Poster Submission Info for BioVis@VIS

General Information

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.

The large format poster itself is NOT required in the submission. We strongly encourage, but do not require, all authors to include an accompanying video or other supplementary materials. Please limit supplementary material to widely accepted file formats such as MPEG (.mpg), QuickTime (.mov) or AVI (.avi) for videos; PDF for documents; and PNG or JPG for images. Please refer to the section Deadlines above for links to the conference submission systems.

Review Process

Each poster submission will be read and evaluated by the Poster Chairs for quality and relevance to the BioVis venue with the goal of being as inclusive as possible and encouraging cross-domain interactions. Brief feedback will be provided as needed to support acceptance decisions, but authors should not expect detailed reviews. There will not be a revision cycle. Authors should check their initial abstract submission carefully as this is the copy that will appear on the BioVis web site.
