EuroRV³ 2015 Call for Contributions

The EuroRV3: EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization focuses on the need for reliable visualization. We concentrate 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.

The outcome of the two last EuroRV3 workshops was that the visualization community is clearly aware of the need for reproducibility and a vast majority agrees that the topic should be developed much more. However, it can be observed that, in current publications, providing reproducibility is still often limited to the fraction that is needed for the paper to be accepted to a venue. In addition, the variety of possible characteristics and levels of reproducibility, together with the very different paper types in our community, makes it very hard to come up with a strategy to further encourage good reproducibility. In this workshop with the topic “Reproducibility in Practice” we want to develop a good understanding of why there are still papers providing quite limited reproducibility, how these papers differ from papers that achieve much higher reproducibility and how conditions could be changed to overcome complications and the various different pitfalls in this regard. In addition, we want to showcase how good reproducibility can be achieved and what efforts this takes.

Submission Procedure

This year’s workshop invites contributions of authors from recent visualization publications about how the topic reproducibility was tackled by the authors in the context of the specific project or paper and why. Contributors should indicate their interest of submission via mail to Paul Rosenthal. All accepted contributors submit extended abstracts (up to 2 pages without references, 3 pages including references) following the submission guidelines, which will undergo a one-stage review cycle. All accepted final papers will be published in the Eurographics Digital Library.
