In 2009, Eurographics will have a special focus on Computational Graphics, aiming at the creation of hardware graphics acceleration pipelines for new graphics techniques and systems, and on Interactive Visual Exploration of Heterogeneous Geospatial Information. In this way, Eurographics 2009 aims at promoting geospatial information systems as one of the driving applications for computer graphics techniques, and it acknowledges the efforts that have been put into the development of new architectures for visual computing and rendering.

List of Topics

Computational Graphics

  • Hybrid screen/object-space rendering pipelines
  • Adaptive GPU data structures
  • Adaptive space rasterization
  • Hybrid CPU-GPU rendering
  • Multi-GPU rendering
  • Parallel Graphics
  • Multiview perspective rendering
  • Performance evaluation of GPU and multicore rendering


Interactive Visual Exploration of Heterogeneous Geospatial Information

  • Interactive visualization of large 2D and 2.5D geospatial information
  • Geospatial visualization on mobile devices
  • Information visualization applied to geospatial data
  • Geo-mashup of heterogeneous data sources
  • Geographic information systems with added-value information
  • Visual analytics of geospatial information
  • Visualization of spatial and non-spatial context
  • Time varying data and data history
  • Uncertainty visualization and visualization of incomplete data
  • Visual fusion of conflicting or merging of incomplete data
  • Data representation, compression, and procedural modeling for geospatial data
  • Geospatial aspects of social networks
  • User studies, human factors, evaluation of interaction techniques

Accepted papers will be presented at Eurographics 2009 as a full oral presentation, and they will be published in the Areas Papers proceedings. Authors are invited to submit contributions that might be difficult to position as a regular or a short paper because they are too much oriented towards the application or address emergent, yet preliminary ideas on the future of hardware graphics acceleration pipelines and geospatial visualization.

The submission deadline for areas papers is December 11, 2008.

For any question concerning areas papers submissions please contact the areas programme co-chairs:

Submission Details

Submitted areas papers should be formatted according to the Eurographics Areas publication style. For submission purposes, you should submit a paper of up to 8 pages in length according to the submission guidelines. Anonymous submissions will be made electronically through the Eurographics online submission system. Please indicate the area to which your work is submitted.
