Workshop on Molecular Graphics and Visual Analysis of Molecular Data

3rd Workshop on Molecular Graphics and Visual Analysis of Molecular Data

May 25th, 2020, Norrköping, Sweden (co-located with EuroVis & Eurographics 2020)


Call for Papers

Molecular visualization and graphics 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 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. This half-day multidisciplinary workshop - which is held in conjunction with EuroVis for the third time and with Eurographics for the first time - brings together visualization and computer graphics researchers working with molecular data.

Whereas molecular graphics is an established topic for 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 or ML-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 Norrköping, Sweden, May 25th, 2020, as part of EuroVis & Eurographics 2020.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

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