VisGap - The Gap between Visualization Research and Visualization Software
Monday, June 12, 2023 · 2pm to 6pm, CEST · Leipzig, Germany
Held in conjunction with EuroVis 2023.
Over the years, many visualization methods and tools have been developed and published by the visualization research community. However, most of these are prototypes and never reach a state that can be reliably used by the target audience, e.g., domain scientists. Also, availability of these prototypes as source code or at least as executables is still the exception rather than the norm. The VisGap Symposium aims to shed a light on this gap between research and practical applicability, examine the obstacles every researcher faces, and propose solutions to overcome this problem as a community.
VisGap aims at gathering experts from all over the visualization community in order to advance the way our field works with software, sustains software, and values the effort our members put into developing said software. The scope of VisGap also includes reproducibility and replicability. Both are cornerstones of the scientific method and essential for building trust in visualizations and increasing their acceptance, ultimately fostering adoption in the wild.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
We solicit papers with 4-8 pages in the VisGap 2023 latex style (see above for the scope of the workshop), with an additional page allowed for references. All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any conference proceedings, magazine, journal, or edited book or must present a substantial extension of previous work (at least 30%). Papers are to be submitted via PCS. Please find the LaTeX template here
All submissions will undergo a single-blind, single-stage peer review process. Accepted papers will be published by the Eurographics Association, and be stored in the Eurographics Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and participate in the VisGap 2023 workshop to present the accepted work.
All papers must be submitted through PCS (https://new.precisionconference.com/). (Society: Eurographics; Conference/Journal: VisGap 2023)
