VINCI 2017
The 10th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication
and Interaction
Bangkok, Thailand, 14-16 August 2017
Paper submission deadline extended to 9 April 2017

Visual communication through graphical or sign languages has long
been conducted among human beings of different backgrounds or
cultures, and in recent decades between human and machine. In
today's digital world, visual information is typically encoded
with various metaphors commonly used in daily life to facilitate
rapid comprehension and easy analysis during the communication
process. Visual information communication generally encompasses
information visualization, graphical user-interfaces, visual
analytics, and visual languages. Visual information is
increasingly being used to facilitate human-human communication
through the Internet and mobile devices.

The Symposium on Visual Information Communication and
Interaction (VINCI) (vinci-conf.org) is the premier international
forum for researchers and industrial practitioners to discuss the
state-of-the-art in visual communication theories, designs, and
applications. The 10th International Symposium on Visual
Information Communication and Interaction (VINCI'17) will be held
during 14-16 August 2017, in Bangkok, Thailand.  Papers can be
submitted as full papers, short papers and posters. All accepted
papers will be published by ACM Press and made available in the
ACM Digital Library (EI indexed). Authors of a number of selected
full papers of high quality will be invited to submit revised
versions of their works to a special issue of the Journal of
Visual Languages and Computing (Elsevier, SCI indexed). In
addition, revised versions of selected best papers in art and
design will be invited for subsequent publication in a special
issue of Leonardo (MIT Press, AHCI indexed).


We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on
all aspects of visual information communication and interaction,
either via images, computer graphics, animations, virtual
reality, web, or other media. Research papers may address
cognitive and design aspects, underlying theories, taxonomies,
implementation work, tool support, and case studies. Topics of
interest include but are not limited to the following: Cognitive
aspects of visual information comprehension Empirical studies of
novel visual metaphor Visual interaction through multimodality
Visual approaches for knowledge discovery Computational
aesthetics Visual analytics Graph drawing and (multivariate)
network visualization Information visualization Graphical user
interface design Aesthetics in visual communication Influence of
visual arts and design Visual modeling languages and UML Visual
communication metaphors Visual programming languages
Visualization on mobile devices Applications like SoftVis,
BioVis, GeoVis, ...  Sketching Human-computer interaction


Submissions that address research and development, as well as
experience reports and tool demonstrations on the above and other
related topics are strongly encouraged. Papers can be submitted
as full papers, short papers and posters. Each submitted
symposium paper will be peer-reviewed by at least three
International Program Committee members. All accepted papers and
posters will appear in the proceedings of VINCI 2017 published by
ACM Press and made available in the ACM Digital Library (EI
indexed). Moreover, authors of a number of selected full papers
of high quality will be invited to prepare revised versions of
their work for submission to a special issue of the Journal of
Visual Languages and Computing (Elsevier; SCI indexed). In
addition, it is planned that revised versions of selected best
papers in art and design will be invited for the subsequent
publication in a special issue of Leonardo (MIT Press; AHCI
indexed).  Research papers and experience reports of up to
eight (8), short papers of up tofour (4), and tool demonstrations
or posters of up to two (2) ACM double-column pages should be
submitted through easychair.org. The review process will be
single-blind. We appreciate the submission of videos or other
supplemental material. Please provide a URL at the end of the
submitted paper to enable the reviewers the download of your
additional material. Detailed information on the electronic
submission can be found at the end of this page.

VINCI'17 is also soliciting proposals for full-day or half-day
workshops and tutorials on topics that address areas of interest
to the community. Proposals should not be longer than a maximum
of 2 pages. In particular, workshop proposals should include:
* The title and a brief description of the specific issues that the
  workshop will address, the reasons why the workshop is of
  interest in these times, and the main research areas involved.
* Contact information of the workshop chairs, their
  competence in the proposed topic(s) and previous experience
  in chairing scientific events.
* A tentative list of program committee members.
* Intended length (half or full day) and a draft of the Call for Papers.

It is expected that the workshop organizers will setup an own
workshop web page as soon as the workshop proposal has been

Tutorials usually attract a broad range of audiences, including
professionals, researchers, students, or practitioners, who wish
to enhance their knowledge in the specific tutorial
topic. Tutorials offer a unique opportunity to disseminate
in-depth information on specific topics in visual information
communication and interaction. Tutorial proposals should include
short biographies of the proposers, a draft of the tutorial
content, intended length, and evidence of the possibility of
attracting audience to the tutorial.  It is possible to extend
the symposium by one day in case many workshops or tutorials are
proposed and accepted. Detailed information on the submission of
workshop and tutorial proposals can be found at the end of this


We also invite special session and panel proposals for
VINCI'17. Proposals for special sessions and panels should
include the title, aim and scope, the names and affiliations of
the organizers together with a short biography. A list of
potential contributors or panel members would be surely helpful
too. The proposers are expected to have a good publication track
record and excellent standing in the proposed area.  Papers
submitted to special sessions should be done through the VINCI'17
EasyChair submission system. The paper types are identical to
those of regular submissions. It is the responsibility of the
special session organizers to make sure that papers submitted to
their special session clearly indicate the name of the special
session the paper belongs to. All papers submitted to special
sessions will be subject to the same peer-review procedure as the
regular papers (however chaired by the special session
organizers) and will appear in the VINCI'17 conference
proceedings as well. The symposium chairs reserve the right to
move accepted papers for a special session into a regular session
in case the special session has finally less than four papers. In
this case, the special session will be cancelled.
