IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization (InfoVis '97)
IEEE Symposium On Information Visualization
(InfoVis '97)


October 20 - October 21, 1997
Sheraton Crescent Hotel, Phoenix, AZ

Early registration (hotel and conference) ended Sept. 26

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Graphics

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 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.
