CALL FOR PAPERS: 6th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction, 17-18 August 2013, Tianjin, CHINA

http://se.tju.edu.cn/vinci2013

VINCI 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.


CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

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


PAPER SUBMISSION

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.


POSTERS, DEMOS AND VIDEOS

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.
