Technical Committee on Visualization and Graphics
The Visualization and Graphics TC (vgTC) promotes research in computer graphics, visualization, visual analytics, virtual reality, and mixed and augmented reality, as well as the application of these topics to science, engineering, medicine, business, and the arts. Research interests include hardware, software, algorithms, and user interfaces. Specific topics of emphasis within the TC are visualization, visual analytics, computer graphics, virtual reality, and mixed and augmented reality. The TC sponsors three major conference series: (1) IEEE VIS which consists of IEEE Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), IEEE Information Visualization, and IEEE Scientific Visualization, (2) IEEE Virtual Reality, and (3) IEEE Augmented and Mixed Reality (ISMAR). Also sponsored is the IEEE Pacific Visualization Symposium (PacificVis). The TC has been responsible for several special issues of Computer, IEEE CG&A, and IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG), and it has led the effort of publishing the proceedings of VIS and VR as annual special issues in IEEE TVCG.
