WORKSHOPS: Submission deadline: April 30, 2015. Notification of acceptance:
May 15, 2015

We solicit workshops related to all areas of visualization including
information visualization, scientific visualization, and visual analytics.
The workshops venue at IEEE VIS 2015 provides an informal setting for
participants to discuss advanced technical topics in visualization, involve
experts in the field, disseminate work in progress, and promote new ideas.
Workshops should emphasize emerging ideas, concepts, or technologies that
are currently too nascent or too interdisciplinary for a full symposium, or
bring together experts on a subject to create a report, white-paper, or
proposal requiring interactive work sessions that is of potential interest
to a substantial segment of the visualization community.  A distinction
that separates workshops from tutorials is that the information flow for a
workshop should not be directed solely from the presenters to the audience.
Rather, workshops should engage the participation of all attendees.
Workshops at IEEE VIS are open to all registered attendees and 'invitation
only' workshops will not be approved. For more information, please visit:

TUTORIALS: Submission deadline: April 30, 2015

Tutorials are intended to cover a wide selection of topics related to IEEE
VIS 2015 and provide background on new tools and application domains
necessary for research in data and information visualization and visual
analytics. Tutorial attendees come from diverse backgrounds, including
volume visualization and rendering, information visualization, geographic
visualization, visual analytics, high performance computing, and scientific
application communities. We are soliciting half-day tutorial proposals in
the areas of visualization systems, mathematical foundations, methods, and
application areas. We welcome course proposals that introduce emerging
technologies to the visualization community, as well as proposals on more
traditional visualization topics. Topics can include--but are not limited
to--any of those listed in the calls for papers for VAST, InfoVis, and
SciVis. Tutorials with an application focus are also encouraged. For more
information, please visit

PANELS: <>Submission
deadline: June 15, 2015

Panels address important and/or controversial applications and issues in
scientific and information visualization and visual analytics today. In
particular, we invite topics in connection with interesting application
fields. Panels bringing together potential users of visualization
technology (e.g. practitioners and industry professionals) and leading
researchers, or panels consisting of experts in fields that might teach us
important concepts (e.g., perceptual psychology, visual design, color
theory, user interface design) are welcome. For more information, please

POSTERS: Submission deadline: June 26, 2015. Notification of acceptance:
July 24, 2015. Camera ready (video preview) submission: August 7, 2015.

The poster program offers a timely venue to present and discuss new
visualization research through a forum that encourages graphical
presentation, demonstration and active engagement with IEEE VIS
participants.  In addition to a poster being displayed throughout IEEE VIS,
a two-page summary of your work will be published in the electronic
conference proceedings, interactive poster sessions will provide a forum
for presenting your work and discussing new ideas with your peers, and
finally video previews for posters are strongly suggested. For more
information, please visit

SCIVIS CONTEST  (Visualize the Universe): submission deadline: July 31, 2015

The goal of the project is to visualize cosmological simulations, which are
a cornerstone of our understanding of the Universe during its 13.7 billion
year progression from small fluctuations that we see in the cosmic
microwave background to today.  For more information, please visit

DOCTORAL COLLOQUIUM: Submission deadline: May 10, 2015, notification of
acceptance: July 1, 2015

The doctoral colloquium (DC) is a single-day invitation-only event taking
place the day before IEEE VIS where Ph.D. students in any visualization
field---preferably those at the proposal defense stage or
equivalent---present their proposed dissertation work and receive feedback
from leading senior visualization researchers. We invite contributions from
the scientific visualization, information visualization, and visual
analytics student communities. For more information, please visit

ARTS PROGRAM: Submission deadline: June 15, 2015

The theme for VISAP’15 is data Improvisations. Artists and visualization
researchers share common goals: to make things visible which are normally
difficult to see; and to enable reasoning about information that we might
otherwise remain ignorant of. For more information, please visit
