VAHC 2021 will have a new paper format! We will accept short papers with four pages plus one page of references (4+1). In addition, authors are encouraged to add additional figures to an appendix (A) section at the end of the manuscript. This allows authors to present more of their interesting visualization results at greater resolutions, resulting in the paper format "4+A+1".

VAHC will also have revised paper types! We encourage a diverse range of submissions and demonstrations from academia, healthcare organizations, and industry in any of the short paper types listed below:

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore digital library. Authors of accepted papers and abstracts can choose not to publish their paper on IEEE Xplore.

Accepted short papers will be included in the VAHC proceedings and made available via IEEE VIS or digital download.

Demo: Every short paper may be accompanied by an optional video demo submission.

All material should be submitted via the Precision Conference System (PCS):

For all submissions, please use the VGTC conference style template:
