Call: Workshop on Visualization in Computational Science at ICCS2010

Workshop on Visualization in Computational Science at ICCS2010

This workshop is co-located with the 10th International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS2010), May 31st – June 2nd, 2010, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.


Researchers in computational science generate data faster than we can make sense of that data. In computer simulations and lab experiments, data sets are generated that not only increase in size but also in complexity while the techniques to analyze them are either non-existent or ill-posed. In these cases visualization is an indispensable method to detect structure and patterns in these data sets. This includes the development of increasingly advanced visualization algorithms that map data features to visual constructs, user-friendly human-computer interaction that encourages interactive visual exploration, and computing architectures that improve the use and responsiveness of interactive graphics displays. Significant progress has been made over the last decades but many challenges still remain. The goal of this workshop is to bring together visualization researchers and end-users to illustrate the state of the art and advance potential areas of common interest.


Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:

Visualization in Computational `X´ where `X´ is Biology, Chemistry, Finance, Medicine, (Astro)Physics, etc.

Scientific visualization, Information visualization, Visual Data Analysis,

The Value of Visualization, Quantifying Effectiveness,

Virtual and Augmented Reality, Human-Computer Interaction, Interactive Graphics Displays,

Problem Solving Environments for modeling, simulation and visualization,

Distributed visualization, Collaborative visualization, Grid/Services-based visualization.


We cordially invite you to submit a paper presenting the results of original research or innovative practical applications of Visualization in Computational Science.

All papers will be peer reviewed. Papers accepted for workshops will be published in the ICCS 2010 Proceedings. After the Conference, some papers presented at the Workshop will be considered for publication in appropriate journals as Special Issues with the Workshop organiser as the Guest Editor of the journal.

Full papers are due December 20th, 2010. Papers are at most 10 pages in length, camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of Procedia Computer Science (for formatting information see for text/latex and for MSword). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. PostScript and source versions of your paper must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system. Please make sure to select this workshop when you submit!

Authors are notified of acceptance by February 15, 2010, and camera ready papers are due March 1, 2010.

Early registration opens February 15, 2010 and closes March 31, 2010.
