Call for Posters

The posters track will present late-breaking results, work in progress, and follow-up extensions, application case studies, or evaluations of existing methods. In particular, it provides young researchers, especially postgraduate students, with valuable opportunities to receive feedback from other researchers and engage in stimulating discussions.

Submission Instructions

We solicit poster submissions in the form of a sketch (i.e., an extended abstract of at most 2 pages in the EuroVis poster format, with an additional page allowed for references only). We strongly encourage the submission of additional materials. For example, you can submit an additional PDF (without any page limit) that contains a number of example results, screenshots, an interaction sequence, etc. The poster draft can also be added as additional material (but is not mandatory for the submission). Finally, submissions can also include supplementary material such as videos or executable programs. In particular for interactive tools/approaches, a digital video is essential and thus strongly encouraged to allow the reviewers to assess the interactive aspects.

Poster sketches are to be submitted using the Precision Conference System, according to the instructions on the submission guidelines section.

At least one author of an accepted poster must attend the conference to present the work, and authors will also be required to present a brief (less than one-minute) summary of their poster content at the opening preview session (also called fast-forward).

Both a PDF version of the poster and the extended abstract will be included on the conference USB stick and also in the EG digital library with a DOI. The material in a poster/sketch can later be reused by the original authors for a more extensive publication (e.g., a full paper) with more detailed content and mature results, without being considered self-plagiarism.

Any accepted posters are required to have at least one (paid) registered author to attend and present the poster at the conference.

For detailed poster preparation and submission instructions please refer to the submission guidelines!

Submission Guidelines

Formatting Instructions

In order to submit to EuroVis 2021 posters, authors prepare their submission as a 2-page PDF file (“sketch”) using the EuroVis 2021 LaTeX2e Style (including a document class, a style file, a sample source file, and a corresponding PDF output file). On Overleaf this template can be imported easily by selecting “New Project” -> “Upload Project” and uploading the zip file. Use EGauthorGuidelines-eurovis21-poster.tex for your submission.

Please make sure that an image embedded in your poster sketch does not contain transparent pixels (i.e., an alpha channel of a transparent color), because this will lead to problems when the resulting PDF is displayed or printed.

Submissions can also include supplementary material such as videos or executable programs. The server will accept uploads of at most 200 MB, so multiple files of over 200 MB must be submitted separately. We encourage the use of digital videos to support poster submissions, particularly if part of, or all of the work covers interactive techniques. Please use only the most common video codecs (e.g., MP4 format using the H.264 codec) to maximize the chances that the reviewers can see it.

A poster draft can also be added as additional material but is not mandatory for the submission. The final posters should be printed on paper no larger than paper size A0 (or A1) portrait (84.1cm x 118.9cm = 33.1in x 46.8in, cf. )

Poster sketches are submitted using the Precision Conference System (PCS).

Author Guidelines

EuroVis 2021 poster submissions will undergo a one-stage double-blind review process. Author identities will be hidden from the external reviewers. Authors should therefore not include their name or institution on the cover page of the initial submission, and should make an effort to ensure that there is no self-revealing information in the text. However, you will still need to provide a complete list of authors when submitting your poster so that members of the program committee can avoid conflicts of interest during reviewer assignment. All authors must be specified in the submission system (but not in the sketch or poster draft) at the time of the submission. Adding additional authors after the acceptance of a poster is not acceptable.

We expect that the submissions will clearly discuss the novel and significant contributions as well as place them in the context of prior art in the field.

At least one author of an accepted poster must attend the conference to present the work, and authors will also be required to present a brief (less than one-minute) summary of their poster content at the opening preview session (also called fast-forward).

Contributions must be written and presented in English.

Our conference will adhere to the following ethics guidelines for reviewers, which can be found on the Reviewer Guidelines page.

Camera-Ready Guidelines

We ask authors of accepted papers and posters to submit their final material by the camera ready deadline through the PCS. To do so, please go to “submissions in progress”. There, you can upload your final submission. Additionally, you may update your supplementary material. Make sure that you provide all required information in PCS. Authors of accepted posters are also requested to fill in the Exclusive License Agreement (one per poster) and send the signed document to For your camera-ready manuscript submission, please carefully verify that your paper is provided in the correct format. Specifically, please closely check that your paper adheres to all of the following points:

  • Carefully read the authors guidelines above and make sure you follow them when preparing your final submission;
  • The typesetting of your paper needs to closely follow the guidelines in the template. You must use the camera-ready format, i.e., with authors and acknowledgments included, etc. (your final version, for example, should not include any page numbers);
  • All fonts should be embedded within the final paper PDF (this is a requirement of the publisher);
  • Make sure that the images that you include are not downsampled, but in high resolution (otherwise, their reproduction in the printed journal issue will not be high quality).
  • The publisher remarks that it would be good to have the included images in the CMYK color model;
  • Your final paper submission should adhere to the length restrictions specified in the formatting instructions for the respective paper types.
