Given the recent interest of folks in this list in visual representations of social networks, this conference might be relevant to some of you: InfoVis 2005. It's the world's premier academic conference on information visualization.

Last year, the "contest" track in the conference revolved around a dataset of citations for all papers in the 10 previous years of conference proceedings (pure social-network material). The visualizations that came out of that were pretty impressive: http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/iv04contest/INFOVIS04-contestsession.pdf

I'm the publicity chair for InfoVis this year and I'd be happy to answer questions about the conference.

best,

IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization 2005

Call for Participation
http://infovis.org/infovis/2005/

We solicit papers, posters, and contest entries for InfoVis 2005, the eleventh annual IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization. InfoVis is the primary meeting in the field of information visualization, and is held in conjunction with the IEEE Visualization 2005 (Vis05) conference in Minneapolis, MN.

Computer-based information visualization, or "infovis", centers around helping people explore or explain data through systems that include static or interactive visual representations. The central design challenge in infovis is designing a cognitively useful spatial mapping of a dataset that is not inherently spatial. There are many possible visual encodings, only a fraction of which are helpful for a given task. We draw on the intellectual history of several traditions, including computer graphics, human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, semiotics, graphic design, statistical graphics, cartography, and art. The synthesis of relevant ideas from these fields is critical for keeping pace with the torrents of data that confront us all.

PAPERS
Abstracts due: Friday, April 10, 2005 5:00pm PST
Full Papers Due: Friday, April 20, 2005 5:00pm PST

Papers can be up to a maximum of eight (8) pages in length, including full-color figures throughout. We encourage the use of digital video to support the submission, particularly if part or all of the work covers
interactive techniques. At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the conference to present the work, and authors will also be required to present a very brief one-minute summary of their talk at the opening papers preview session on Sunday October 10.

For details on format and electronic submission of papers and optional accompanying digital video, see the InfoVis 04 Submission Instructions: http://www.infovis.org/infovis/2005/submit.shtml#papers

For more information on paper categories (technique, system, design study, valuation, and model) and the review process, see the InfoVis 04 Author guide: http://www.infovis.org/infovis/2005/guide.shtml#papers


INTERACTIVE POSTERS
Due: Thursday, June 30, 2005

Interactive Posters are submitted as a two (2) page summary of the work, optional draft of the poster layout and optional accompanying video. In addition to the traditional physical poster at the session, authors are encouraged to present demonstrations of interactive systems, either live on a laptop or through video. We encourage both submissions of original unpublished work, and submissions showcasing systems of interest to the information visualization community that have been presented in other venues. Accepted poster summaries will be included electronically on the IEEE Visualization 2005 Conference DVD, placed on the official infovis.org web site, and also distributed in a hardcopy compendium to all symposium and conference attendees.

At least one author of an accepted poster must attend the conference to present the work at the evening poster session, and authors will also be required to present a very brief one-minute summary of their work at a posters preview session earlier in that day.

For details on format and electronic submission of posters and optional accompanying digital video, see the Submission Instructions: http://www.infovis.org/infovis/2005/submit.shtml#posters  For more
information on posters and the review process, see the Author Guide: http://www.infovis.org/infovis/2005/guide.shtml#posters


CONTEST
Due: Friday, July 15, 2005

Contest Dataset and Tasks: http://ivpr.cs.uml.edu/infovis05/

The contest participation category was introduced in 2003. The goal of the contest is to promote the development of benchmarks for information visualization, establish a forum to promote evaluation methods, and create an interesting event at the conference.

Contest entries are submitted as a two (2) page summary, a video and accompanying materials. All accepted entry materials will be made available online after the conference. At least one author of an accepted entry must attend the conference to present the work. Authors of first place entries will receive a prize and present their work during the main contest session. Authors of second place entries will present their work during the poster session, and also through a brief summary of their work as a preview in the main contest session. Duplicate submissions should *not* be made to both the
poster and contest categories.

For details on format and electronic submission of contest entries, see the official contest site: http://ivpr.cs.uml.edu/infovis05/


VIDEOS
Due: Thursday, June 30, 2005

The Video track is a new addition to InfoVis. Videos are an effective way to educate others about new information visualization techniques and concepts. We want to encourage the production of high quality videos, and aim at producing a valuable resource that will stimulate research and that can be used for educational purposes.

Videos are submitted as a digital video movie, with maximum size of 100 MB, accompanied by a two (2) page summary of the work. The length of the video should preferably not exceed 5 minutes, but in very special cases exceptions can be made. The size limit is strict however.

We encourage original submissions of unpublished work, as well as new submissions showcasing systems, methods and techniques of interest to the information visualization community that have been presented in other venues.

Accepted videos will be included electronically on the IEEE Visualization 2005 Conference DVD, shown during the InfoVis symposium, placed on the official infovis.org web site, and the summary will be distributed in a hardcopy compendium to all symposium and conference attendees.

At least one author of an accepted video must attend the conference to clarify the work and answer questions from the attendees at the evening poster session on Monday October 24.
