Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine 2018

September 2018

Granada, Spain

Collocated with MICCAI 2018

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 interfaces 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 8th VCBM since its foundation in 2008) will be held during September 20-21, 2018, in Granada, Spain. It will be collocated with the MICCAI conference.

EG VCBM solicits the submission of original, application-oriented research papers that advance the fusion of visual computing methods within medicine and biology. All papers (regular papers as well as short papers) should focus on a well-defined biological/medical problem, and demonstrate a significant innovation or improvement in visual computing.

Suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to:

Information for Authors

In addition to full-length papers, there will be again a short papers track, encouraging scientific contributions from an even more diverse group of researchers and practitioners. All VCBM 2018 papers (full and short) will be peer-reviewed and will appear in the Eurographics Digital Library.

We encourage the use of digital videos to support all submissions, particularly if part of, or all of the work covers interactive techniques. Please use only the most common video codecs such as MP4 to maximize the chances that the reviewers can view it.
