13th International Symposium on Visual Computing Call for Papers

 13th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'18)
November 19-21, 2018
Luxor Resort & Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

The 13th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC 2018), will
be held at the Luxor Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA,
November 19-21, 2018. ISVC provides a common forum for researchers,
scientists, engineers and practitioners to present their latest
research findings, ideas, developments and applications in visual
computing. In particular, ISVC seeks papers contributing to the state
of the art and practice in the four main areas of visual computing:
(1) computer vision, (2) computer graphics, (2) visualization and (4)
virtual reality.  Of particular interest are papers that combine ideas
from two or more areas.

The symposium consists of invited and contributed presentations
dealing with all aspects of visual computing. In addition, it includes
six keynote presentations, several tutorials and special tracks, and a
poster session. A "best paper award" will be sponsored by
industry. The symposium's proceedings are published by Springer-Verlag
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. LNCS publications are
indexed by SCOPUS.

*** Submission Procedure ***

This is a fully refereed symposium. Papers submitted to ISVC must not
have been previously published and must not be currently under
consideration for publication elsewhere. Each paper will receive at
least two blind reviews and should not contain names or other
information revealing authorsí identity. Papers will be reviewed
with an emphasis on potential to contribute to the state of the art in
the field. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of
ideas, clarity and significance of results, and presentation
quality. Papers should be submitted in camera-ready format. The length
should match that intended for final publication (visit the ISVC
website for submission details).

*** Attendance ***

ISVC is a premier forum for presenting and discussing current research
in visual computing. At least one author of each accepted paper must
complete the symposium registration and present the paper at the
symposium, in order for their paper to be included in the proceedings
and symposium program. If none of the authors cannot attend the
symposium and present their paper(s) due to unforeseen reasons, they
should make arrangements with another ISVC attendee to present their
paper(s). Video or Skype presentations are not acceptable.

*** Tutorials and Special Tracks ***

Proposals are invited for tutorials and special tracks on topics
relevant to ISVC. Tutorials should address the interests of various
individuals in the field of visual computing including graduate
students, researchers and educators from academia, and researchers and
practitioners from industry and government. Tutorials will be held on
Sunday, November 18, 2018. Special tracks will take place during the
main dates of the symposium and are intended to stimulate in-depth
discussions in special areas relevant to the symposium theme. All
papers accepted for presentation in a special track will be published
in the symposium proceedings.
