VINCI 2017
The 10th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction 
Bangkok, Thailand, 14-16 August 2017
Poster submission deadline 12 June 2017                                                      



Visual communication through graphical or sign languages has long been conducted among human 
beings of different backgrounds or cultures, and in recent decades between human and machine. 
In today's digital world, visual information is typically encoded with various metaphors commonly
used in daily life to facilitate rapid comprehension and easy analysis during the communication process.
Visual information communication generally encompasses information visualization, graphical user-interfaces, visual analytics, and visual languages. Visual information is increasingly being used to facilitate 
human-human communication through the Internet and mobile devices.
The Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction (VINCI) (vinci-conf.org) is the
premier international forum for researchers and industrial practitioners to discuss the state-of-the-art
in visual communication theories, designs, and applications. The 10th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction (VINCI'17) will be held during 14-16 August 2017, in Bangkok, Thailand.
All accepted posters will be published by ACM Press and made available in the ACM Digital Library (EI indexed). 

We solicit original, unpublished research posters that focus on all aspects of visual information 
communication and interaction, either via images, computer graphics, 
animations, virtual reality, web, or other media. Research papers may 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

Cognitive aspects of visual information comprehension
Empirical studies of novel visual metaphor
Visual interaction through multimodality
Visual approaches for knowledge discovery
Computational aesthetics
Visual analytics
Graph drawing and (multivariate) network visualization
Information visualization
Graphical user interface design
Aesthetics in visual communication
Influence of visual arts and design
Visual modeling languages and UML
Visual communication metaphors
Visual programming languages
Visualization on mobile devices
Applications like SoftVis, BioVis, GeoVis, ...
Human-computer interaction

Submissions that address research and development, as well as experience reports 
and tool demonstrations on the above and other related topics are strongly encouraged. 
All accepted  posters will appear in the proceedings of VINCI 2017 published by ACM 
Press and made available in the ACM Digital Library (EI indexed). 
Posters are up to two  ACM double-column pages,and should be submitted through easychair.org.
