CFP: 6th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC10)


6th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC10)

Monte Carlo Resort & Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada
Nov 29 - Dec 1, 2010

The purpose of the International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC) is to
provide a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners
throughout the world to present their latest research findings, ideas,
developments and applications in the broader area of visual computing. ISCV
seeks papers describing contributions to the state of the art and state of the
practice in the four central areas of visual computing: (1) computer vision,
(2) computer graphics, (3) virtual reality, and (4) visualization. For a list
of specific topics, please visit the ISVC website. ISVC10 will consist of
invited and contributed presentations dealing with all aspects of visual
computing. In addition to the main technical program, the symposium will
include several keynote speakers, posters sessions, and special tracks.

*** Submission Procedure ***

Papers submitted to ISVC10 must not have been previously published and must not
be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. A complete paper
should be submitted in camera-ready format. The length should match that
intended for final publication. The page limit is 12 pages. In submitting a
paper the author(s) agree that, upon acceptance, they will prepare the final
manuscript in time for inclusion into the proceedings and will present the
paper at the symposium.

*** Paper Publication ***

This is a fully refereed symposium. Papers will be reviewed with an emphasis on
potential to contribute to the state of the art in the field. Each paper will
receive two-three blind reviews and should not contain names or other
information revealing authors' identity. Selection criteria include accuracy
and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and presentation
quality. All papers accepted will appear in the symposium proceedings which
will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series (pending approval).

*** Special Tracks ***

Proposals are invited for special tracks on any topic relevant to the
symposium. Special tracks are intended to stimulate in-depth discussions in
special areas relevant to the symposium theme. A special track may span
multiple sessions, depending on the quantity and quality of the papers
submitted. All papers accepted in a special track will be published in the
symposium proceedings. If you are interested in organizing a special track,
please email a special track proposal to by March 15, 2010. Each
special track proposal should include the following information:

2. Scope and Topics
3. Names of organizers and contact information
4. Initial special track committee
5. Anticipated number of papers
