IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization
(InfoVis '99)

October 24 - October 29, 1999
San Francisco Airport Hyatt
San Francisco, CA

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Graphics

InfoVis '99, the fifth Information Visualization Symposium, will be held to focus on the rapidly growing area of information visualization. Increasing amounts of data and information and the availability of fast digital network access are creating a rapidly growing demand for accessing, querying and retrieving information and data. However, information technology will not transform business, science, medicine, engineering, and education if 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 '99 will focus on all aspects of information visualization and human-centered information interfaces, and on ways in which advances in interactive computer graphics hardware, mass storage, and data visualization can be used to visualize information.
