CFP: 9th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'13)


9th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'13)
July 29-31, 2013
Aquila Rithymna Beach Hotel
Rethymnon, Crete, Greece

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 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'13 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. A selection of best papers will be published in a special issue of the
International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT) (ISI/SCIE
indexed) and the Computers and Graphics journal(ISI/SCIE indexed). Also, a
"best paper" award ($500) is sponsored by Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs
(MERL). The symposium's proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Submission Procedure

Papers submitted to ISVC'13 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.

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 February 1, 2013.
Each special track proposal should include the following information:

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