New for 2017: Workshop submission date moved up to Feb 15 2017, to allow more time for publicizing accepted workshops.
We solicit half-day workshops related to all areas of visualization including visual analytics, information visualization, and scientific visualization. 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.
Workshop proposals should include:
Organizers should also submit the Requirements Survey to indicate requested facilities including room setup, any needed supplies or materials, and timing preferences (schedule requests are handled on a best-effort request and cannot always be accommodated).
The proposal should not exceed four pages. Please visit http://junctionpublishing.org/vgtc/Tasks/camera.html for details and submit via PCS http://precisionconference.com/~vgtc/.
The workshops will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
The workshop organizers will receive the following support from the VIS conference:
If the requirements of the workshop exceed this default support, the workshop organizers are expected to coordinate with the workshop chairs and possibly raise funds to support the workshop activities; fundraising plans must be discussed with the workshop and supporters chairs prior to contacting any potential funder. For more information, see the guidelines for Financial and Coordination Policies for IEEE VIS.
If the proposed workshop is a follow-up on a previous workshop, please include a discussion of the results and the impact of the previous workshop. The aim of workshops is to include a variety of topics and a healthy mix of new and recurring events. 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 and complement the main program of the conference.
Accepted workshops are required to prepare a short summary (~50 words) for the printed program; a longer summary of ~90 words may be submitted for the web program, or the short one will be reused.
