Visualization Showcase

This year we present the second edition of the Visualization Showcase. This track provides a forum for the year's most instrumental movies in parallel graphics and visualization. Finalists will compete for the Best Visualization Award, and each finalist will present his or her movie during a dedicated session at EGPGV '16 in a 10-minute presentation. Movies are judged based on how their movie illuminates science, by the quality of the movie, and for innovations in the process used for creating the movie. The accepted submissions will appear as short papers in the symposium proceedings.

Review and selection process

Submissions need to include a movie (up to 150MB in size) and a short paper (up to 4 pages including references). The short paper should describe the scientific story conveyed by the movie, how the visualization helps scientific discovery, and the "state-of-the-practice" information behind making the movie.

Each submission will be peer reviewed by the EGPGV International Program Committee. Criteria for revision include:

  • Compelling visualization
  • Visualizing data involving parallel graphics and/or visualization in a significant way (e.g., data size, parallel processing, parallel rendering)
  • Meaningful and compelling science story
  • Description of visualization techniques necessary to accomplish the movie
