The IEEE VIS 2015 Arts Program, or VISAP'15, showcases innovative artwork and research that explores the exciting and increasingly prominent intersections between art and visualization. Through a dedicated papers track and an art show that runs concurrently with the IEEE 2015 VIS conference, the Arts Program aims to foster new thinking, discussion, and collaboration between artists, designers, technologists, visualization scientists, and others working at the intersection of these fields.
VISAP'15 runs for three weeks in October at two locations in Chicago, Illinois. During the main IEEE VIS 2015 conference, events will take place at the historic Palmer House Hotel and at the LeRoy Neiman Center at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, both located in downtown Chicago. Additionally, the LeRoy Neiman Center will be open to the general public for viewing the VISAP'15 art installations during the week before and the week after the IEEE VIS conference.
Both the artworks and the papers will be selected through a rigorous peer review process in which submissions are evaluated on both quality and relevance to the IEEE VIS community by a program committee made up of experts in visualization and media arts. All submissions are due on June 26th, 2015. Details about the submission and review process as well as author guidelines can be found at the VISAP'15 website, located at http://visap.uic.edu/2015.
