Call For Visualization Notes

The 9th IEEE Pacific Visualization Symposium (PacificVis 2016) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan during April 19 to 22, 2016. Visualization has become an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. PacificVis is an IEEE sponsored international visualization symposium held in the Asia-Pacific region, with the objective to foster greater exchange between visualization researchers and practitioners, and to draw more researchers in the Asia-Pacific region to enter this rapidly growing area of research.

PacificVis 2016 features a short paper track, called "Visualization Notes". The purpose of this track is to encourage young researchers to present their work and discuss with participants including senior researchers there. The submissions can be late-breaking results and work in progress, while they should be novel enough to attract interest from the visualization community.

Short paper submissions for the "Visualization Notes" can be up to a maximum of five (5) pages in length, with the caveat that an optional fifth page can only contain references. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed through a single-stage process by the international program committee. The suggested topics for the "Visualization Notes" are the same as those for full papers, while the ideas there can be relatively small as compared with those for full papers. Nonetheless, the "Visualization Notes" are still expected to contain technically interesting results in theories and/or applications. Please note that all submissions must be original and thus have not been published elsewhere. Accepted short papers will be included in the conference proceedings and in IEEE digital library.
