| InfoVis 2004
The tenth annual IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization (InfoVis), will be held on October 10-12, 2004, in conjunction with IEEE Visualization 2004 conference.
Computer-based information visualization, or "infovis",
centers around helping people explore or explain data through systems
that include static or interactive visual representation. 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.
