Opening keynote speaker confirmed!

We are thrilled to announce that Prof. Dr. Hans-Christian Hege, head of the Visual Data Analysis department at Zuse Institute Berlin, Germany, has agreed to give an opening keynote at this year’s EuroRV³ workshop.  The department performs research in visual data analysis and develops software such as Amira/Avizo, and Hans-Christian is known for many exciting contributions to research, not in the least to uncertainty visualization, which will be the topic of his opening keynote.

“Making Uncertainties Explicit”.

Abstract: Data comes either from measurements that directly capture properties of reality, or from simulations that provide properties of models that represent the parts of reality. All data, with a few exceptions, is subject to uncertainties. In the computational processes during data analysis additional uncertainties might creep in. When drawing conclusions from data, e.g. when testing hypotheses or making decisions, significant uncertainties need to be considered. In visualizations, such uncertainties should therefore be indicated or, if desired by the user, presented in detail. This requires two basic capabilities: (i) quantification of uncertainties and (ii) visualization of quantified uncertainties. The presentation discusses the different types of uncertainties and provides a brief overview of formal means of representing and quantifying uncertainties. It will be explained, how uncertainties propagate along the visualization pipeline and where additional uncertainties might slip in. Examples will be presented of how data afflicted with uncertainties can be visualized. Finally, various challenges in visually supported analysis of uncertain data will be discussed.

We are looking forward to start the EuroRV3 workshop with this great keynote by Hans-Christian in Brno!

EuroRV³ 2018 Keynote Speaker Confirmed!

We are very pleased to announce that Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Westermann, head of the chair for Computer Graphics and Visualization and one of the main drivers of the Visual Computing and Computer Games initiatives at Technische Universität München, Germany, has agreed to give a keynote at this year’s EuroRV³ workshop. One of the many exciting research topics that Rüdiger is working on uncertainty and Ensemble Visualization, and his keynote will be on this very topic:

“Ensemble Visualization – Visualizing the uncertainty that is represented by an ensemble of fields”.

Abstract: Each member of an ensemble simulation shows a possible occurrence of one or several physical fields, and domain experts are concerned with analyzing the uncertainty that is represented by these fields. Due to the sheer volume of such ensembles, their inherent spatial and temporal aspects, as well as the complex spatio-temporal relations between features in these fields, classical data mining and statistical analysis techniques become increasingly limited. While simple analysis tasks, like finding commonalities or differences at fixed locations in space and time, can be realized in an automated way, a meaningful and intuitive depiction of the uncertainty that is carried by an ensemble is challenging. When directional quantities and spatio-temporal relations between ensemble members have to be analyzed, the limitations of available techniques become even more severe and new approaches are required. In this talk I will shed light on the relation between ensemble and uncertainty visualization, and I will discuss a variety of visualization techniques for scalar- and vector-valued ensemble fields. This is followed by a summary of current and future challenges in ensemble visualization.

We are looking forward to hearing this exciting keynote by Rüdiger in Brno!

EuroRV³ 2018 Call for Papers Online

We have finalized the call for papers for the sixth EuroRV³, which will again be held in conjunction with EuroVis, this year in Brno, Czech Republic, June 4, 2018. This year’s workshop concentrates is subtitled “Uncertainty in Visualization”. We solicit short papers, which will be peer-reviewed in a one-stage process and electronically published in the Eurographics Digital Library. A new addition for this year’s call is that we also welcome position papers, in which authors have an opportunity to state opinions, present controversial arguments, show on-going work, or share thoughts for future directions.

The submission deadline is March 5th, 2018. See the submission page for further details.

EuroRV³ 2018 Announcement
