DMSVIVA 2021 : 27th International DMS Conference on Visualization and Visual Languages
Call For Papers
The main theme of the 27th International DMS Conference on Visualization and Visual Languages (DMSVIVA2021) is Extreme Visual Languages, which are visual languages that can communicate an integrated/holistic meaning of an application, a philosophy or even the entire spatial/temporal dimensions of a universe in a single or a few visual expressions. An example is the aliens' visual language in the movie "The Arrival" where each visual sentence expresses the continuum of space and time. Another example is a visual diagram illustrating the spread of Covid-19 in the world. A third example is the Ying/Yang icon that appears in the national flag of the Republic of Korea (and many other places). A fourth example is the red flag. A natural extension to include sound and other media leads to Extreme Multimedia Languages. Papers are solicited on extreme visual and multimedia languages, both abbreviated as XVLs, including empirical and comparative studies of existing XVLs and the investigation of syntax, semantics, dynamics and application integration of existing and/or new XVLs and related topics.
The conference organizers seek contributions of high quality papers, panels or tutorials, addressing any novel aspect of sentient multimedia systems that significantly benefits from the incorporation and/or integration of multimedia data (e.g., visual, audio, pen, voice, image, etc.), especially in visual languages and distance education technologies, for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. Both research and case study papers or demonstrations describing results in research area as well as industrial development cases and experiences are solicited. The use of prototypes and demonstration video for presentations is encouraged.
Selected Papers of DMSVIVA2021 will be published in special issue of JVLC.
The International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE2021) will be held at the same hotel from July 1 to July 3, 2021. Its website is: ksiresearchorg.org/seke/seke21.html. Authors are welcome to attend both conferences for a single registration fee (conference attendance only).
