WVIS - Workshop on Visual Analytics, Information Visualization and Scientific Visualization
Motivated by the increasing popularity and importance of visualization techniques and tools, WVIS reaches its 9th edition. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for visualization researchers, practitioners, and the general public interested in data visualization to meet, discuss and share experiences, insights, and ideas in researching, developing, and applying visualization techniques to real-world problems.
Following up the ideas of last year’s WVIS and to encourage participation from students, we will conduct a 6-hour workshop that will include an invited keynote, at least two hands-on one-hour mini-tutorials on new tools, methods, systems, and application domains necessary for research in scientific visualization, information visualization, visual analytics, and topics that span multiple of these areas; a session with lightning talks by graduate students, and a panel on teaching visualization and visual analytics. See the calls for submissions for the mini-tutorials and lightning talks below.
We expect that WVIS will serve as a forum for the dissemination of current work in the field while fostering new research and collaborations.
Workshop Date: Nov-07-2020 13:15 to 18:00
WVIS: Call for Lightning Talks
Lightning talks accommodate highly promising work that benefits from early feedback. This year’s WVIS will include a session with lightning talks by graduate students, followed by a discussion. This will give the opportunity for Ph.D. and MSc students and young researchers to present their work-in-progress. An award will give credit to the best presentation.
A lightning talk is a 5-minute pre-recorded presentation of work-in-progress. Topics of interest for WVIs include concepts, experiences, and results from research projects on all topics related to visualization and visual analytics.
All pre-recordings will be presented in a dedicated session during the WVIs online workshop. To connect presenters and participants, we will allow for live Q&A after the presentations. If allowed by participants, recordings and abstracts will be published on the WVIS web page after the conference. So, we encourage all intended presenters to find creative solutions to convey your work in a compelling way. You can integrate slideshows with voice-overs with videos and even live-action movies. The only limit is the 5-minute time slot you have.
Submissions will be in the form of a one-page abstract (double-column, 10pt, SIBGRAPI template) that describes your work concisely. Feel free to add a link to a preliminary version of your video. Send your abstract by mail to email@example.com.

WVIS: Call for Mini-Tutorials
WVIS mini-tutorials are intended to cover a wide selection of topics related to visualization and provide background on new tools, methods, systems, and application domains necessary for research in scientific visualization, information visualization, visual analytics, and topics that span multiple of these areas. Tutorial attendees come from diverse backgrounds, including, among others: visual analytics, visualization, information visualization, geographic visualization, high performance computing, scientific visualization, visual data science, and scientific application communities.
We are soliciting one-hour mini-tutorial proposals in the areas of visualization systems, mathematical foundations, research methods, design and development methodology, and application areas. Tutorials with an application focus and including hands-on demos and practices are also encouraged. All mini-tutorials should be in a virtual format.
Submissions will be in the form of a one-page proposal and should include:
- The level of background knowledge assumed by the tutorial (beginning, intermediate, or advanced) and system requirements for attendees;
- An abstract of the tutorial topic;
- A description of the tutorial’s organization including time allocation and outline for major course topics;
- The background and contact information for each instructor.
Send your proposal by mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
