 Thank you!

******** CALL FOR CHAPTERS  *************

*Chapter proposal due:        Feb 24, 2012*

Notification due:    March 09, 2012

*Human centric visualization: Theories, methodologies and case studies *

A book edited by Tony Huang (CSIRO ICT Centre, Australia), to be published
by Springer: www.springer.com


*1. Introduction *

Visualizations (diagrams) are produced for people to make sense or interact
with them. Rapid advances in display technology and computer power have
enabled researchers to produce visually appealing pictures or compelling
visual environments to end users. However, the effectiveness of those
pictures in conveying embedded information to the users and impact of
visual environments on humans have not been fully understood.

This book addresses issues related to design, evaluation and application of
visualizations from a human centric perspective. This cutting-edge book is
an edited volume whose contributors include experts worldwide, from diverse
disciplines including psychologist, artists, engineers and scientists.

Academics, students, engineers and consultants will find this book useful
for both research and engineering purposes.
