h2-logoPaper Types

Papers: This section of the conference serves as a link between young students and Academica by offering creative views and various research applications. Young Talent Summit aims to encourage young potential scholars such as high school students to present their original research/findings for the analysis and visualization in the advanced technologies. The topics range from experimental and interdisciplinary applications to critical analysis.

There are two formats: short (≤ 4 pages) and poster (≤ 2 pages). The short paper demonstrates an in-depth analysis and a relatively novel contribution, while the poster papers share alternative approaches, ideas or experiments.

h2-logoScope & Topics

We solicit original, unpublished research papers that focus on all aspects of the analysis and visualization in advanced technologies. Papers can address from various aspects, like cognitive and design aspects, underlying theories, taxonomies, implementation work, tool support, and case studies. All the authors should be the high school students with/without one instructor. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Visual communication metaphors
  • Cognitive aspects of visual information comprehension
  • Empirical studies of novel visual metaphors
  • Visualization on artificial intelligence, machine learning and other fields
  • Explainable artificial intelligence
  • Aesthetics in visual communication and computational aesthetics
  • Influence of visual arts and design to visual communication
  • Information visualization and visual analytics
  • Visual approaches to knowledge discovery
  • Visual interaction through multimodality
  • Visualization on mobile devices
  • Graph drawing and network visualization
  • Visual modeling languages
  • Visual programming languages
  • Graphical user interface design
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Applications in SoftVis, BioVis, GeoVis, etc.
  • Analysis and visualization of advanced technologies, like metaverse, Web 3.0 etc

Specifically, we invite original works from creating innovative and culturally rich program will act as the bridge between young talent and Academica to rethink and explore the future of our society.

  • Projects and case studies: Papers in this category rigorously document a realized project that combines computer techniques with creative practice. They also critically explore its social, cultural, and affective impact.
  • Methodological contributions: Papers in this category identify, document, and explore emergent methodological approaches that open new pathways to the practice.
  • History, theory, and criticism: Papers in this category offer new historical, theoretical, and critical perspectives on current advanced technologies.

Beyond the difference in length, short papers will favor full academic practices to generate original knowledge, for instance, through an extensive literature review, argumentation, and observations or evaluations of the human impact through validated protocols.

Research Papers: A research paper describes a new algorithm, technique, system, or theory that have not previously appeared in the literature, or that significantly extended.

Poster Papers: A poster paper reports on experience made during the applications of existing algorithms, techniques, systems, or theories as possibly alternative approaches to already researched problems in visual communication and interaction. This includes a description of a problem domain, data sets, the questions to be addressed, and describes the application to the task.


A number of ACM/HKUST-GZ awards will be selected and certificates presented at the end of the summit.
