In 1996, the IAVS started to publish its official journal, VISIO, Revue internationale de sémiotique visuelle, with the financial and logistic support of the CRSHC and the CÉLAT, at the Faculty of Literature, Université Laval, in Quebec City.
VISIO has published 4 thematic issues per year, from 1996 until 2004, under the direction of invited editors, and has accepted articles written in the three official languages: French, English and Spanish. Fernande Saint-Martin, from the Université du Québec à Montréal, has been the general director, and Marie Carani, from the Université Laval, has been the editor-in-chief. The honorary committee was composed by Hubert Damisch, Umberto Eco and Boris Uspensky. In the editorial committee have served José Luis Caivano, from the University of Buenos Aires, Michel Costantini, from the Paris 8 University, Jacques Fontanille, from the University of Limoges, Donald Preziosi, from the University of California, Los Angeles, and Göran Sonesson, from the University of Lund in Sweden.
