Call For Papers: International Workshop on 3DVis:

Does 3D really make sense for Data Visualization?

This half-a-day workshop is a satellite event of the IEEE VIS 2014
November 2015, Paris, France

The aim of this workshop is to discuss 3D display and 3D user interfaces
for scientific and information visualization and Visual Analytics. We aim
to analyze the state of the art in 3D visualization and associated
interaction; and to review how 3D displays and user interfaces match human
perceptual, cognitive and motor capabilities.

On one hand, 3D technologies and the recent introduction of low-cost
virtual and augmented reality hardware provide additional options for
display and interaction, which broadens the space of potential solutions
considerably, and pave the way towards a deeper exploration of the design
space for 3D visualization. Better consistency in terms of dimensions
between the visualization and interaction may also improve the immersion
and navigation in huge amounts of data.

On the other hand, the experimental results from studies that investigate
the differences between 2D and 3D visualization interfaces provide no real
evidence for the claimed benefits of 3D technologies.Thus, the current body
of literature provides at best inconclusive guidance on the benefits of 3D
approaches. Moreover, a deep consideration of human abilities and
capabilities identifies a potential mismatch with full 3D user interfaces.
Yet, there may be a bias in the evaluations, as the prevalent visualization
and interaction techniques in all areas of visualization are based on
non-immersive technologies.

Indeed, this is the heart of the 2D vs. 3D debate. In this workshop, we
would like to present evidence for both sides of this debate, and also
provide directions for future work.

We solicit research papers, technical notes, state of the art, position
papers and demonstrations within the scope of 3D Visualization:
• Immersive visualization, navigation and interaction
• 3D for Scientific visualization, Information visualization, Visual
• VR, AR and MR for 3D visualization
• Key factors and issues in 3D Data Visualization
• User evaluation of 2D vs 3D

The workshop proceedings will consist of all accepted papers and will be
indexed through the IEEE Digital Library.

 Submission types:
• Research Papers (up to 8 pages) should describe original research results
or original 3D Vis systems or frameworks
• Technical notes (up to 4 pages) should contain unpublished preliminary
results of research, application, design or system work
• State of the art reports (up to 8 pages) should provide surveys on one of
the topics of this workshop
• Position Papers (up to 6 pages) should present interesting and possibly
controversial points of view on one of the topics of this workshop
• Demonstrations (up to 2 pages associated to a video) should illustrate
some limitations of the 2D or the 3D approach

Deadline for all categories of submissions: September 21st, 2014
Blind submissions should be made through the Easychair system:
