|Supplemental Material for TVCG - VAST/InfoVis/SciVis Full Papers|
IEEE Computer Society Transactions accepts supplemental materials for review with regular paper submissions. Types of supplemental material can include: proofs, code, experimental data, short movies, appendices, animations, PDF with embedded multimedia and audio files. These materials may be published on our Digital Library with the electronic version of the paper, where they can be accessed for free.
If an appendix makes a manuscript exceed the page limit, you will be asked to designate the appendix as supplemental material. If the paper's appendix is not designated as supplemental material, you must reduce the paper in order to fit the page limit.
All materials must follow US copyright guidelines and may not include material previously copyrighted by another author, organization or company. Please see our guidelines below for file specifications and information. Any submitted materials that do not follow these specifications will not be accepted.
PDF with embedded Multimedia: File size must be minimized and download time must be considered. We recommend files not exceed 50MB and that authors submit files that play on any platform (Windows, Linux, Mac OS). Files larger than 50MB may be returned for modification to make them smaller. Adobe Acrobat Pro 7 and newer easily allow for embedding of objects in a PDF file. See 'Tools' --> 'Multimedia' in the Adobe Acrobat menu.
