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 techniques, tools, and technology. The IEEE Scientific Visualization (SciVis) Conference solicits novel research ideas and innovative applications in all areas of scientific visualization.
Papers accepted to IEEE SciVis will appear in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG). This special issue will be published online the first day of the conference. The acceptance rate is anticipated to be similar to that of 2014 and 2015 subject to the decisions resulting from the review process. After initial notification of review results, conditionally accepted papers (including supplemental material) will undergo a revision and review cycle in order to ensure that they are acceptable for publication and presentation in the journal. The paper and supplemental material will also be submitted to the IEEE Digital Library.
Of the paper types, IEEE SciVis has always had a strong emphasis on technique papers. While SciVis 2016 seeks submissions in all areas of scientific visualization, it particularly welcomes papers that give emphasis to systems for (system paper type) and applications of (application paper type) scientific visualization. In particular, papers that make advances towards understanding or solving real world problems, or that impact a particular application in a significant way are welcome.

All three conferences appearing 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 submission guidelines.
The IEEE Scientific Visualization conference is soliciting papers on all topics in visualization and visual computing research. Besides the traditional scientific visualization research areas, we encourage submissions from related areas such as visual computing, machine learning, data analytics, data sciences etc. that will broaden the foundation of scientific visualization. We also welcome papers that showcase novel use of scientific visualization across the full range of application domains.
Suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to:
James Ahrens, Los Alamos National Laboratory
Mike Kirby, University of Utah
Jos Roerdink, University of Groningen
