Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine 2020 in Tübingen, Germany
We invite you to submit work in progress, preliminary results, research overview, or open research challenges to be presented as a poster. 
For detailed information please continue reading or see
== Important Dates ==
*) Poster abstract submission deadline: August 14, 2020
*) Author notification: August 21, 2020
*) Camera-ready deadline: September 4, 2020
*) Workshop: September 28 - October 1, 2020
All deadlines are at 23:59 CET (UTC+1).
== Aims and Scope ==
EG VCBM (, the Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine, is an annual event addressing the state of the art in visual computing research with a strong focus on applications in biology and medicine. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for experts (researchers and practitioners) from visualization, visual analytics, computer graphics, image processing, computer vision, human-computer interaction, as well as experts from biology and medicine, jointly working on next-generation visual computing solutions for medicine, healthcare, and the biotechnology sector. This year’s workshop (already the 10th VCBM since its foundation in 2008) will be held during September 28 - October 1, 2020 in Tübingen, Germany.
We are pleased that this year we accept the following types of posters:
*) Original, application-oriented research posters that advance the fusion of visual computing methods within medicine and biology, according to the general call that can be found at
*) Research overview posters summarizing biomedical visualization research on topics below. This is an excellent way to highlight, for example, the research carried out in the scope of a PhD project, to promote PhD direction discussions with experts, or to present activities of a specific research group.
*) Research group overview posters presenting the current research work of an entire group or a research center. The scope of such a poster can also include upcoming funded projects and thus even indicate open vacancies.
*) Posters describing an open research problem that may have been defined by a domain scientist (e.g., a physician or biologist). This is a unique opportunity to present an exciting research problem to a broad professional audience and to promote new collaborations.
Suggested topics for posters include, but are not limited to:
*) Visual computing solutions for medical applications like radiology, surgery, pathology,  cardiology, nephrology, neurology, etc., including medical education
*) Visual computing solutions for applications that support biomedical research in systems biology, -omics research, molecular pathology, neuroanatomy, biomedical imaging, etc.
*) Medical simulation and visual computing solutions that support new approaches in computational medicine, including also the uses of stereoscopy and haptics
*) Visualization approaches for data from new or challenging imaging modalities including real-time imaging (e.g., ultrasound)
*) Visual computing solutions in the context of the virtual physiological human
Methods might include, but are not limited to:
*) Visualization and analysis of all kinds of biomedical data (signals and images)
*) Visualization, mining, and analysis of biomedical data collections, including cohort data
*) Information visualization of medical data sets, e.g., electronic health records
*) Computer models of biomechanical, physiological, and biochemical functions in living systems
*) Fusion, analysis, and visualization of heterogeneous and/or multi-source data
*) Multi-scale methods and data structures for large data
*) Interaction and design of visual computing workflows in medicine and biology
*) Data tracking and registration
*) Data reconstruction and geometry extraction
*) Real-time rendering and interaction with anatomy models
== Information for Authors ==
EG VCBM 2020 continues the poster track to enable researchers to present their work in progress, minor improvements beyond the state-of-the-art, and the best results of the undergraduate student projects in the area of visual computing for biology and medicine. Accepted posters will be placed in the workshop area during the time of the event, and the program will feature a dedicated poster session where the authors have the opportunity to present their research and lead fruitful discussions with peer researchers to inspire future research and cooperation.
== Submission Instructions ==
The submission to the poster track at EG VCBM consists of a ½ - 1 page abstract (using the poster submission template) including one picture. The posters abstracts will be reviewed by the poster conference chairs and the abstracts of the accepted posters will be included in the conference publications. The material from the poster can be re-used for a full paper submission somewhere else. This act is not to be considered as self-plagiarism. Authors of the accepted posters are expected to bring their poster to the conference, register for the conference participation, and present their work at the poster at the time of the poster session.
Please submit your non-anonymized poster abstract submissions including authors names, affiliations, and acknowledgments using the Eurographics SRM conference management system:
Please use the LaTeX style available at to prepare your submission.
More information on the preparation of your submissions will also be available soon on the VCBM 2020 website:
the Poster Co-Chairs of EG VCBM 2020,
Fritz Lekschas (Harvard University, United States) and
Gabriel Mistelbauer (University of Magdeburg, Germany)
