Short Paper Call for Participation

IEEE Vis 2020 solicits submissions in a short paper format. Short papers draw from the same paper types and topics as full papers of VAST, Infovis and Scivis, ranging from theoretical to applied research contributions.

Short papers welcome submissions describing original work with focused and concise research contributions, incremental work such as follow-up extensions or evaluations of existing methods, or exploratory work.

The short paper submission deadline is June 13, 2020 July 13, 2020, creating an opportunity to showcase late-breaking research results.

Submission Guidelines:

Short papers can be up to four pages plus up to one page of references. Submissions will be in the VGTC conference two-column format, in line with the IEEE VIS formatting guidelines.

To submit a short paper, go to the PCS system and select “VGTC > VIS 2020 > VIS 2020 Short Papers” to set up a submission.

Publication Details:

Accepted short papers will be presented at the VIS conference. They will also be included in the conference proceedings and published in IEEE Xplore and assigned a DOI.

Authors of accepted short papers may subsequently submit to TVCG a full paper on the same topic, consistent with the TVCG standard requiring that papers previously published in conference proceedings make additional substantial scientific contributions that build upon the material of the conference publication or include this material as a part of a larger research effort. The authors are encouraged to make mention of this in their cover letter, provide a copy of the previous conference submission and an outline of the added contributions. Providing these materials will help TVCG reviewers to better gauge the scientific value of the work and defuse any possible misconceptions.

Concurrent submissions of short papers and posters are not possible.

Important Dates (deadline extension):

  • Submission Deadline: June 13, 2020 July 13, 2020 (no separate abstract deadline)
  • Notification: July 18, 2020 August 18, 2020
  • Submission of Camera-Ready Final Version: August 1, 2020 August 25, 2020

All deadlines are at 5:00pm Pacific Time (PDT).
