WVIS 2015 : 6th Workshop on Visual Analytics, Information Visualization and Scientific Visualization
Call For Papers
Call for WVIS 2015 - 6th Workshop on Visual Analytics, Information Visualization and Scientific Visualization (co-located with SIBGRAPI 2015)
Motivated by the increasing attention worldwide on visualization techniques, WVIS reaches its 6th edition, bringing a forum to discuss information or scientific visualization techniques, as well as visual analytics tools. As WVIS is becoming a mature workshop, in this edition we are looking for original and unpublished work in the area. We expect that WVIS will serve as a a forum for the dissemination of current work in the field, while fostering new research and collaborations. The workshop will be comprised of a poster session to promote discussions with the authors, and one or two invited talks by well-known researchers in the field.
A list of suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to:
Visual representations and interaction techniques: focus+context, brushing and linking, coordinate multiple views, zooming, navigation, etc.
Time-series analysis and visualization, streaming techniques for visualization, time-varying data analysis and visualization.
Visual Data Mining techniques
Machine Learning for Visual Analytics
High-dimensional data and dimensionality reduction applied to visualization problems.
Mathematical foundations and algorithms for data transformations to allow interactive visual analysis.
Layout arrangement: graph drawing, overlap removal methods, and small multiples visualization.
Big data visualization: urban data, environmental data, etc.
Visualization, rendering and manipulation of spatial data: scalar, vector and tensor fields, flow fields, regular and unstructured grids, etc.
WVIS 2015 will have a well-known researcher as invited speaker, which will be announced soon.
Paper submission: June 14th, 2015
Notification of acceptance: July 5, 2015
Final title and abstract due: July 19, 2015
All papers must be written in English and formatted according to the IEEE standard (the same of the main conference). The papers should be submitted through the CMT system. We welcome short papers of 3-4 pages. We are looking forward to original and unpublished work in the field.
All paper reviews will be coordinated by the chairs of WVIS 2015. Accepted work will be included in the electronic proceedings of the conference. In addition, papers of exceptional quality will receive a second round of reviews by the international program committee. The additional reviews will contain a list of suggestions on how to extend the paper for a journal submission.
The authors of accepted papers will present their work in a fast forward session (1-2 mins), and a poster presentation session (1 hour). Instructions for the fast-forward session, as well as poster guidelines, will be given upon the notification of accepted papers.
To be defined.
