Call for Short Papers

For the second time, EuroVis 2013 features a short paper track. The purpose of this track is to present late-breaking results, work in progress, and follow-up extensions or evaluations of existing methods. Short papers will be peer-reviewed in a one-stage process by an international program committee. They will be electronically archived and are fully citable publications. Submissions for the short paper track should be 4 pages (at most), excluding references, and 5 pages (at most), in total. They will be orally presented at the conference. EuroVis 2013 will be held in Leipzig, Germany, June 17-21, 2013.

Please note that we encourage authors of short papers on workshop topics to submit to the respective workshop ( see

A EuroVis short paper describes a more focused and concise research contribution and is likely to have a smaller -- yet still significant -- scope of contribution than a full paper. Short papers draw from the same paper types as full papers, as well as the same list of suggested topics. The following descriptive examples, which are characterized in contrast to full papers, may be helpful in understanding what kinds of submissions may be suitable for short papers:

  • A new visualization technique or system and evidence of
    its utility compared to known techniques or systems
    (described in sufficient detail to assist an expert reader
    in replicating the technique or system, but without
    exhaustive implementation detail and evaluation).
  • An incremental improvement or variation of an existing
    visualization technique or system with convincing
  • An extensive evaluation of an existing visualization
    technique or system.
  • A well-proven counter-example to an existing
    visualization technique that helps to understand
  • A new implementation approach that has demonstrably
    addressed a significant technical issue
    (without extensive evaluation of the implementation).
  • A new methodology for designing or studying visualization
    systems that has demonstrable benefits for the EuroVis
    community (without extensive evaluation of the

All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any conference proceedings, magazine, journal, or edited book.
