EuroVA 2012 is the third international Eurovis workshop on visual analytics held in Europe and aims at continuing the success of the previous editions, held in Bordeaux, France, on June 8th, 2010, and in Bergen, Norway, on May 31st, 2011. Also this year the goal of the workshop is to promote and advance the combination and integration of visualization and analytics methods for the purpose of problem solving in a variety of application domains including engineering, business, public policy, medicine, security, etc. EuroVA will be held on June 4th-5th, 2012, in Vienna, Austria, as a workshop of the annual EuroVis 2012 Conference.
The aim of the Promise Winter School on information retrieval and information visualization is to give participants a grounding in the core topics that constitute the multidisciplinary area of multilingual and multimedia information retrieval. Other topics of the school will include usability of systems, system evaluation, social media and several other related fields.
The school is a week-long event consisting of guest lectures from invited speakers who are recognized experts in the field of information retrieval and information visulization. [...]
This event is the oldes regular annual meeting of CG community in Central Europe. The spring conference attempts to cover interesting projects from computer graphics and image processing and their applications.
The philosophy of SCCG is to put together top experts with young researchers and to support a good communication channel for East-West exchange of prospective ideas. Young researchers are esp. encouraged to submit their work.
Short paper submissions, 4 pages in length (maximum), are solicited. Submitted short papers should clearly relate to visual analytics and show the integration of computational data analysis and interactive visualization. Short papers should address either focused mature and concise contributions or interesting preliminary results of work in progress; full paper contributions should be submitted to the EuroVis Symposium by November 26th, 2010.
The EuroVA 2011 Conference Proceedings will be published by the Eurographics Association.
TAVA ’11 addresses theoretical advances and practical applications of Visual Analytics. This is the sixth event in a series of special tracks on visualization topics organized in conjunction with the annual I- KNOW conference on Knowledge Management and Knowledge Technologies. Former events included the KIV (Knowledge and Information Visualisation) special tracks since I-KNOW ’03 and the KVD (Knowledge Visualisation and Discovery) special tracks since I-KNOW ’06. The focus of TAVA ’11 on Visual Analytics reflects the increasing scientific importance and the growing practical relevance of this exciting new discipline.
Visual analytics is the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces. One key aspect that separates visual analytics from other related fields (InfoVis, SciVis, HCI) is the focus on analytical reasoning. While the final products generated at from an analytical process are of great value, research has shown that the processes of the analysis themselves are just as important if not more so. These processes not only contain information on individual insights discovered, but also how the users arrive at these insights.
We are delighted to announce the call for participation in VIZBI 2011, the 2nd workshop on ‘Visualizing Biological Data’, to be held at the Broad Institute, Cambridge-MA (USA), March 16-18, 2011. VIZBI 2011 brings together scientists actively using or developing computational visualization to study a diverse range of biological data. As shown on the attached poster, they have assembled a list of high-profile speakers who will each review the state-of-the-art and challenges with visualization in their field. VIZBI 2011 also features an ‘art & science’ evening (Thursday) during which they will be joined by medical illustrators, graphic designers, and artists interested in biological visualization. On Saturday, March 19, immediately after the workshop, participants can choose from a range of tutorials and take part in a hands-on ‘bring-your-own-data’ session.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners that are developing and applying the state-of-the-art in visual analytics; to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the newest both mature and greenhouse ideas, research and developments in visual analytics and supporting disciplines, and to identify the short- and long-term research directions in the field and preferences of the potential end users.
We solicit papers that will introduce new research results, present forward-looking positional statements, or define relevant research challenges.
EuroVis 2011, i.e., the Eurographics/IEEE Symposium on Visualization, is annually organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization and the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee.
In 2011, the symposium is located in Bergen, Norway, continuing an already extensive series of earlier meetings, consisting of 12 EuroVis/VisSym events in the years 1999–2010 (most recently in Bordeaux, Berlin, Eindhoven, and Norrköping), as well as 9 EG ViSC Workshops in the years 1990 to 1998. Bergen is a historic port-town on the scenic west coast of Norway, also called the gateway to the fjords.
Important note: Early June is amongst the few very best weeks in the year to visit Bergen and it is very, very popular during this time – early booking of accommodation (before April!) is strongly recommended to avoid problems with the travel planning.
GeoViz calls for theoretical, experimental and applied papers that explore the links between geovisualization, spatial analysis and modeling. We encourage live demos and the discussion of ground-breaking work in its early stages. All together we will give time and space for a real workshop character.
