Accepted survey papers will be published in the Journal of Visual
Informatics for English manuscripts and Journal of Computer-Aided Design & Computer Graphics
for Chinese manuscripts.
Survey papers will be reviewed in a three-stage process: initial two-page sketch,
first-round, and the second-round reviews. First, authors submit an initial sketch, which
briefly describes the planned survey by outlining the topic, provides the planned structure
and outline of the survey, and lists all key references. The length of a sketch is limited
to two pages. Second, selected sketch authors are invited to submit a full survey paper for
the first-round review. A survey paper is conditionally accepted if it is recommended by
reviewers, and the authors need to revise the manuscript to address the issues raised by the
reviewers and resubmit to journal submission systems. The papers that meet the revision
requirements will be formally accepted.
All submissions must be unpublished original work. If the paper has been reviewed and
rejected by other international visualization conferences or journals, the authors can
attach the past reviews and provide a “Cover Letter” to clarify the improvement of the
paper. Each submission will be reviewed anonymously by experts from multiple domains.
The conference uses the Precision Conference System (PCS) system (https://new.precisionconference.com/chinavis) for the review of
initial sketches and first-round submissions. Choose “Survey” paper type in the submission
form. Authors are required to submit the second-round submissions to Visual Informatics or
Journal of Computer-Aided Design and Computer Graphics. Separate instructions will be sent
to authors if the paper is conditionally accepted by the first-round review.
Survey papers in English are required to use the Visual Informatics template requirements
For Chinese survey papers, refer to the Journal of Computer-Aided Design & Computer Graphics
