IEEE Visualization 1999

Call for Demonstrations

Audience

Visualization ‘99 will bring together nearly 600 experts from around the world in the growing field of visualization and its applications. This audience of innovators, representing academia, business and government, purchases and recommends advanced computer hardware and software for their organizations. Demonstrations are held on Wednesday and Thursday of the five-day conference program. Additional symposia and tutorials are held on Sunday through Tuesday of the conference week.

About the Conference

The conference is a five-day program that allows the attendees time to discuss and exchange ideas. These people see the trends in their organizations and develop methods and applications that become standards. The interaction has always been mentally stimulating since visualization research often inspires new products that make advanced research possible.

Visualization of data and information is a vital research and applications frontier shared by a variety of science, medical, engineering, business, and entertainment fields. The tenth IEEE Visualization conference focuses on interdisciplinary methods and supports collaboration among the developers and users of visualization methods across all of science, engineering, medicine, and commerce. The Conference Week will include tutorials, symposia, and mini-workshops Sunday through Tuesday, and a track for papers with a parallel track for panels and case studies Wednesday through Friday.

Additionally, industry and local media will be invited to the conference.

Demonstrations will be held on Wednesday and Thursday during the conference.

Demonstration Structure

Visualization ‘99 is a unique opportunity to present your product to visualization experts from a wide variety of fields. We invite applications for demonstrations of commercial hardware, software, integrated systems, peripherals, and literature.

The conference encourages demonstrations to be more of a "technical" presentation as opposed to the typical "marketing" atmosphere that exists at other trade shows. The show floor is made up of 8 x 10 booths that are usually represented by the developers of the product. The attendees will ask technical questions that will be more advanced than the typical marketing representative can answer.

Research groups from academia and research labs are also invited to demonstrate their work at Visualization ‘99. Proposals should summarize the work to be presented and identify the hardware/software platform required.

You will be allowed to hand out your marketing materials. Arrangement can also be made for private technical or Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (e.g., Users’ group meeting).
