Adelaide, Australia
Event Date: September 28, 2020 - September 29, 2020
Submission Deadline: June 26, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: July 24, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due: August 07, 2020


The eight IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization (VISSOFT 2020) builds upon the success of the previous seven editions of VISSOFT, which in turn followed after six editions of the IEEE International Workshop on Visualizing Software for Understanding and Analysis (VISSOFT) and five editions of the ACM Symposium on Software Visualization (SOFTVIS). In 2020, VISSOFT will again be co-located with ICSME in Adelaide, Australia.

Call for Papers

Software visualization is a broad research area whose general goal is to enhance and promote the theory, realization, and evaluation of approaches to visually encode and analyze software systems, including software development practices, evolution, structure, and software runtime behavior. Software visualization is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing on theories and techniques from information visualization and computer graphics and applying these in the software engineering domain.

The VISSOFT conference is principally a venue for publishing and discussing research related to software visualization. VISSOFT brings together a community of researchers from software engineering, information visualization, computer graphics, human-computer interaction, and data science to discuss theoretical foundations, algorithms, techniques, tools, and applications related to software visualization.

This year’s VISSOFT, co-held with ICSME, encourages a variety of submissions that address outstanding challenges in software systems using visualization. This includes technical papers, empirical studies, applications, case studies, and papers that present novel ideas and tools.

Topics of interest include:

  • Innovative visualization and visual analytics techniques for analysis of software engineering data. This includes source code, dependencies, repositories, developer social networks like StackOverflow and GitHub, mobile app reviews, documentation, runtime logs, and DevOps data.
  • Visualization to support software development activities, including design, requirements engineering, program comprehension, software testing, and debugging.
  • Interaction techniques and algorithms for software visualization.
  • Visualization-based techniques in software engineering education.
  • Integration of software visualization tools with development environments.
  • Empirical evaluation of software visualizations, including eye tracking.
  • Industrial experience with using software visualization.
  • Applications of new technologies to enhance software visualization, including virtual reality, augmented reality, gamification, and machine learning.
  • Analytical approaches to understand software-related aspects based on data science concepts

We solicit papers that present original, unpublished research results. Papers will be rigorously reviewed by an international program committee. In addition to technical papers, VISSOFT features a New Ideas or Emerging Results (NIER) track and a Tools track. All accepted submissions will appear in the conference proceedings and the IEEE Digital Library.


VISSOFT 2020 : IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization will take place in Adelaide, Australia. It’s a 2 days event starting on Sep 28, 2020 (Monday) and will be winded up on Sep 29, 2020 (Tuesday).

VISSOFT 2020 falls under the following areas: SOFTWARE VISUALIZATION, COMPUTER VISION, etc. Submissions for this Conference can be made by Jun 26, 2020. Authors can expect the result of submission by Jul 24, 2020. Upon acceptance, authors should submit the final version of the manuscript on or before Aug 07, 2020 to the official website of the Conference.

Please check the official event website for possible changes before you make any travelling arrangements. Generally, events are strict with their deadlines. It is advisable to check the official website for all the deadlines.
