IEEE Visualization '96


WELCOME TO IEEE VISUALIZATION '96


We would like to welcome you to the seventh annual IEEE Visualization conference. Continuing in the tradition of the conference, we believe that we have another strong technical program that addresses the varied aspects of visualization; algorithms, techniques and applications. We also have a new conference topic; Late Breaking Hot Topics, which consists of late breaking topics or works in progress. In addition we have brought back the popular Capstone Address on Friday.

The conference week has a varied program for you to choose from. We have three Symposia this year; Information Visualization, Volume Visualization, and a new symposium on IBM's Data Explorer. Also, tutorials are offered Sunday through Tuesday and cover subjects for the beginner and the advanced attendee. The technical program starts Wednesday and begins with a Keynote Address, followed by concurrent sessions of papers, panels, and case studies presenting the latest issues, research, and applications in visualization. Demonstrations of visualization products, tools, and applications will begin mid-day on Wednesday and continue through Thursday afternoon.

We hope you can join us in San Francisco the week of October 27 - November 1, 1996 for IEEE Visualization '96. Besides the technical program, you have a chance to meet and talk with leaders in the field of visualization and see one of the prettiest areas in the world (the San Francisco Bay Area).
