We solicit workshops related to all areas of visualization including information visualization and visual analytics. The workshops venue at IEEE VIS provides an informal setting for participants to discuss advanced technical topics in visualization, involve experts in the field, disseminate work in progress, and promote new ideas.
A distinction that separates workshops from tutorials and symposia is that the information flow for a workshop should not be directed solely from the presenters to the audience. Rather, workshops should engage the participation of all attendees. Workshops at IEEE VIS are open to all registered attendees and 'invitation only' workshops will not be approved.
Papers submitted and presented as part of this workshop will not be published in the proceedings of the conference. Depending on interest and actual time schedule of each workshop, it may be possible to include workshop material on the USB drive for dissemination to venue attendees. If you wish to have your materials considered for printed publication, please submit the paper to the main conference or the related symposia.
Workshops complement the main program of the conference; as such, workshops and panels will be chosen this year to encourage a diversity of topics.
Proposals should include:
The workshops will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
If the proposed workshop is a follow-up on a previous workshop, please include a discussion of the results and impact of the previous workshop. The aim of workshops is to include a variety of topics, thus repeat submissions will be judged in part by the success of the previous workshop. Workshop success will be measured subjectively, but popularity, research impact, visibility and attendee feedback will all be taken into account.
In addition the workshop chairs will try to balance the proposed topics in order to support the diversity of topics within the IEEE VIS venue.
