*CALL FOR PARTICIPATIONIEEE VIS 2018 is the premier forum for advances in
visualization. The event-packed week brings together researchers and
practitioners from academia, government, and industry to explore their
shared interests in tools, techniques, and technology. We invite you to
participate in IEEE Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), IEEE
Information Visualization (InfoVis), and IEEE Scientific Visualization
(SciVis) by sharing your research, insights, experience, and enthusiasm.We
solicit Workshops, Tutorials, Doctoral Colloquium, and Poster submissions
for IEEE VIS 2018 in Berlin, Germany.===============New Submission
Record===============The submission deadlines for VAST, InfoVis and SciVis
have passed and we are happy to inform you that in total 476 full papers
were submitted.This is a new all-time VIS submission record!!! Thank you
for submitting your best work to the VIS main conferences. The review
process is on its way.For details, visit
===============VAST Challenge 2018===============Submission deadline: July
13, 2018The Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) Challenge is an
annual contest with the goal of advancing the field of visual analytics
through competition. The VAST Challenge is designed to help researchers
understand how their software would be used in a novel analytic task and
determine if their data transformations, visualizations, and interactions
would be beneficial for particular analytic tasks. VAST Challenge problems
provide researchers with realistic data sets and questions for evaluating
their software, as well as an opportunity to advance the field by solving
more complex problems. This year, we return to the Boonsong Lekagul
Wildlife Preserve scenario from 2017, as complications from last year’s
situation have arisen, providing new opportunities to apply visual
analytics (and other data analytic) skills.  Look for mini-challenge data
to become available throughout the month of April. For details, visit
vast-challenge at ieeevis.org

 2018===============Submission deadline: July 31, 2018The SciVis contest is
an annual contest providing scientific datasets for visualization and data
analysis. This year an ensemble of asteroid impacts into deep ocean water
designed to study asteroid generated tsunami (AGT) is provided. These data
sets provide an opportunity for visualization researchers to apply their
techniques and produce visually stunning and informative imagery to provide
domain specialist with a deeper understanding of their data.The winning
submission will be awarded with the opportunity of a full journal article.
All approved submissions will be able to present their work as a
presentation and during the poster session. For details, visit:
