EUROVIS 2018 Workshop on Molecular Graphics and Visual Analysis of Molecular Data

Call For Papers
Workshop at the EUROVIS 2019
The workshop will be held in Porto, Portogal, June 3th, 2019 as part of EuroVis 2019.

Molecular visualization is one of the oldest branches of scientific visualization, which has been developing for over 50 years. Due to the continuous advances in both computational biology and computer graphics techniques, molecular graphics and visualization are still very active areas of research. Not only the ever-increasing dataset sizes yield a constant challenge for visual analysis, but also new technologies like advances in web-based graphics or augmented and virtual reality open new possibilities. In this half-day workshop, which is held for the second time in conjunction with EuroVis, we would like to initiate a multidisciplinary meeting which brings visualization researchers together working with molecular data.

Whereas molecular graphics is an established topic since many years, the hybrid-dimensional visual analysis of molecular structures is still a quite new research field with a lot of potential. We would like to encourage submissions especially using new technologies, such as immersive analytics-related approaches.

We invite short papers as well as full papers (2-4 pages for short and up to 8 pages for full papers, both with an additional page reserved for references). All papers will undergo a single-stage, double-blind peer review process. Accepted papers will be published in the EG digital library. The workshop will be held in Porto, Portugal, June 3th, 2019 as part of EuroVis 2019.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Molecular Graphics
  • Visual Analysis of Molecular Data (e.g., molecular structures, biological networks and pathways, or omics data)
  • Visualization of Dynamic Molecular Data
  • Visualization of Large Molecular Systems
  • Web-based Molecular Graphics and Visualization
  • Immersive Analytics approaches using, e.g., VR/AR technologies
  • Tools papers describing new molecular visualization tools or novel features in existing tools
