Online submission is required for all types of submissions. All submission must be formatted according to the ACM SIG format http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html. The submission site will be soon available on the AVI 2016 website.


Full and Short Papers are archival publications that address AVI 2016 topics and describe original unpublished research in the following general categories: For full and short papers a 250-words abstract is requested before submission. Maximum length of long papers is 8 pages. Maximum length of short papers is 4 pages. Submissions must be anonymized. Accepted full and short research papers will be included in the Proceedings published by ACM Press and will be available in the ACM Digital Library. For each accepted paper, at least one author must register to AVI 2016 by the early registration deadline and present the paper at the conference.


The AVI 2016 Poster Track provides researchers and practitioners with the opportunity for presenting their work-in-progress, obtaining precious feedback from their peers, in an informal setting. The poster session provides conference attendees the chance of being aware of novel and on-going research projects, whose preliminary results are already interesting. Poster submissions must be up to 2 pages (not anonymized). Accepted poster papers will be included in the Proceedings published by ACM Press and will be available in the ACM Digital Library. Poster authors are required to register for the conference and to bring a poster to be displayed in a dedicated area; they are also required to attend the dedicated poster session and to present their work there.


A Demo for AVI2016 is something that can be shown in order to demonstrate a completed or on-going research effort. We are looking for (prototypical or full) implementations of novel and interesting concepts or systems related to the main topics of AVI. Demonstrations will be presented in a dedicated session. Demonstrators are required to bring their own equipment. Demo proposals (not anonymized) must include a description of the demo (up to 2 pages) and a separate page shortly describing the equipment used and the space requirements or other special requirements (if any.) Accepted demo papers will be included in the Proceedings published by ACM Press and will be available in the ACM Digital Library. Demo presenters authors are required to register for the conference and to bring the necessary equipment; they are also required to attend the dedicated demo session and to present their demo there.


AVI 2016 will include workshops on emerging topics as well as established ones that are relevant to visual interface design research and practice. Workshops will be held on Tuesday June 7, 2016.
Workshops provide an opportunity for small groups to meet, have in-depth discussions, develop new research directions, exchange ideas, and strengthen research communities. Workshops should favor discussions, demonstrations and exchange rather than being miniature conference sessions. A workshop may be half-day or full day in length, and should aim to attract 15 to 20 participants. Workshop proposals (4 pages max) should include:
1) Workshop title, names and contact information for organizers, and proposed workshop length;
2) A 150 word abstract (to appear in the AVI website);
3) A draft 300-word call for participation to be used to publicize the workshop;
4) Additional information: previous related workshops (if any), timing of plans for attracting participants, proposed workshop activities, possible workshop outcomes;
5) Short CV or bio for each of the organizers, mentioning previous event organizing experience.
Upon acceptance, workshop organizers will be asked to create a webpage for their workshop and start broadcasting their call for participation within 2 weeks. An extended abstract will appear in the conference proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
