The purpose of the International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC) is to provide a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in the broader area of visual computing. This is the fourth in the series of symposia following three very successful meetings in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

ISVC08 will consist of invited and contributed presentations dealing with all aspects of visual computing. In addition to the main technical program, the symposium will include several keynote speakers, posters sessions, and special tracks. All papers accepted will appear in the symposium proceedings which will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Two "best paper awards", each worth of $500, are sponsored by Siemens and MERL.


ISCV seeks papers describing contributions to the state of the art and state of the practice in the field of visual computing. The symposium is structured around the four central areas of visual computing: (1) computer vision, (2) computer graphics, (3) virtual reality, and (4) visualization. In particular, we are interested in papers that combine technologies from two or more of these areas.
