Call for Contributions
Topological Data Analysis has become, over the last few years, an established framework for the extraction and analysis of subtle structural patterns in complex data. It has been successfully applied in a variety of application fields, including quantum chemistry, astrophysics, fluid dynamics, combustion, material sciences, biology, and data science. In particular, the genericity, efficiency, and robustness of topological methods have made them particularly well suited for the multi-scale, interactive analysis and visualization of the structural information of data.
Despite their rising mainstream popularity, topological methods still face a number of challenges, including, for instance efficient computational methods for large-scale time-varying data, the characterization of noise and uncertainty, or the support of novel emerging data types such as ensemble data or high-dimensional point clouds.
The IEEE VIS Workshop on Topological Data Analysis and Visualization aims at being an inclusive forum for the fast dissemination of the latest results in theory, algorithms, and applications of topological methods for the interactive and visual analysis of data. This workshop is a remodeling of the established TopoInVis workshop series, with the goal of being more diverse (in terms of applications) and inclusive (in terms of communities), with a clear will to open to other members of the visualization community potentially interested in topological methods, or experts in topological methods from other communities willing to experiment with interactive and visual applications.
New in 2022
This year, in addition to full paper presentations, we will host a session of lightning talks (approx. 5 minutes) for early-career researchers (Ph.D. students, post-docs, etc.) to advertise their work to the community.
Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):
- Topological methods for the analysis and visualization of:
- High dimensional point cloud data
- Graph data
- Scalar, vector, tensor, multi-field data
- Time-varying data
- Ensemble data
- Uncertain data
- Topological methods for data science (dimensionality reduction, clustering, etc.)
- Computational methods for topological data analysis and visualization
- Software systems for topological data analysis and visualization
- Visual analytic frameworks relying on topological methods
- Applications of topological data analysis and visualization
We welcome contributions as regular papers in the IEEE VGTC format (up to 9 pages of content, plus up to 2 pages of references), as well as abstracts (at most 500 words) for early-career lightning talks. More detailed instructions for submission and further details will appear here soon.
Paper submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international program committee, including experts in topological methods for scientific data, information visualization, visual analytics, and machine learning.
Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
