Call for Papers

Asia Pacific Symposium on Visualisation

5-7 February, 2007

Sydney, Australia



APVIS2007 is the sixth annual international symposium to be held in the Asia-Pacific region with the objective to foster greater exchange between visualisation researchers and practitioners. Authors are invited to submit papers describing original and unpublished research and practical applications in all areas of visualisation. The scope of previous APVIS meetings was limited to graph drawing and information visualisation. From this year, APVIS has been expanded to include scientific visualisation. We anticipate an exciting technical program.

* Scope

Suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to:

- Theoretic foundations of visualisation

- Usability and human-factors

- Visual models and representations

- Visual knowledge discovery

- Visual data mining

- Visual analytics

- Interaction techniques 

- Scientific visualisation

- Information visualisation

- Graph drawing algorithms

- Visualisation of large data sets

- Visualisation of time-varying data

- Visualisation in bioinformatics

- Visualisation in social network analysis

- Software visualisation

- Case studies

- Real-world systems

* Invited Speaker

The keynote address will be given by Jim Thomas, Director of the National Visualization and Analytics Center and Fellow of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA.

* Important Dates

Submission of draft papers          11 September, 2006

Notification of acceptance          3 November, 2006

Submitted papers should be at most 8 pages in length and conform to the formatting conventions of VGTC/IEEE (see http://www.cs.sfu.ca/~vis/Tasks/camera.html for details and templates). All papers are to be submitted electronically in PDF format to http://www.cs.usyd.edu.au/~visual/ConfMan/REG-paper/

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and the accepted submissions will be included in the official proceedings of the symposium, which will be printed by VGTC/IEEE. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to attend APVIS2007 and present the paper. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. After the symposium, authors of selected papers will be invited to prepare an expanded version of their papers to be included in a special issue of Information Visualization or a scientific visualisation journal as appropriate.
