The 8th IEEE Pacific Visualization Symposium (PacificVis 2015) will be held in Hangzhou, China during April 14 to 17, 2015. Visualization has become an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. PacificVis is an IEEE sponsored international visualization symposium held in the Asia-Pacific region, with the objective to foster greater exchange between visualization researchers and practitioners, and to draw more researchers in the Asia-Pacific region to enter this rapidly growing area of research.
PacificVis is a unified visualization conference, welcoming all areas of visualization research such as: information, scientific, graph, security, software and bio-visualization. Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research and practical applications in all areas of visualization. We encourage papers in any new, novel, and exciting research area that pertains to visualization.
All submitted papers (at most 8 pages) will go through a two-stage review process to guarantee the publication of high-quality papers. All papers accepted by PacificVis 2015 will be published in hardcopy proceedings by IEEE and also included in the IEEE Digital Library. Selected research papers of outstanding quality will be invited to submit an extended version to IEEE Transactions of Visualization and Computer Graphics.
PacificVis features a short paper track, called "Visualization Notes". The purpose of this track is to encourage young researchers to present their work and discuss with participants including senior researchers there. The submissions can be late-breaking results and work in progress, while they should be novel enough to attract interest from the visualization community.
All submitted short papers (at most 4 pages in length with references or 5 pages including references) will be peer-reviewed through a single-stage process by the international program committee. The suggested topics for the "Visualization Notes" are the same as those for full papers, while the ideas there can be relatively small as compared with those for full papers. Nonetheless, the "Visualization Notes" are still expected to contain technically interesting results in theories and/or applications. Accepted short papers will be included in the conference proceedings and in IEEE digital library.
PacificVis 2015 is soliciting high quality poster proposals (2 pages). The PacificVis 2015 poster program offers an opportunity to present innovative techniques in commercial products, work in progress, student projects, or non-traditional research.
