CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: VAST Papers
The IEEE Conference on Visual Analytics Science and Technology (IEEE VAST), founded in 2006 as the IEEE Symposium on Visual Analytics Science and Technology, is the first international conference dedicated to advances in Visual Analytics Science and Technology. The scope of the conference, co-located with the annual IEEE Visualization Conference and the IEEE Information Visualization Conference, includes both fundamental research contributions within visual analytics as well as applications of visual analytics, including applications in science, engineering, medicine, health, media, business, social interaction, and security and investigative analysis. We invite you to participate in IEEE VAST 2012 by submitting your original research, application, or evaluation paper.
As a new feature for 2012, ten of the best papers, as determined by the VAST Papers co-Chairs, will be published in IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics. All other accepted papers will be published in a conference proceedings that will be available from the IEEE Digital Library.
Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by highly interactive visual interfaces. People use visual analytics tools and techniques in all aspects of science, engineering, business, and government to synthesize information into knowledge; derive insight from massive, dynamic, and often conflicting data; detect the expected and discover the unexpected; provide timely, defensible, and understandable assessments; and communicate assessments effectively for action. The issues stimulating this body of research provide a grand challenge in science: turning information overload into the opportunity of the decade. Visual analytics requires interdisciplinary science, going beyond traditional scientific and information visualization to include statistics, mathematics, knowledge representation, management and discovery technologies, cognitive and perceptual sciences, decision sciences, and more. Your submission should help develop and/or apply Visual Analytics, clearly showing an interdisciplinary approach.

All three conferences appearing at IEEE VisWeek 2012 (Vis, InfoVis and VAST) use the Precision Conference System (PCS) to handle their submission and reviewing process. PCS is available at https://precisionconference.com/~vgtc/. When submitting your manuscript please make sure that you submit it to your intended conference by clicking the appropriate conference header in the conference system landing page. If you are unsure which venue you should submit to, you can use the call for papers on this website, as well as last year's published proceedings as a guideline.
