SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
======================
[Apologies if you receive multiple copies]

The 11th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and
Interaction (VINCI 2018)
(vinci-conf.org)

Växjö, Sweden, August 13-15, 2018

Workshop/Tutorial/Special Session/Panel proposals due: March 9, 2018

Paper submission deadline: April 20, 2018 (23:59 in AoE)
======================

Visual communication through graphics or text has long been conducted
among human beings of different backgrounds or cultures, and in recent
decades between human and machine. In today's digital world, visual
information is typically encoded with various metaphors commonly used in
daily life to facilitate rapid comprehension and easy analysis during
the communication process. Visual information communication generally
encompasses information visualization, graphical user-interfaces, visual
analytics, and visual languages. Visual information is increasingly
being used to facilitate human-human communication through the Internet
and mobile devices.

The Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction
(VINCI) (vinci-conf.org) is the premier international forum for
researchers and industrial practitioners to discuss the state-of-the-art
in visual communication theories, designs, and applications. The 11th
International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and
Interaction (VINCI '18) will be held on 13-15 August 2018, in Växjö, Sweden.

Papers can be submitted as full papers, short papers or posters. All
accepted papers will be published by ACM Press and made available in the
ACM Digital Library (EI indexed). Authors of selected full papers of
high quality will be invited to submit revised versions of their works
to a special issue of an SCI-indexed journal. In addition, revised
versions of selected best papers in art and design will be invited for
subsequent publication in a special issue of Leonardo (MIT Press, AHCI
indexed).

1. SCOPES AND TOPICS
====================

We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on all
aspects of visual information communication and interaction, either via
images, computer graphics, animations, virtual reality, web, or other
media. Research papers may address cognitive and design aspects,
underlying theories, taxonomies, implementation work, tool support, and
case studies. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the
following:

= Cognitive aspects of visual information comprehension
= Empirical studies of novel visual metaphors
= Visual interaction through multimodality
= Visual approaches for knowledge discovery
= Computational aesthetics
= Visual and immersive analytics
= Graph drawing and (multivariate) network visualization
= Information visualization
= Graphical user interface design
= Aesthetics in visual communication
= Influence of visual arts and design
= Visual modeling languages and UML
= Visual communication metaphors
= Visual programming languages
= Visualization on mobile devices
= Visualization in virtual, mixed, and augmented reality
= Applications like SoftVis, BioVis, GeoVis, ...
= Sketching
= Human-computer interaction

2. PAPER SUBMISSION
===================

Submissions that address research and development, as well as experience
reports and tool demonstrations on the above and other related topics
are strongly encouraged. Papers can be submitted as full papers, short
papers or posters. Each submitted symposium paper will be peer-reviewed
by at least three International Program Committee members. All accepted
papers and posters will appear in the proceedings of VINCI?018 published
by ACM Press and made available in the ACM Digital Library (EI indexed).
Moreover, authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality
will be invited to prepare revised versions of their work for submission
to a special issue of an SCI-indexed journal. In addition, it is planned
that revised versions of selected best papers in art and design will be
invited for the subsequent publication in a special issue of Leonardo
(MIT Press; AHCI indexed).

Research papers and experience reports of up to eight (8), short papers
of up to four (4), and tool demonstrations or posters of up to two (2)
ACM double-column pages should be submitted through
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Dvinci2018&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=RwXSO3mDQagABAdbBI-m3VsPIBvN3CBUrDoshCz75b8&s=4iBSHnybfAVn4A6pOT8pLVy9vnc1vvX61E4Chtzo7NY&e=. Detailed information
on the electronic submission can be found on the conference web page.

3. WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS
==========================

VINCI '18 is also soliciting proposals for full-day or half-day
workshops and tutorials on topics that address areas of interest to the
community. Proposals should not be longer than a maximum of 2 pages. In
particular, workshop proposals should include:

1) The title and a brief description of the specific issues that the
workshop will address, the reasons why the workshop is of interest in
these times, and the main research areas involved.

2) Contact information of the workshop chairs, their competence in the
proposed topic(s) and previous experience in chairing scientific events.

3) A tentative list of program committee members.

4) Intended length (half or full day) and a draft of the Call for Papers.

Workshop organizers will be expected to set up an own workshop web page
as soon as the workshop proposal has been accepted.

Tutorials usually attract a broad range of audiences, including
professionals, researchers, students, and practitioners, who wish to
enhance their knowledge in the specific tutorial topic. Tutorials offer
a unique opportunity to disseminate in-depth information on specific
topics in visual information communication and interaction. Tutorial
proposals should include short biographies of the proposers, a draft of
the tutorial content, intended length, and evidence of the possibility
of attracting audiences to the tutorial.

It is possible to extend the symposium by one day in case many workshops
or tutorials are proposed and accepted. Detailed information on the
electronic submission can be found on the conference web page.

4. SPECIAL SESSIONS AND PANELS
==============================

We also invite special session and panel proposals for VINCI '18.
Proposals for special sessions and panels should include the title, aim
and scope, the names and affiliations of the organizers together with a
short biography. A list of potential contributors or panel members would
be surely helpful too. The proposers are expected to have a good
publication track record and excellent standing in the proposed area.
Detailed information on the submission of special sessions and panel
proposals can be found on the conference web page.

Papers submitted to special sessions should be done through the VINCI
'18 EasyChair submission system
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Dvinci2018&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=RwXSO3mDQagABAdbBI-m3VsPIBvN3CBUrDoshCz75b8&s=4iBSHnybfAVn4A6pOT8pLVy9vnc1vvX61E4Chtzo7NY&e=). The paper types are
identical to those of regular submissions. It is the responsibility of
the special session organizers to make sure that papers submitted to
their special session clearly indicate the name of the special session
the paper belongs to. All papers submitted to special sessions will be
subject to the same peer-review procedure as the regular papers (however
chaired by the special session organizers) and will appear in the VINCI
'18 conference proceedings as well. The symposium chairs reserve the
right to move accepted papers for a special session into a regular
session in case the special session has finally less than four papers.
In this case, the special session will be canceled.
