IEEE VIS 2015 Poster CFP:


Submission Deadline: June 26, 2015 (5pm PDT)
Notification: July 24, 2015
Final Submission of Camera Ready Summaries: August 7, 2015
Submission of Video Previews: August 7, 2015

The IEEE VIS 2015 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

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
- video previews for posters are strongly suggested

Examples of appropriate visualization work include, but are not limited to:
- research exploring new problems or areas,
- the results of student or pilot projects,
- new angles on existing (collections of) work or known data sets,
- work in progress presented prior to its full publication, and
- any work that might particularly benefit from demonstration to and active
discussion with the visualization community.

Case studies in all application areas are welcome.

We particularly encourage contributions that take advantage of the nature
of the poster space and forum to present and raise awareness of the work in
effective and imaginative ways.


Visit the Posters FAQ page for some useful tips for authors.

Poster authors must submit a two-page summary of their work in the VGTC
conference two-column format in line with the IEEE VIS formatting

Summaries should include a concise description of the idea, the results or
findings, supporting imagery and figures, and a discussion of the
implications of the work to the selected domain. Full literature searches
are not expected, although relevant citations should be included.

The posters themselves have no predefined formatting, but dimensions may
not exceed A0 paper size (841mm x 1189mm / 33.1" x 46.8").  ONLY PORTRAIT
FORMAT IS ACCEPTABLE. Poster authors are encouraged to include a draft or
sketch of the poster layout and content in their submission to help
reviewers and show that the poster format is being used effectively. This
should be in PDF format

Those who intend to show demos are also highly encouraged to submit an
accompanying video or other supplementary materials according to the IEEE
VIS formatting guidelines

Authors whose posters are accepted for IEEE VIS will be asked to refine
their posters and summaries based upon feedback from reviewers.

The poster itself only needs to be prepared for and brought to the poster
session at IEEE VIS but should hang throughout the week.


All IEEE VIS poster submissions should be made through a single submission
category on PCS - IEEE VIS Poster.

After logging into PCS at, start
your submission by selecting "IEEE VIS Posters 2015" and then select the
conference to which you are submitting a poster:

Scientific Visualization (SciVis) - for conference themes see  IEEE
Scientific Visualization Call for Participation
Information Visualization (InfoVis) - for conference themes see  IEEE
Information Visualization Call for Participation
Vsual Analytics Science and Technologies (VAST) - for conference themes see
 IEEE VAST Call for Participation


Authors of accepted posters are required to bring an explanatory hardcopy
poster for display during IEEE VIS. They should be available at the poster
to discuss their work during the scheduled evening poster session(s).

All authors who plan to show live demos or video should clearly indicate
this fact in their submissions. We encourage you to bring a laptop to the
poster session where tables will be provided.


Each poster submission will be read and evaluated by at least two reviewers.

Submissions will be evaluated according to originality, significance,
suitability for the venue (levels of interest, relevance) and the potential
for prompting discussion.

All authors will receive reviews of their submission explaining the
decision and providing feedback. Authors of posters that are accepted are
expected to address any recommendations and conditions of acceptance prior
to final submission.


The chairs of each conference will award a 'Best Poster' prize to the
authors of what is deemed the strongest submission to the conference
according to the reviewing criteria. 'Best Poster' authors will receive a
signed certificate.
