The IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization is the premier meeting in the emerging field of information visualization.
Information visualization involves the visual presentation of information spaces and structures to facilitate their rapid assimilation and understanding. Typically, carefully designed visual representations are used to portray an abstract information space, and mechanisms are provided for the exploration of and interaction with the information space through the corresponding visual representation.
The seventh IEEE Information Visualization Symposium (InfoVis 2001) will be held in conjunction with IEEE Visualization 2001. Original papers are solicited in all areas of information visualization, including but not limited to the following:
In response to feedback from past participants, InfoVis 2001 will incorporate two new presentation categories, short papers and interactive posters.
Full papers should be at most 8 printed pages. Full papers present previously unpublished, original results. Accepted papers will be included in the symposium proceedings. Papers submitted as full papers may, at the discretion of the program co-chairs, be invited for publication and presentation as short papers.
Short papers should be at most 4 printed pages. Short papers are intended for two submission types: a) short case studies of how information visualization has contributed to working applications in real-life environments, and b) short technical notes which, though novel and of interest to the community, do not warrant a full paper submission. Clearly identify the type of your submission by including the prefix "Case Study:" or "Technical Note:" to the title of your short paper. Accepted short papers will be included in the symposium proceedings.
We have extended the submission deadline for the new interactive posters category. This category includes both traditional posters and demos, either live on a laptop or through video. In this new category, we encourage both submissions of original unpublished work and submissions showcasing systems of interest to the information visualization community that have been presented in other venues. We highly encourage demonstrations of interactive systems.
All authors of accepted interactive posters are required to bring a poster to and attend the scheduled poster session. Accepted authors who wish to also show demos of their work are encouraged to also bring a laptop to that session. There will be a limited number of stations for showing videos during that session, depending on demand. Authors who wish to show a live demo but cannot provide their own machine should contact the posters chair in advance of the submission deadline to discuss the logistics. All authors who plan to show live demos or video should clearly indicate this fact in their submissions.
All interactive poster authors must submit a 2 page extended abstract, and those who intend to show demos are highly encouraged to also submit an accompanying video. Clearly identify the type of your submission by including the prefix "Interactive Poster:" in the title of your extended abstract. Extended abstracts of accepted interactive posters will be printed in the LBHT proceedings, and accompanying videos will be included in the electronic and/or video proceedings.
Late Breaking Hot Topics (LBHT) have a much later submission deadline and are an opportunity to present exciting new findings, preliminary results, and work in progress. LBHT submissions should be at most 4 printed pages and present original unpublished work. Accepted LBHT papers will be published and distributed at the symposium.
All submissions to InfoVis 2001 are to be made electronically in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format). If you do not have software to make PDF files, you can obtain shareware software from:
All submissions, regardless of category, should include title, author(s), abstract, keywords, body, and references. Authors are encouraged to include full color illustrations.
Enter the submission category: full paper, short paper (case study), or short paper (technical note) when asked for the subject area.
The subject area is not used for poster submissions.
The subject area is not used for LBHT submissions.
