22-25 September 2015, Hobart, Australia
_*Call for Papers "Special Session on Immersive Analytics"*_
During IEEE BDVA 2015 a special session on Immersive Analytics will be
hold. Immersive Analytics is an emerging research thrust
which investigates how new interaction and display technologies can be
used to support analytical reasoning and decision making.
The aim is to provide multi-sensory interfaces for analytics approaches
that support collaboration and allow users to immerse
themselves in their data and designs. Immersive Analytics builds on
technologies such as large touch surfaces, immersive virtual
and augmented reality environments, and sensor devices.
For this special session, we aim to bring together researchers working
on all aspects of Immersive AnalyticsÂ to discuss research
directions and challenges, and to present the current state of the art.
Topics of interest include the whole range of topics touched by
Immersive Analytics research, including
* development and evaluation of innovative interfaces and devices,
* development and evaluation of interaction metaphors
* development and evaluation of visualizations adapted to the new
* systematic assessment of analytic workflows in application areas to
potential of immersive analytics approaches for both
* research and commercial applications challenges from application
areas, e.g. life
sciences, business intelligence, logistics, information security,
that highlight the shortcomings of classical mouse and keyboard
Both researchers working on Immersive Analytics and practitioners from
potential application areas
are welcome to submit a paper for the special session. Due to the
emerging nature of Immersive Analytics,
both papers that describe original research, including research in
progress, and position papers are welcome.
(see also the submission page on www.bdva.net)
Authors should submit manuscripts via Easychair that are neither
submitted for publication or under review
Â elsewhere. The page limit is 8 pages, depending on the nature of the
paper and the state of the
research papers can be shorter, but should have at least 4 pages in the
IEEE manuscript format .
Accepted papers will be published as part of the BDVA proceedings. High
quality papers might be selected
for a journal publication.
*Submission deadline* - June 30 *Notification* - July 10
