The 11th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction (VINCI 2018) will be given in Växjö, Sweden, August 13-15, 2018. The paper submission deadline is extended until May 04, 2018 (23:59 in AoE). A selection of best papers will be invited to a special issue published by the Journal of Visual Languages and Computing (JVLC) =================================================================
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).
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We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on all aspects of visual information communication and interaction, either via images, computer graphics, animations, virtual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
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 VINCI2018 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 JVLC (SCI-indexed). 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 here. Detailed information on the electronic submission can be found on the conference web page.
