|CALL FOR PARTICIPATION|
Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) gatherings are a great opportunity for data and information visualization researchers with similar interests or needs to network and exchange information. BOF proposals should identify the topic to be addressed and identify prospective attendees. They should deal with state-of-the-art topics and involve experts in the field. Discipline-focused proposals devoted to a particular discipline's methods and needs are encouraged. In particular, proposals may be submitted for BOF gatherings on (i) visualization tools and systems, (ii) novel driving applications, and (iii) new progresses in technologies that may directly benefit visualization research and tool-building. Such technologies include, but are not limited to, novel graphics and computing systems, parallel I/O, high performance networking and storage, novel mathematical methods/libraries and work flow modeling packages, etc.
The IEEE Visualization Conference and the IEEE Information Visualization Conference are eager to expand their BOF sessions and will consider proposals for each day and evening of the conference, given room availability. BOF organizers need to be registered at one conference for at least the day of the BOF.
BOF proposals should consist of a brief one-page description of the topic, expected audience, speakers and preferred day of the proposed gathering. Please include contact information for the organizers as well. Birds-of-a-Feather Proposals must be sent electronically in PDF format to email@example.com.
Please address any questions concerning submission, format, and content to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: September 15, 2007
