IEEE Visualization '96


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION FOR IEEE SYMPOSIUM ON INFORMATION VISUALIZATION SYMPOSIUM (INFOVIS '97)


October 20-21, 1997
Phoenix, Arizona

InfoVis '97, the third Information Visualization Symposium, will be held to focus on the emerging area of information visualization. Increasing amounts of data and information and the availability of fast digital network access (e.g., in the information highway environment) have created a demand for querying, accessing, and retrieving information and data. However, information technology will not transform business, science, medicine, engineering, and education if the users cannot use it easily and efficiently. Technology must come to the users, taking their needs into account. If we do not involve the users, we will develop useless systems. InfoVis '97 will focus on all aspects of visualizing information and how users interact with digital information . It will foster an exchange of ideas on all aspects of information visualization and human-information interface, and how advances in interactive computer graphics hardware, mass storage, and data visualization could be used to visualize information. Submissions are solicited in all areas of information visualization and human-information interfaces, including, but not limited to, such topics as: Papers should be at most 8,000 words in length including an abstract, affiliation, and keywords, and should present previously unpublished original results. Video submissions (NTSC VHS) with papers are welcome, but are not required. Videos will assist reviewers' assessment of the technical soundness of submitted papers, and will not be returned.
