IEEE VIS 2017 Arts Program - Sustain & Decay - Exhibition Track

Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: IEEE VIS (VISAP'17)
Deadline: Fri, June 23rd, 2017

The IEEE VIS 2017 Arts Program, or VISAP’17, showcases innovative artwork and research that explores the exciting and increasingly prominent intersections between art, design, and visualization. Through a dedicated papers track and an exhibition that runs concurrently with the IEEE VIS 2017 conference, the Arts Program aims to foster new thinking, discussion, and collaboration between artists, designers, technologists, visualization scientists, and others working at the intersection of these fields.


Our theme this year is Sustain & Decay. Inspired by last year’s VIS keynote presentation by Dr. Ricardo Hausmann and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we invite researchers, design practitioners, and artists to investigate data for sustainable development and to think about effective and provocative ways to represent complex interdependencies within and between ecological, socio-technical, political, and urban systems, as well as other types of interfaces between dynamic systems.


In addition, we encourage submissions to focus on the myriad relationships between process and artifact. What are the creative and practical processes that are required to produce data-driven interactive artworks, visualizations, and installations? We are interested in how the submitted works can influence and transform the way we understand the world around us, but also in how the design processes that go into the creation of these works can influence the way we perceive and understand them.


The VISAP’17 exhibition and papers sessions will take place at the Phoenix Convention Center during the first week in October, co-located with IEEE VIS. Selected artworks and design submissions will be installed in an exhibition setting that is open to the general public as well as to VIS attendees. All accepted submissions will be featured in the VISAP’17 Exhibition Catalog, and selected entries will be featured in a special section within an issue of Leonardo, the Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology. All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore digital library. Additionally, selected authors will be invited to prepare a revised, longer version of their papers for submission to IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications.


All submissions are due on June 23rd, 2017. Details about the submission process and author guidelines can be found at the VISAP’17 website:


We look forward to your participation!
