2012 Recap and Slides

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.

2012 Preliminary Program

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.

Birth of EuroRVVV

EuroVis 2012 will not only be accompanied by EuroVA but also by a new workshop, the EuroRVVV: EuroVis Workshop on Reproducibility, Verification, and Validation in Visualization. This workshop will pay special consideration to the fact that the need for reliable visualization is steadily growing. We will 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 all these aspects into visualizations.

Those topics will be tackled by a series of invited talks. The following panel discussion will concentrate on finding a way to establish a mechanism for promoting a culture of reproducibility in visualization.
