Submission deadline is February 26th, 2016 and submissions are handled through the SRM system. See the submission page for further details.

EuroRV³ 2016 Announcement

We are very happy to announce that EuroRV³, the international EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization continues in 2016. The fourth edition will be co-located with EuroVis 2016 in Groningen, the Netherlands and take place on June 6-7, 2016. This year’s edition with the topic “From Medical Visualization Concepts to Certified Applications” will concentrate on sharing both positive and negative experiences that could be beneficial to the visualization community, especially regarding reliable visualization for medical applications. We will soon publish a call for contributions, so stay tuned and check our website

IEEE Vis Meetup – MeetRV3 – Outcome

We had a very inspiring and productive meetup about directions for further rewarding reproducibility in visualization. The audience was very diverse and discussed from very different viewpoints the possible directions in this regard. A collection of the findings and opinions of the meetup was collected in a common document. The organizers and a group of committed people will pursue the found directions and try to establish concrete methods for rewards in the future.

IEEE Vis Meetup – MeetRV3 – Today

Today we will have a meetup at IEEE Vis to develop a common sense of good reproducibility in our community with the title “MeetRV3: Towards a System for Rewarding Reproducibility in Visualization”. The meetup will take place in SALON 2 on the third floor at 12:30 pm. The goal of the meetup is to review and discuss efforts of other communities to promote reproducibility to come up with a common direction for the visualization community. We hope to find a consentient way to honor well-reproducible work and strengthen the community in its effort to establish a common culture of reproducibility.

IEEE Vis Meetup

There will be a meetup at this year’s IEEE Vis in Chicago, following the developments at EuroRV³ regarding reproducibility in visualization. The meetup will be held on Tuesday, October 27, at 12:30pm in SALON 2 and will facilitate discussions towards a system for rewarding reproducibility in visualization. We are looking forward to your input. All updates will be shared at

EuroRV³ 2015 Papers Online

The co-chairs of EuroRV³ 2015 thank all contributors and visitors of the workshop for making the event a great success with inspiring talks and long, intense, and productive discussions. This effort was a major step into establishing a common culture of reproducibility in the visualization community. All papers can be downloaded from now on in the Eurographics Digital Library.

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.

Important Dates

  • Indication of Contribution: February 20, 2015
  • Submission of Extended Abstract: March 20, 2015
  • Submission of Camera Ready Version: April 03, 2015
