18th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC’23)
October 16-18, 2023
Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA

The 18th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'23) will
take place in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA, October 16-18, 2023 (at the
Harrah's Lake Tahoe Resort and Casino). 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, six keynote
presentations, special tracks, and a poster session cover all areas of
visual computing.

*** Call for Special Tracks ***
Proposals are invited for special tracks on topics relevant to ISVC
(see instructions on the ISVC webpage). 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.

*** Call for Tutorials ***
ISVC invites proposals for tutorials of interest to individuals
interested in Visual Computing including graduate students,
researchers and educators from academia, and researchers and
practitioners from industry and government. More information can be
found on the ISVC website.

*** 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.

*** Special Issue ***

Authors of selected papers presented at ISVC’23 will be invited to
submit an extended version of their work for expedited review and
possible publication in a special issue on Advances in Visual
Computing in the Machine Vision and Applications journal (to be
confirmed)ISVC. The paper submission deadline is tentatively on March
15, 2024 with publication of the special issue expected within 2024.

*** Attendance ***
ISVC is a premier forum for presenting and discussing current research
in visual computing. At least one author must attend and present the
paper at the symposium. If none of the authors can attend the
symposium and present their paper(s) due to unforeseen reasons, they
should contact the steering committee chair to make alternative
arrangements (i.e., recorded presentation or presentation by another
attendee).  Papers not presented at the symposium without a valid
reason will be withdrawn from the symposium proceedings.
