Star Reviewers

VIE is pleased to announce its second “Star Reviewers”. All reviewers involved in peer review of manuscripts submitted to VIE from July 2013 to June 2014 were considered for this distinction. The editors in the VIE office ranked candidates in three dimensions: Response and turn-over time, Reviewer comments, and Job completeness. On the basis of these criteria, three reviewers were chosen as Star Reviewers:

  • Prof. Jack C. P. Cheng, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
  • Prof. Ming Lu, University of Alberta
  • Prof. Koji Makanae, Miyagi University

Their contributions to the overall quality of the research, scholarship, and impact of VIE are appreciated by our authors and readers alike.

Aims & scope


Visualization in Engineering publishes original research results regarding visualization paradigms, models, technologies, and applications that contribute significantly to the advancement of engineering in all branches, including medical, biological, civil, architectural, mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, aerospace, and meteorological engineering and beyond. The journal solicits research papers with particular emphasis on essential research problems, innovative solutions, and rigorous validations. All submitted articles should explicitly include these three main elements. The journal publishes content in the form of research articles, review papers, technical notes, and case studies.

These original papers typically:
• report the latest progress in the engineering discipline with regard to applying visualization methods
• are relevant to visualization and help to provide a scientific basis by which decision-making in engineering becomes more reliable, spontaneous, and creative
• contain novel research that demonstrates the science behind knowledge-intensive engineering tasks
• validate the generality, power, and scalability of new methods through rigorous evaluation, both qualitatively and quantitatively
• conduct rigorous reviews of state-of-the-art visualization technologies that facilitate engineering tasks
• demonstrate practical and robust case studies in which innovative approaches are implemented.

Submission requirements

Articles presented in this journal should explicitly include three main elements: a research problem, an innovative solution, and rigorous validation. The research problem should have significant importance to the field and rich scientific merit. The innovative solution should be a novel visualization-related approach, which should include specialist knowledge and be feasible to implement, to solve the target research problem. Validation should primarily test the performance and usability of the innovative solution, and may include qualitative and quantitative methods.

The authors are expected to clearly present these three elements in the abstract. At the beginning of the submitted manuscript, the authors must provide a separate page summarizing them in three to five sentences each.

The article-processing charge (APC) of each submission can be potentially waived as soon as the authors notify the editor of their waiver request at viejournaloffice@gmail.com, prior to submission of the article.


Upcoming conferences

  •  ITC 2014
    • We are very pleased to announce that 2014 International Conference on Innovative Technologies in Construction (ITC 2014) will be hosted in Northeastern University (Shenyang, China) in 3-5 July 2014. The conference website can be accessed in http://conf.neu.edu.cn/itc2014/

      This upcoming event will become a leading academic forum for a wide range of innovative technologies and their research and applications in construction and other civil engineering disciplines. ITC 2014 is co-organized by the Australasian Joint Research Centre on Building Information Modelling. For the details of this organization, please refer to http://research.humanities.curtin.edu.au/centres/bim/

  •  CONVR
    • The International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR) brings together researchers and applicants from a wide range of architecture, civil engineering and the construction industry and enhance the exchange of concepts and methods for the application of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). The aim of the conference is to report on ideas, improvements, and applications of innovative international research activities and on strategies for the future development of research perspectives. For further information, please visit the CONVR Organization website (http://www.convr.org/).

      The 13th International Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR 2013) will take place on 30-31 October 2013 in London, UK. For more details please visit http://www.convr2013.com/.
