Call For Papers
PacificVis is a unified visualization symposium, welcoming all areas of visualization research such as information visualization, scientific visualization, graph and network visualization, visual analytics, and specific applications such as (but not limited to) security, software, and biological visualization. Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research and application papers in all areas of visualization. We encourage papers in any new, novel, and exciting research area that pertains to visualization.

All submitted papers will go through a two-stage review process to guarantee the publication of high-quality papers. All papers accepted by IEEE Pacific Visualization 2020 will be published by IEEE and will be also included in the IEEE Digital Library. Selected papers will be published directly in IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG).

Papers are to be submitted online through the new Precision Conference System (Click) at the PacificVis 2020 Papers track.

Original unpublished papers of up to ten (10) pages (two-column, single-spaced, 9 point font, including figures, tables, and references) are invited. Manuscripts must be written in English and follow the formatting guidelines. It is recommended (but not mandatory) to submit an anonymized version of your manuscript for double-blind review - in this case, please remove all author and affiliation information from submissions and supplemental files as well as substitute your paper's ID number for the author name. Papers should be submitted electronically in Adobe PDF format. Please provide supplemental videos in QuickTime MPEG-4 or DivX version 5, and use TIFF, JPEG, or PNG for supplemental images.
