Aims and Scope
EG VCBM 2021 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 future research and cooperation.
This year’s posters will be presented in a hybrid poster session. Details will follow.
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.
- Posters demoing an application that may show an application or tool that either addresses challenges for developing visual computing solutions or helping domain scientists. This work does not necessarily present uniquely new ideas as long as the application or tool presents an interesting view.
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
The submission to the poster track at EG VCBM consists of a 1 – 2 page abstract and must include at least one figure. The poster abstracts will be reviewed by the poster conference chairs and the abstracts of the accepted posters will be included on the VCBM 2021 webpage. The material from the poster can be re-used for a full paper submission somewhere else. This act is not to be considered as self-plagiarism. At least one author of an accepted poster must 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. The submission link will be provided soon.
Poster review will be single-blind only, so please make sure your poster submissions include authors’ names, affiliations, and acknowledgments.
