Call for Papers 2016

For the fourth time, EuroRV³, the EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization, will be held in conjunction with EuroVis, this year in Groningen, the Netherlands, June 6-7, 2016. The general purpose of this workshop is to develop a common sense of good reproducibility in the visualization community. Workshop papers will be peer-reviewed in a one-stage process by an international program committee. They will be electronically published in the Eurographics Digital Library and are fully citable publications. Submissions for the EuroRV³ track should be 4 pages (at most), excluding references, and 5 pages (at most), in total. They will be orally presented at the workshop. More details can be found at the submission page.


This year, the workshop is subtitled “From Medical Visualization Concepts to Certified Applications” and we encourage authors to share both positive and negative experiences that could be beneficial to the visualization community regarding – but not limited – to the following topics:

  • reproducibility of visualization algorithms, especially in medical environments
  • experiences with the validation or verification of medical visualization, medical image processing, segmentation, feature detection, or feature tracking algorithms
  • experiences with certification procedures of existing software or design decisions to ensure easier certification of software regarding governmental regulations or other standards
  • visualization-related national or international standards for approving software in critical environments, such as for medical applications
  • evaluation of existing visualization techniques or systems regarding certification or verification
  • new implementation approaches that have demonstrably addressed significant technical issues
  • new methodologies for designing or studying visualization systems that have demonstrable benefits for the visualization community

In addition, we solicit short papers that address the core questions of the field of reliability in visualization. This includes

  • the reproducibility of newly developed visualization approaches
  • the verification of visualization and data-processing systems
  • the validation of the used visualization paradigms
  • the incorporation of such reliability aspects into visualizations
