Call for Participation

The workshop "Visualization in Environmental Sciences 2022" (EnvirVis 2022) is a co-located event of EuroVis 2022 and invites both contributions in the field of visualization and visual data integration with a broad application area in environmental research.

Scope

In the previous years, research in environmental sciences has become more and more important as we are faced with increasing problems concerning climate change, water scarcity, pollution of the environment or changes in biodiversity. Visualization of complex monitoring or remote sensing data, or results from simulation of natural phenomena such as groundwater processes or migration of animal species under changing natural conditions is a crucial step for a better understanding of the measured data. It is essential for discovering correlations and communicate research results to the public. However, as data sets are often large and highly heterogeneous, visualization is a complex task. In addition, there are often large differences in the spatial and temporal resolution of data sets, the quality of measurements needs to be validated, inconsistencies between data sets need to found and - if possible - fixed, and multiple data sets might need to be integrated for numerical simulations. The amount of data and the heterogeneity of the information are also key challenges for simulation and the subsequent understanding of research results. Besides applying established visualization techniques to geoscientific data, advances are also made with the help of high-performance computing, virtual reality environments as well as specialized hardware.

The workshop "Visualization in Environmental Sciences" invites both contributions in the fields of scientific visualization and visual data integration with a broad application area in environmental research. The proposed scope includes, but is not limited to, the following areas of research:

Date and Location

The EnvirVis workshop will be held on June 13th, 2022 in conjunction with the EuroVis 2022 conference, preceding the main conference.

Submission Guidelines

Papers must be written in English and should have a length of 4 to 8 pages including references. A submissions has to be work that has not been published elsewhere previously.

Papers can be submitted using the Precision Conference Management System.

Publication

Papers will be published online at the Eurographics Digital Library. After the Workshop, the authors of selected papers will be offered publication in the Springer Journal "Environmental Earth Sciences", indexed both via Scopus and ISI.

Formatting Instructions

In order to submit the camera-ready EnvirVis 2022 Papers, authors need to prepare their submissions as a PDF file using the EnvirVis 2022 Papers LaTeX2e style. If you have any questions concerning the format please send us an e-mail.
