ISVC 2021: 16th International Symposium on Visual Computing
Virtual, October 4-6, 2021

The 16th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'20) will
take place October 4-6, 2021. Due to the pandemic situation and to
ensure the safety of all participants, ISVC will be virtual again this

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. 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. More information about past ISVC symposia can be
found here:

*** Call for 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.

*** Submission and Review Process ***

This is a fully refereed symposium. Papers submitted to ISVC must not
be currently under consideration for publication in another
conference. Each submission will be reviewed by three members of the
Program Committee (PC) using a “double-blind” review process to
determine its appropriateness for acceptance and presentation (oral or
poster) at ISVC.  Therefore, submissions 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 and their length should match that intended for final

*** Publication ***

The symposium's proceedings are published by Springer in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Information on abstracting
and indexing of the LNCS series can be found on the ISVC website.

*** 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, attend the symposium, 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 proper
arrangements. Papers not presented at the symposium without a valid
reason will be withdrawn from the proceedings.
