Tutorials at IEEE Visualization are held on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, the 3 days prior to the start of the main conference. They are intended to cover a wide selection of topics related to the conference and provide background on new tools and application domains necessary for research in visualization. Tutorial attendees come from diverse backgrounds, including volume visualization and rendering, information visualization, high performance computing, and scientific application communities.

We are soliciting half-day and full-day course proposals in the areas of visualization systems, mathematical foundations, methods, and application areas. We welcome course proposals that introduce emerging technologies to the visualization community, as well as proposals on more traditional visualization topics. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Visual Data Mining
  • High Dimensional Visualization
  • Usability
  • Graphics Programming Tools (GPUs, toolkits, systems, more...)
  • Information Visualization
  • Relevant application areas (Climate, Chemistry, Hydrology, CFD, Medicine, Genomics/Proteomics, Biology, Molecular Biology, others...)
  • Mathematics and Statistics, PDEs
  • Perception in Visualization

Tutorial Detail

Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the tutorial's importance and suitability for presentation in a tutorial format, the past experience and qualifications of the instructors, the overall balance in the tutorial program, and the likely attendance of the tutorial.

All tutorial proposals should include:

  • The duration (1/2 day or 1 day)
  • The level of the tutorial (beginning, intermediate, or advanced)
  • An abstract of the tutorial topic
  • A description of the tutorial's organization including time allocation and outline for major course topics (500 word minimum)
  • The background and contact information for each instructors

Tutorial proposals must be submitted electronically in either PDF or HTML format.

Proposals should be sent via email to Please address any questions concerning submission, format, and content to
