3. VisSec (Symposium on Visualization for Cyber Security)


The 13th IEEE Symposium on Visualization for Cyber Security (VizSec) is a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to address the needs of the cybersecurity community through new and insightful visualization and analysis techniques. VizSec provides an excellent venue for fostering greater exchange and new collaborations on a broad range of security- and privacy-related topics. The purpose of VizSec is to explore effective and scalable visual interfaces for security domains such as network security, computer forensics, reverse engineering, insider threat detection, cryptography, privacy, user assisted attacks prevention, compliance management, wireless security, secure coding, and penetration testing.

Submission deadline: August 1, 2016

4. VDS (Visualization in Data Science)


Visualization is an integral part of data science, and essential to enable sophisticated analysis of data. VDS will bring together domain scientists and methods researchers (including data visualization, usability, data management, artificial intelligence, machine learning, statistics, programming environments, scalable software).

We solicit contributions in the form of short abstracts based on 
* novel work, 
* previously published work or,
* position statements

Selected contributions will be invited to speak at the workshop. 
Submission deadline: August 5, 2016

5. Student Volunteer


The Student Volunteer Program is looking for reliable, hard working and enthusiastic student volunteers to help us create a great experience and a premier conference. Each year student volunteers provide essential support to the IEEE VIS Conference. Their enthusiastic participation enhances the conference experience for all the attendees. Student Volunteers benefit by observing first-hand the latest advances in visualization, hearing and meeting world-class as well as next-generation visualization professionals from around the world, and building a network of research colleagues.

Application deadline: August 1, 2016

6. BioVis Posters


The BioVis 2016 Posters track offers a venue to present and discuss new research in biological data visualization. Submissions take the form of a short (250-word) abstract with a supporting figure and are presented at the conference site as large format posters during a dedicated poster session. The BioVis workshop as a whole aims to promote interaction between the visualization, bioinformatics, and biology communities, and the BioVis poster session offers an interactive forum that encourages graphical presentation, demonstration, and active engagement with BioVis participants as well as all attendees of IEEE VIS.

Submission deadline: August 26, 2016
