Sessions » InfoVis Overview & Topics
IEEE InfoVis 2008 is the premier forum for visualization advances in science and engineering for academia, government, and industry. This event brings together researchers and practitioners with a shared interest in techniques, tools, and technology. We invite you to participate by submitting your original research and joining us in beautiful Columbus, Ohio, October 19 - 24, 2008.
We extend a special invitation to exhibitors in the field. VisWeek brings together researchers and practitioners with a shared interest in techniques, tools, and technology. Computer-based information visualization centers around helping people explore or explain data through interactive software that exploits the capabilities of the human perceptual system. A key challenge in information visualization is designing a cognitively useful spatial mapping of a dataset that is not inherently spatial and accompanying the mapping by interaction techniques that allow people to intuitively explore the dataset. Information visualization draws 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 with new methodologies and techniques made possible by interactive computation are critical for helping people keep pace with the torrents of data confronting them.
Co-located with IEEE InfoVis are the highly
successful conference and symposium
- VIS 2008: IEEE Visualization Conference.
- IEEE VAST 2008: IEEE Symposium on Visual Analytics Science and Technology.
The combined conference and symposium with IEEE InfoVis 2008 make this week in Columbus the place to be to participate in this rapidly expanding field.
To be announced.
