IEEE VIS 2017 is the premier forum for advances in visualization. The
event-packed week, October 1-6, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona, brings together
researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to
explore their shared interests in tools, techniques, and technology.

Registration for VIS is now open and hotel information is available on the
VIS 2017 website. For details, visit http://ieeevis.org/

BioVis Challenges Workshop

====================

The rapidly expanding field of biology creates enormous challenges for data
visualization techniques that enable researchers to gain insight from their
large and highly complex data sets. BioVis Challenges Workshop is a
half-day event organised in conjunction with IEEE VIS 2017 and focuses on a
state-of-the-art biological challenge that requires a concerted effort from
researchers in visualisation and biology to be addressed effectively. The
event will be kicked-off with a keynote from a biology expert where
challenges in a particular domain are presented followed by hands-on
activity on these challenges by groups of visualisation researchers and
domain scientists. The output of the workshop will be a list of
well-characterized visualization challenges within the problem domain, and
the organizers, together with the participants, will externalize these
challenges in the form of a report or publication following the event.

Symposium on Visualization in Data Science (VDS)

====================

Submission deadline: July 14, 2017

Visualization is an integral part of data science, and essential to enable
sophisticated analysis of data. After two highly successful events, the
third Symposium on Visualization in Data Science (VDS) will again be held
at IEEE VIS 2017. VDS will bring together domain scientists and methods
researchers (including visualization, usability and HCI, data management,
statistics, machine learning, and software engineering) to discuss common
interests, talk about practical issues, and identify open research problems
in visualization in data science. We solicit contributions in the form of
papers and abstracts / talks. Extended versions of selected papers will
appear in the IEEE Transactions on Big Data.

VAST Challenge 2017

====================

Submission deadline: July 16, 2017

All Mini-challenges and Grand Challenge available for download!

Innovative visual analytics approaches wanted to solve the Mystery at the
Wildlife Preserve!

The Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) Challenge is an annual
contest with the goal of advancing the field of visual analytics through
competition. The VAST Challenge is designed to help researchers understand
how their software would be used in a novel analytic task and determine if
their data transformations, visualizations, and interactions would be
beneficial for particular analytic tasks. VAST Challenge problems provide
researchers with realistic data sets and questions for evaluating their
software, as well as an opportunity to advance the field by solving more
complex problems. This year’s Challenge offers three diverse
mini-challenges and a grand challenge that concern a sad state of affairs
in a nature preserve, threats to flora and fauna, and the quest of a local
graduate student to find the explanations.

2nd Workshop on Visualization for the Digital Humanities

====================

Submission deadline: July 21, 2017

The purpose of this workshop is to propose new research directions in
visualization for the digital humanities, to familiarize the visualization
research community with the problems faced by digital humanities
researchers, and to foster future collaboration between visualization and
digital humanities research. Building on the success of the workshop in
2016, we are seeking work from scholars in both visualization and the
humanities who use visualization as part of the process of analyzing and
interrogating human culture.

Student Volunteers (SV)

====================

Submission deadline: August 1, 2017

Each year student volunteers provide essential support to the IEEE VIS
Conference. The conference depends on student volunteers to staff the
various conference events and special purpose conference rooms. Their
enthusiastic participation enhances the conference experience for all the
attendees. Student Volunteers benefit by observing first-hand the latest
advances in visualization, hearing and meeting world-class as well as
next-generation visualization professionals from around the world, and
building a network of research colleagues.

The Student Volunteer Program is looking for reliable, hard working and
enthusiastic student volunteers to help us create a great experience and a
premier conference. Selected volunteers will receive discounted IEEE VIS
registration, tickets to receptions, a volunteer thank-you party, and a
majority of accommodation costs covered at a student volunteers hotel
selected by the conference committee.

Meetups

====================

Submission deadline: August 15, 2017

Do you want to meet people who share the same interests with you, discuss a
topic that you care about or that brings the visualization community
forward, or share viewpoints and experiences to foster community building?
If yes, don’t wait, and submit a meetup proposal! Meetups are an excellent
forum to discuss a wide range of topics related to visualization. Be it to
share your knowledge in an informal setting, to discuss methods and trends
in visualization research, to provide information about the VIS
organisation, or to plan a social event, the possibilities are yours to
imagine! Meetups are public and open forum to everyone (the meetup
organizers need to register at the conference).

VISKids Child Care Grants

============

Submission deadline: August 22, 2017

Notification: August 24, 2017

The VIS conference is excited to support our VISKids and young families!

Grants of up to $500 per family are available for VIS attendees who are
bringing small children to the conference or who incur extra expenses in
leaving their children at home. If requests exceed available funding, or if
additional funding becomes available, preference will be given to students
and early career attendees who are presenting at the conference.
