Acceptance Rates for Publications in Virtual Reality / Graphics / HCI / Visualization / Vision


The numbers were collected from many sources (conference proceedings prefaces, journal reports on conferences, Google search, and so on). There is no guarantee of correctness, yet, when possible, attempts were made to double check the numbers from different sources. In cases of different sources claiming different rates, you can see different numbers in brackets. The differences can come from, for example, including or excluding short papers.

Please, let me know (mail), if you have some additional statistics, or if you see some mistakes.

Many thanks to all contributors, ESPECIALLY to Branislav Ulicny for originally compiling and maintaining this list for many years!
