               InfoVis 2005
        Eleventh Annual IEEE Symposium on
           Information Visualization

              Minneapolis, MN
             October 23-25, 2005

InfoVis is the primary meeting in the field of information
visualization and is held in conjunction with the IEEE Visualization
2005 (Vis05) conference.  Computer-based information visualization
centers around helping people explore or explain data through
interactive software that exploits the capabilities of the human
perceptual system.  The central design challenge in infovis is
designing a cognitively useful spatial mapping of a dataset that is
not inherently spatial.

This year InfoVis has expanded to three full days.  The InfoVis
Symposium is a single track conference with both an engaging technical
program and ample opportunities for interactions with colleagues and
friends.  The technical program includes research paper presentations,
posters, results of the annual InfoVis contest, and videos, which are
new this year.  This year, the symposium includes a panel on turning
information visualization innovations into commercial products and a
special panel remembering Steve Roth and his contributions to the
field.  Keynote and Capstone speakers are
- Jim Thomas, Pacific Northwest National Labs
  "Visual Analytics: a Grand Challenge in Science - 
   Turning Information Overload into the Opportunity of the Decade"
- Nigel Holmes, Explanation Graphics
  "When to draw the line (and when not to)"

We hope that you can join us in Minneapolis!
