JapanVis is a new international-domestic-hybrid symposium administered by Visualization Society of Japan, that solicits research contributionn in all areas of computer visualization such as information visualization, scientific visualization, visual analytics, and visualization applications.

The first day of the symposium organizes international paper sessions in conjunction with Journal of Visualization (JoV).

* Administered by Visualization Society of Japan

Call for Papers


The scope of the international paper sessions follows the scope of Journal of Visualization. Submissions need to include an exhaustive survey of related work published by computer visualization journals and conferences.


Submissions of the international paper sessions are reviewed by the international program committee of the symposium. Excellent submissions are accepted as journal-track papers and will be published by Journal of Visualization after a quick review process. Other submissions are accepted as non-archival conference papers if they fit the scope of the symposium. Conference papers are strongly recommended to be submitted to Journal of Visualization after carefully revising according to review comments.


Submissions must follow the guideline of Journal of Visualization . The LaTeX template of Springer Nature is strongly recommended.
NOTE: Though the guideline Web page describes "not exceeding 8 pages", the journal usually accepts papers that exceed 8 pages. Similarly, this symposium can accept papers that exceed 8 pages.

EasyChair is open for online submission:
