The posters program offers a timely venue for significant new visualization work. Posters have been an integral part of many areas of scientific research, but have only recently been revived at Visualization. Examples of appropriate visualization work include, but are not limited to, work in progress, research exploring new problems or areas, student projects, and any work that might particularly benefit from discussion with others in the field. Case studies in all areas of science, engineering, and medicine are welcome.

Review criteria are interest to the community, originality, significance, and presentation quality. Submissions will be limited to two printed pages and an optional draft of the poster. Submissions should include a concise description of the idea, the results or findings, supporting imagery and figures, and a discussion of the implications of the work to visualization. Full literature searches are not expected, although relevant citations should be included. Submissions must be in final form; those accepted will be distributed to attendees on paper and on the conference dvd-rom as submitted -- no revisions will be possible. Any optional drafts of posters are submitted for review purposes only and will not be distributed. To facilitate dissemination, discussion, and access, posters will be on display during the entire conference. Authors will be expected to set up their posters the first morning, take them down the final afternoon, be available at their poster during assigned poster sessions during the conference, and give a one-minute presentation at a poster summary session.

Abstracts will be accepted electronically in PDF. The draft of the poster may be in either Powerpoint or PDF. Submissions should be sent via email to The final poster size should not exceed 60 inches x 40 inches (approximately 150 cm x 100 cm).
