CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: VAST Papers
The IEEE Conference on Visual Analytics Science and Technology (IEEE VAST 2015) is the leading international conference dedicated to advances in visual analytics. The scope of the conference, co-located at VIS with the annual IEEE Scientific Visualization Conference and the IEEE Information Visualization Conference, includes both fundamental research contributions within visual analytics as well as applications of visual analytics in science, engineering, medicine, health, media, business, social interaction, security and investigative analysis, and other disciplines. We invite you to participate in IEEE VAST 2015 by submitting your original research and application papers.
Following the successful two-track arrangement in the previous year, IEEE VAST 2015 will again feature an expanded set of accepted papers in two categories:
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 a significant opportunity. 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.
From its outset, IEEE VAST has always given great emphasis to applications of visual analytics. While VAST 2015 seeks submissions in all areas of visual analytics, it particularly welcomes papers that make advances towards understanding or solving real world problems, or that impact a particular application in a significant way. A strong application paper, for which technique novelty is not essential, typically features one of the following qualities: namely high or broad impact, novel application, innovative technical adaptation or integration, or insightful experience or evaluation. For further discussion of application papers see the VAST paper types page.

All three conferences at IEEE VIS 2015 (VAST, InfoVis and SciVis) 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.
