LEipzig symposium on Visualization In Applications

14/15 NOVEMBER 2019


LEipzig symposium on Visualization In Applications (LEVIA) aims at bringing together visualization scholars from all research areas related to visualization. The focus of the symposium is to shed a light on different application areas that enable scientific knowledge discovery with visualizations. The program will be structured along several visualization application areas.



Means of visualization are widely used in diverse application domains to analyze data, to facilitate hypothesis verification and generation, to derive new data, and to discover trends, outliers and data-dependent features. Collaborative aspects between visualization scholars and domain experts as well as design studies and the development of novel visualization techniques that shed a new light on known data objects are in the scope of the symposium. We welcome papers describing original work, i.e. hitherto unpublished scientific or information visualization research. Suggested application domains include, but are not limited to:

  • bioinformatics
  • business and finance
  • digital humanities
  • earth, space, and environmental sciences
  • geovisualization
  • material sciences
  • molecular, biomedical, and medical visualization
  • multimedia visualization (image/video/music)
  • physical sciences and engineering
  • social and information sciences
  • software visualization
  • text visualization
  • urban science
  • visual analytics
  • visualization for the masses


Papers are only accepted in English, they should be carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, and authors should address one or several application domains of visualization. Papers will be reviewed by at least three experts in the field. In order to facilitate a double-blind paper evaluation method, we kindly request authors to submit their paper without any explicit reference to any of the authors. Please make sure that submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings. In such a case, papers will be rejected without reviews. LEVIA calls for long papers (up to 8 pages + 1 page for references) and short papers (up to 4 pages + 1 page for references). Accepted long papers will receive a long talk slot (25 min. talk + 5 min. for questions) while accepted short papers will receive a short talk slot (15 min. talk + 3 min. for questions).

Paper Template
We accept papers from 4 up to 8 pages (+ 1 page for references) that have been prepared using this IEEE Journal and Conference Template.

All accepted papers will be long-term archived and made online available through the publication service of Leipzig University. The publications will be published under CC-BY-4.0 license, and each publication will receive a unique URN from the German National Library that can be used for citations.
