VINCI 2012 : The International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction
Call For Papers
The International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction (VINCI) is a multi-disciplinary conference that provides a forum for researchers, artists, designers, and industrial practitioners to discuss the state of the art in visual communication theories, designs, and applications.
VINCI has been previously held in Sydney (VINCI '2009), Beijing (VINCI '2010), and Hong Kong (VINCI '2011). VINCI '2012 will be held in the Year of the Dragon on September 27 and 28 in the beautiful city of Hangzhou, China.
We are soliciting high quality, research papers reporting on original research as well as system development experiences across a wide spectrum of interests and disciplines, including computer science, design, arts, sociology, anthropology and psychology. We are particularly interested in work that bridges the divide between technology, art and design. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Cognitive aspects of visual information comprehension
Graph drawing and visualization
Graphical user interface design
Usability or empirical study of new visual metaphors
Visual approaches to knowledge discovery
Visual programming and modeling languages
Visualization on mobile devices
Aesthetics in visual communication and digital media
New media in art and design
Interaction methods (touch-based, haptic, vision-based, multi-modality)
Visual metaphors and symbols
Design theory in the digital age
Accepted papers will be published by ACM Press and made available in the ACM Digital Library. Like VINCI’10 and VINCI’11 papers, accepted VINCI’12 papers will be EI-indexed. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of appropriate journals including the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing (JVLC) and International Journal of Software and Informatics (IJSI).
