CFP: 11th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'15)

11th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'15)

December 14-16, 2015
Monte Carlo Resort & Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

ISVC provides a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in visual computing. We seek papers contributing to the state of the art and practice in any of the four central areas of visual computing: (1) computer vision, (2) computer graphics, (3) virtual reality, and (4) visualization.  Of particular interest are papers that combine technologies from two or more areas. For a list of topics, see

ISVC'15 will consist of invited and contributed presentations dealing with all aspects of visual computing. In addition to the main program, the symposium will include several keynote presentations, special tracks, and a poster session. Significantly extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT) (ISI/SCIE indexed). Also, a "best paper" award ($500) will be sponsored by Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL). The symposium's proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

*** Submission Procedure ***

Papers submitted to ISVC'15 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.
