To be considered for oral or poster presentations, authors must submit a paper or an abstract.

Online Submission

Papers must be submitted online at

Submission Guidelines

  • Paper Formatting: Full papers are limited to eight pages (demos and posters to two pages). Authors should consider using the AMIA paper templates.
  • Publication: The method that will be used to publish accepted papers will be announced prior to the paper deadline. We are currently working with different journals that are interested in publishing some of the accepted papers.

Review process:

Papers will be reviewed based on novelty, contribution, and relevance to the area of visualization, visual analytics, and health informatics. The program committee, which includes physicians and visualization experts, will review each submission and select a set of papers for oral presentation and other papers for poster presentations.

No show policy

At least one author of accepted paper and poster presentations are expected to attend the workshop. VAHC reserves the right to ban authors from future workshops if their accepted paper or poster is not presented at the conference.
