2014 IEEE VIS International Workshop on 3DVis: Does 3D really make sense for Data Visualization?


    • This workshop is a satellite event of the IEEE VIS 2014 conference.
    • The aim of this workshop is to discuss 3D display and 3D user interfaces for scientific and information visualization and Visual Analytics.
    • Although 3D interfaces may add additional possibilities for data representation as well as more natural interaction, current experimental results are inconclusive and the adoption of 3D methods by end users is rare.
    • This 2D vs. 3D debate, far from having a final answer, is the focus of this workshop.
    • New low-cost 3D systems make this technology accessible to everyone and also enable new modes of interaction. This has the potential to facilitate interaction with huge data sets.

    Technical Scope

    • Immersive visualization, navigation and interaction
    • 3D for Scientific visualization, Information visualization, Visual analytics
    • Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality for 3D visualization
    • Key factors and issues in 3D Data Visualization
    • User evaluation of 2D vs 3D Visualization

    Intended audience

    • VIS researchers and industrials interested in 3D Visualization

    Expected size of the audience

    • From 15 to 25 participants 

    Format or style of the workshop

    • Presentations 


    • Half a day or a whole day, beginning sunday morning 9 november 2014 


    • We sollicit research papers, technotes, state of the art, position papers and demonstrations within the scope of 3D Visualization:
      • Research Papers (up to 8 pages) should describe original research results or original 3D Vis systems or frameworks
      • Technotes (up to 4 pages) should contain unpublished preliminary results of research, application, design or system work
      • State of the art reports (up to 8 pages) should provide surveys on one of the topics of this workshop
      • Position Papers (up to 6 pages) should present interesting and possibly controversial points of view on one of the topics of this workshop
      • Demonstrations (up to 2 pages associated to a video) should illustrate some limitations of the 2D or the 3D approach
    • Submitted papers will be evaluated through a double blind reviewing process of the submissions by the PC committee members
    • The workshop proceedings will consist of all accepted papers and will be submitted to the IEEE Digital Library
    • Blind submissions should be made through the Easychair system:
    • Submission dates are detailed  there
