Important dates

  • December 16, 2013: Call for papers
  • January 24, 2014: Paper submission
  • March 7, 2014: Author notification
  • March 21, 2014: Camera-Ready Paper Due
  • April 6, 2014: Workshop date

The objective of this workshop is to discuss the modelling and visualisation of the city at various temporal and spatial scales, and aims at sharing associated techniques, methods, uses and points of view.

Managing and understanding urban data are major issues as there are represented by several kind of different data at different scales. Urban data not only embed the geometry of the city model, but also data related to human activities (eg. social data, transports, mobility, history), to physical phenomenon (eg. light, wind, heat), and to environment (eg. geography, climate).

Thus, the processing of urban data is a huge challenge for current computing capabilities, specially considering all the sustainable development parameters related to architectural design, urban planning and urban climate studies; but also considering the specific needs of entertainment, cultural heritage or any domains using urban data.

The issues found in urban data modelling and visualisation are shared by various domains (eg. Computer Graphics, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Human-Computer Interface, GIS, Conceptual Modelling and others) and are related to data quality, the complexity of the cities and the decision-making processes.

Contributions addressing the following topics are welcome:

  • Modelling the static and dynamic features of the city (spatio-temporal data)
  • Multi-scale geometric data (from building scale to urban scale)
  • Multi-scale temporal data (from real time to history time)
  • Visualisation of several urban data layers (aggregated indicators)
  • Visual analytics using urban data (decision making processes and CAD)
  • Acquisition and generation of real or realistic urban data

Expected contributions are research papers, 6 pages in EG publication format, presenting unpublished methods, algorithms and techniques with established results.

All accepted papers will be presented orally at the conference by one of the authors, and will be published in the EG Digital Library.
