The IEEE VIS 2015 Doctoral Colloquium seeks a wider area distribution for the colloquium than we currently have. Submissions from the InfoVis and SciVis communities are particularly encouraged.The extended deadline for DC submissions is Monday May 25, 2015, 5pm PST. Partial travel support will be provided to participating students.

The DC is a single-day invitation-only event taking place the day before IEEE VIS, where Ph.D. students in any visualization field—preferably those at the proposal defence stage or equivalent—present their proposed dissertation work and receive feedback from leading senior visualization researchers. Contributions from the scientific visualization, information visualization, and visual analytics student communities are invited to submit.

The colloquium will allow students to discuss their research directions in a supportive atmosphere with a panel of distinguished leaders and with their peers. Students can expect helpful feedback and fresh perspectives on their research topics and possible career paths, and will have the opportunity to interact closely with expert researchers in their field. The colloquium will support community-building by connecting beginning and advanced researchers. Further details can be found at
