7th Workshop on Visual Analytics, Information Visualization and Scientific Visualization


Motivated by the increasing popularity and importance of visualization techniques, WVIS reaches its 7th edition, bringing a forum to discuss recent advances in information and scientific visualization techniques, as well as visual analytics. As WVIS is becoming a mature workshop, in this edition we are looking for discussing original and innovative work in the area. We expect that WVIS will serve as a forum for the dissemination of current work in the field, while fostering new research and collaborations.

Call for Participation

We invite contributions in all areas of data visualization. A list of suggested topics for papers includes, but is not limited to:

  • ✱ Visual representations and interaction techniques
  • ✱ Time-series visualization, streaming data visualization, time-varying data analysis, spatio-temporal visualization
  • ✱ High-dimensional data and dimensionality reduction
  • ✱ Mathematical foundations and algorithms for data transformations to allow visual analysis
  • ✱ Layout arrangement: graph drawing, overlap removal methods
  • ✱ Big data visualization: urban data, environmental data
  • ✱ Visualization, rendering, and manipulation of spatial data: scalar, vector, and tensor fields
  • ✱ Applications in the area of machine learning, pattern recognition, and image processing

All papers must be written in English and formatted according to the SIBGRAPI IEEE format. The papers should be submitted through the CMT system. We welcome short papers of 4-5 pages with the 5th page containing only references.

All papers will be coordinated by the chairs of WVIS 2017 and reviewed by the program committee in a double-blind process. Accepted papers will appear in the SIBGRAPI's proceedings (authors can opt for not having the manuscript published). The authors of accepted papers will have to present their work in a poster session (about 1 hour). Selected papers will be invited for oral presentation. Instructions for the poster format will be given upon the notification of acceptance.
