*** Call for Papers, Tutorials, and Special Tracks ***

The 15th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC’20) will
take place in San Diego, California, USA, October 5-7, 2020. 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 special
interest are papers that combine ideas from two or more areas. More
details can be found on the ISVC website.

The symposium will consist of invited and contributed presentations
dealing with all aspects of visual computing. In addition, it will
include six keynote presentations, several tutorials, special tracks,
and poster sessions. The symposium's proceedings are published by
Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series. Information on abstracting and indexing of the LNCS series can
be found on the ISVC website. A best paper award will be
sponsored by Springer-Verlag and industry.

*** 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. Special tracks 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. Please
visit the ISVC website for more details and submission instructions.

*** Submission Procedure ***

This is a fully refereed symposium. Papers submitted to ISVC must not
be currently under consideration for publication in another
conference. Each paper will receive at least three (3) blind reviews
and should not contain names or other information revealing authors’
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; please visit the ISVC website for submission details.



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, attend the symposium in person,
and present the paper. If none of the authors of a paper can attend
the symposium and present their paper(s) due to unforeseen reasons,
they should contact the steering committee chair to make substitute
arrangements. Video or Skype presentations are not acceptable and any
papers not presented at the conference without a valid reason will be
withdrawn from the symposium proceedings.
