We are very happy to announce that EuroRV³, the international EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization continues in 2015. The third edition will be co-located with EuroVis 2015 in Cagliari, Italy and take place on May 25-26, 2015. This year’s edition with the topic “Reproducibility in Practice” will concentrate on developing a good understanding of the value of reproducibility “in the wild” and why reproducibility is still often neglected in visualization research. We will discuss ways to achieve higher reproducibility and how conditions could be improved to overcome complications and pitfalls in this regard. In addition, it should be showcased how good reproducibility can be achieved and what efforts this takes. We will soon publish a call for contributions, so stay tuned and check our website EuroRVVV.org.
Finally, EuroRV³ starts today at 2pm with a Keynote by Torsten Möller. We hope you all safely arrive in Leipzig. From Hauptbahnhof take the Tram line 3 until the stop “Torgauer/Permoserstraße” or a taxi directly to Leipzig Kubus. We have packed an interesting program for the upcoming two days and are hoping for many fruitful discussions.
The program of the EuroRV³ is now finalized and can be found at http://www.eurorvvv.org/program/. We are looking forward to two exciting days and want to provide a unique place to see new and well-known faces supporting reproducibility, verification, and validation in visualization. The keynote, opening the workshop on Monday, will be held by Torsten Möller and has the topic “Evaluation in Science vs. Design — A Visualization Perspective”. On Tuesday, the workshop will be closed by a panel about the future of RV³ and a capstone from Gordon Kindlmann about “Fairly Sharing the Costs of Reproducibility: Precedents and Possibilities”.
Registration for EuroVis 2013 and the associated workshops, e.g. EuroRV³, is open now. Please visit http://www.eurovis2013.de/content/registration to get the early-bird rate till April 29th and book accommodation. A rough time plan for the whole conference is already published at http://eurovis2013.de/content/preliminary-program and the detailed EuroRV³ program will be published at the beginning of May. The EuroRV³ team is looking forward to an exciting week.
The submission for EuroRV³ is now open over the Precision Conference System. Deadline for all submissions is March 8, 2013 (23:59 UTC/GMT). This year’s workshop invites short papers (4 pages without references, 5 pages including references) and panel proposals (2 pages), see submission page for more details. All accepted short papers will be presented at the workshop and published in the Eurographics Digital Librabry. The best papers will be selected after the workshop and invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of Computing and Visualization in Science.
As promised in Vienna, EuroRV³ the EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization continues and will be even more exciting in 2013. This year we will have a special focus on Human-centered Visualization, see the call for papers for more details. Besides we still solicit contributions on recent and future developments related to the reproducibility of newly developed visualization approaches, the verification of visualization and data-processing systems, the validation of visualization paradigms, and the effective incorporation of each of these into modern visualizations. This year’s workshop invites short papers (4 pages without references, 5 pages including references) and panel proposals (2 pages). The submission deadline is March 8, 2013. All accepted papers will be published in the Eurographics Digital Library and selected papers will be published in a special issue of Computing and Visualization in Science.
All those who unfortunately missed last year’s event can still catch up with the electronic proceedings including slides and videos.
The first EuroRVVV was a big success and we are grateful for the support of the EuroVis chairs and all attendees. The invited talks provided a good introduction to the topic and impulses for interesting discussions. Many aspects and challenges for the facilitation of reproducibility were discussed in the following panel. A consensus among the participants was the need for further pursuing the topic and establishing a related community platform. This could effectively result in a stimulus for the whole community and a faster propagation of new visualization approaches into relevant application areas.
We are also happy to provide the slides of the talks, which can be found with the program. The videos of the sessions will be uploaded soon, so stay tuned. Finally, we are even more happy to announce that there will be a EuroRVVV in 2013, co-organized by Robert S. Laramee, Mike Kirby, and Paul Rosenthal. Details will follow soon.
Now, that the EuroVis week is rapidly approaching we are happy to announce the finalization of the EuroRVVV 2012 program. We will have a set of three talks, two from the vis community and one from a cognitive psychologist, in the early morning. The second session will be a panel where we discuss possibilities for establishing a “Badge of Honor” for reproducibility with the community and a group of highly acknowledged panelists. We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna and making a significant step towards better reproducibility, verification, and validation in visualization.
