Tutorials at IEEE Visualization will be held all week (new), beginning on Sunday and continuing through Thursday. 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:

  • Human Interfaces, Usability, and Perception in Visualization
  • Visualization Outreach (i.e., Working with Domain Experts, Cultivating Adoption, Engaging New Researchers, and Creating Diverse Teams)
  • Cognition, Insight, and Sense-Making
  • Visualization Metrics (Measuring Insight, Evaluation, or Value-Added)
  • Visualization Design and Aesthetic Relevance
  • Higher Dimensional Visualization
  • Mathematics and Statistics
  • Graphics Programming Tools (i.e., GPUs, Toolkits, Systems)
  • Relevant Application Areas (i.e., Medical, Scientific, and Information 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 PDF format to vis2005tutorials@pnl.gov. Please address any questions concerning submission, format, and content to vis2005tutorials@pnl.gov.

Deadline for proposals is April 20, 2005
