  _ Call for Participation

Tutorials at 2007's IEEE Visualization and IEEE Information Visualization conferences cover a wide selection of topics of interest to participants. The tutorials offer participants an opportunity to learn emerging as well as more traditional subject areas. Tutorials may also introduce new tools and application domains. Tutorial attendees come from diverse backgrounds, including scientific and information visualization, high performance computing, volume rendering, computer graphics and human-interfaces. The tutorials are also an opportunity to share across these communities. Tutorials will begin on Sunday and continue through Tuesday.

We are soliciting half-day tutorial proposals on any topics of potential interest to the community, including the areas listed below.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Visualization Design and Aesthetic Relevance
  • Interactive Visualization Prototyping Techniques and Tools
  • Higher Dimensional Visualization
  • Mathematical and Statistical Foundations
  • Human Interfaces, Usability, and Perception in Visualization
  • Application of Visualization (in particular interdisciplinary work with domain experts)
  • Visualization in bioinformatics, medicine, science, engineering
  • Graphics Programming Tools (i.e., GPUs, Toolkits, Systems)
  • Cognition, Insight, and Sense-Making
  • Evaluation Design, Visualization Metrics (Measuring Insight, Evaluation, or Value-Added)

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 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)
  • Has the tutorial been held before? (Where and when, and why it should be held again)
  • State why you believe it is worthwhile
  • The background and contact information for each instructors

Tutorial proposals must be submitted electronically in PDF format at

Please address any questions concerning submission, format, and content at
