*** SCOPE & TOPICS ***

VINCI'23 includes tracks of Technical Papers, Art Papers, Young Talent Summit Papers, and Art Gallery. We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on all aspects of visual information communication and interaction, either via images, computer graphics, animations, virtual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, artistic projects, or other visual media. Research papers should 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:

- Visual communication metaphors

- Cognitive aspects of visual information comprehension

- Empirical studies of novel visual metaphors

- Visualization on artificial intelligence, machine learning and other fields

- Explainable artificial intelligence

- Aesthetics in visual communication and computational aesthetics

- Influence of visual arts and design to visual communication

- Information visualization and visual analytics

- Visual approaches to knowledge discovery

- Visual interaction through multimodality

- Visualization on mobile devices

- Graph drawing and network visualization

- Visual modeling languages

- Visual programming languages

- Graphical user interface design

- Human-computer interaction

- Applications in SoftVis, BioVis, GeoVis, etc.

Topics for Art Papers & Galleries

- Creative visualization

- Critical visualization

- Tangible visualization

- Data sculpturing

- Visual storytelling

- Data art

- Information aesthetics

- Interactive graphics

- Real-time simulation

- Generative art

- Creative applications of scientific illustration


Submissions that address research and development, and experience reports on the above 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 Full, Short, and Poster papers will be included in the ACM Proceedings as formal publications and EI-indexed. Authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality will be invited to prepare extended versions for submission to a Special Section of The Visual Computer (Springer), and a Special Issue of the Journal of Visual Computing for Industry, Biomedicine, and Art (Springer).

All paper submissions should be made through the EasyChair (easychair.org) conference management system. The review process will be double-blind, thus submitting an anonymized version of your manuscript by removing all author and affiliation information from submissions and supplemental files as well as substitute your paper's ID number for the author name. All submissions Manuscripts must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM Proceedings Template (using sigconf format/template double-column style) and should consist of a single PDF file. 

Please note: the authors of accepted papers will be later requested to submit source Latex or Word files during camera-ready version submission. We appreciate the submission of videos or other supplemental material. Please provide supplemental videos in MPEG-4, and use PNG for supplemental images, both in sufficient resolution. In case of any questions related to the submission process or conference program, please contact the program chairs via vinciinfo23 at gmail.com.


Technical Papers: A technical paper describes a new algorithm, technique, system, or theory that have not previously appeared in the literature. The description provided in the paper should be complete enough that a competent/qualified graduate student in visual information communication could implement or apply the work and should provide a formal/informal evaluation and discussion regarding its strengths and weaknesses.

Art Papers: This track serves as a link between arts, technology and science by offering creative views and artistic applications. We are especially interested in the submissions that demonstrate tangible and artistic ways of visual information communication, and address information aesthetics. The topics range from experimental and interdisciplinary case studies and methodologies, novel and critical interfaces for VINCI topics to critical analysis of theory and reference works in the field. 

Young Talent Summit Papers: This track serves as a link between young students and Academica by offering creative views and various research applications. Young Talent Summit aims to encourage young potential scholars, such as high school students, to present their original research/findings for the analysis and visualization in the advanced technologies. The topics range from experimental and interdisciplinary applications to critical analysis. There are two formats: short (≤ 4 pages) and poster (≤ 2 pages). The short paper demonstrates an in-depth analysis and a relatively novel contribution, while the poster paper shares alternative approaches, ideas or experiments.


The VINCI Art Gallery celebrates artistic creation that demonstrate conceptual and technological innovation related to visual information communication and interaction. We accept project types include data art, generative art, interactive graphics, real-time simulation, scientific illustration, creative and critical visualization, and more. The art gallery call is open-theme, and this year we especially encourage artworks that respond to environmental and health issues or explore the relationship between art and science. Projects that thoughtfully engage with recent popular interests in machine learning, blockchain, and metaverse are also welcome.

Artwork submissions to the Art Gallery should include a 1-to-2-page poster / description / artist’s statement. The artwork should be completed within the last 5 years (in or after 2018) and ready to be installed. We do not place restrictions on previously exhibited work, but the accompanying poster / description / statement should not have been published or accepted for publication elsewhere. 

Selected works will be exhibited in the brand new HKUST-GZ Multimedia and XR Spaces. We will further work with selected artists to discuss exhibition logistics and the final display form. Shipping of physical objects is expected to be covered by the artist(s) unless otherwise noted.

All Art Gallery submissions should be made through EasyChair (easychair.org). Submission materials include:

Submission form: with basic information including title, year, medium, abstract, etc.

Main image in JPG or PNG format for promotional use.

Up to 3 additional images in JPG or PNG format for web publication and communication.

An accompanying poster / description / artist’s statement of up to 2 pages. This document should not have been published or accepted for publication elsewhere. 

For screen-based, installation, or interactive work: video of up to 5 minutes in MP4 or MOV format.>

For static 2D/3D work: up to 6 images in JPG or PNG format. 

Installation specification: details for installing the work, including dimension, required floor / wall space, power, hardware, sound, network, furniture, etc. Including optional images of installation illustration or documentation.

For logistics questions regarding installation and equipment, please contact vinciinfo23 at gmail.com.


VINCI '23 is also soliciting proposals for full-day or half-day workshops and tutorials on topics that address areas of interest to the community. In particular, workshop proposals should include:

- A title and brief description of the specific issues that the workshop will address, the reasons why the workshop is of interest to VINCI, 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 accepted.

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.
