VINCI 2013 - 6th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction

Tianjin University, Tianjin, China, 17-18 August 2013

Conference proceedings published by ACM Press and archived in the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series.

The 6th 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 Shanghai, China (VINCI'2008), Sydney, Australia (VINCI'2009), Beijing, China (VINCI'2010), Hong Kong (VINCI'2011), and Hangzhou, China (VINCI'2012). VINCI 2013 will be held on August 17 and 18 in the beautiful city of Tianjin, 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:

Area 1: Visualization methodologies

* Information visualization
* Graph drawing and visualization
* Cognitive aspects of visual information comprehension
* Visual metaphors and symbols
* Usability or empirical study of new visual metaphors
* Design theory in the digital age
* Aesthetics in visual communication and digital media
* Interaction methods (touch-based, haptic, vision-based, multi-modality)

Area 2: Visualization applications

* Visual Analytics
* Sketching
* Graphical user interface design
* Software visualization
* Visual approaches to knowledge discovery
* Visual programming and modeling languages
* Visualization on mobile devices
* Animation
* Game design

Area 3: Visual design & art

* Interaction design
* Interactive art
* Infographie and data-driven art
* Virtual actors
* Interactive storytelling
* Augmented reality and its applications
* Computational (or digital) aesthetics
* Wearable computers
* Ubiquitous / responsive environments
* Entertainment technology


Submissions that address research and development on the above and other related topics are strongly encouraged. The scientific quality of contributed papers will be ensured by a rigorous review process, that will involve all members of the Program Committee. Papers may be up to 10 pages long and should be in ACM archival format. Accepted papers will be published by ACM Press and made available in the ACM Digital Library, as has been the case in previous years. Like VINCI 2010, 2011 and 2012 papers, accepted VINCI 2013 papers will be EI-indexed. Selected papers will be published in special issues of appropriate journals. Papers must be written in English.


VINCI 2013 offers a timely venue for artists, designers, industrial practitioners and researchers to present their ongoing projects, discuss innovative ideas and new problems or applications, and gain feedback from the community about their work. Authors will have a chance to give a short presentation at the demonstration session to discuss work and interact with the audience. Submissions can be made in the following form:

* Posters: Submit a two-page paper describing work on topics listed above. Authors of accepted posters are required to bring a large hardcopy poster for display. Posters have no predefined formatting, but the dimensions may not exceed A0 paper size (841mm X 1189mm). Posters are not considered archival publications and thus can have subsequent full papers submitted to other conferences or journals.

* Demos: Submit a one-page paper describing the system to be demonstrated. The live demo is limited to 20 minutes. Presenters should provide their own equipment if needed.

* Videos: Submit a one-page paper describing a pre-captured movie in standard formats. The video demo is limited to 20 minutes. Presenters can show and narrate the videos.


Paper submission: May 7, 2013
Notification of decision: June 7, 2013
Camera-ready copy: June 22, 2013
