.

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

The final posters should be printed on paper no larger than paper size A1 portrait (the absolute maximum is 68cm x 99cm, cf.
