IEEE VIS 2015 is the premier forum for advances in visualization. The
event-packed week brings together researchers and practitioners from
academia, government, and industry to explore their shared interests in
tools, techniques, and technology. We invite you to participate in IEEE
Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), IEEE Information
Visualization (InfoVis), and IEEE Scientific Visualization (SciVis) by
sharing your research, insights, experience, and enthusiasm.


We solicit high quality papers in all areas related to all areas of
visualization including information visualization, scientific
visualization, and visual analytics in three tracks. This year, the
scientific visualization conference (SciVis), as well as The Visualization
Analytics Science & Technology COnference will include both TVCG track and
conference-only track. For more information, visit

   The 6th IEEE Sympoisum on Large-scale Data Analysis and Visualization

   Data Science Symposium: TBD

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.

The VAST Challenge provides realistic problems and datasets to showcase the
effectiveness of tools and methods in the domain of visual analytics. The
contest collects several entries of varying complexity, aimed at allowing
students, researchers, practitioners, and industry to benchmark their tools
in a replicated way.

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, visit

Submission deadline: April 30, 2015 (Please note the new date)

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

The 2015 IEEE Scientific Visualization Contest will be an official part of
IEEE VIS 2015. Each year, the contest presents researchers from the
visualization community an opportunity to transfer the latest developments
in visualizing a challenging application scenario.  For more information,

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, visit

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, visit
