IEEE VIS 2016 is the premier forum for advances in visualization for academia, government, and industry. This event brings together researchers and practitioners with a shared interest in visualization solutions. The IEEE Information Visualization Conference (InfoVis), one of the three main conferences at VIS 2016, solicits novel research ideas and innovative applications in all areas of information visualization.
|Abstract submission (MANDATORY)||Monday, March 21, 2016|
|Paper submission||Thursday, March 31, 2016|
|Notification of results of first review cycle||Monday, June 6, 2016|
|Paper submission for second review cycle||Monday, June 27, 2016|
|Final notification||Monday, July 11, 2016|
|Camera ready copy||Monday, August 1, 2016|
All deadlines are at 5:00pm Pacific Time (PDT).
Papers accepted to IEEE InfoVis will appear in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG). This journal special issue will have the publication date of January 2017 and will be published online the first day of the conference (October 25, 2016); individual paper preprints will be available for online Early Access by September 1, 2016. Papers (including supplemental material) will undergo a revision and review cycle after initial notification of review results in order to ensure that they are acceptable for publication in the journal. The paper and supplemental material will also be submitted to the IEEE Digital Library, subject to its standard terms and conditions.
All three conferences at IEEE VIS 2016 (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.
When preparing your submission, please make sure that you carefully read and adhere to the paper submission guidelines.
The IEEE InfoVis conference solicits research papers on diverse topics related to information visualization. Information visualization, broadly defined, involves the design of visual data representations and interaction techniques that support human activities, where the spatial layout of the visual representation is chosen by the designer. Papers may contribute novel visual encoding or interaction techniques, tools and techniques to support the visual data analysis process, evaluations of InfoVis techniques and tools, models or taxonomies related to InfoVis, systems that support visual data analysis, or experience applying information visualization to a domain-specific problem. Note that none of these guidelines are in any way prescriptive; in fact, many successful papers combine two contribution types, and the very best papers combine several.
Please note that topics primarily involving spatial data (such as scalar, vector and tensor fields) might be a better match for the IEEE SciVis Conference at IEEE VIS. Similarly, topics which clearly focus on visual analytics, e.g., the integration of computational solutions facilitated by visual interfaces, might be a better match for the IEEE VAST Conference, also at IEEE VIS.
Specific topics include, but are not limited to:
Information visualization techniques for
Techniques for interacting with visualizations or supporting the data analysis process, including
Integration of visualizations into the context of use, including
Information visualization fundamentals and methodologies
Applied information visualization
