Conference name: International Conference on Information Visualization Theory and Applications (IVAPP)
Event Date: 5-7 March, 2011
The International Conference on Information Visualization Theory and Applications aims at becoming a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners in Information Visualization. The conference will be structured along several topics related to Information Visualization. We welcome papers describing original work in any of the topics listed below. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques as well as general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Paper acceptance will be based on quality, relevance to the conference theme and originality. The conference program will include both oral and poster presentations. Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged. Companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Conference Topics
Papers should address one or more of the listed topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related topics are also allowed.
› Visual Data Analysis and Knowledge Discovery › Visual Representation and Interaction › Data Acquisition and Information Processing › Data Management and Knowledge Representation › Interactive Visual Interfaces › Security & Privacy › Interoperability and Ontological Issues › Context-Sensitive Information Seeking and Retrieval › Interpretation and Evaluation › Perception and Cognition › Analytical Reasoning › Algorithms and Technologies › Mathematical Foundations of Interactive Visual Analysis › Display and Interaction Technology › Hardware for Visualization › Presentation Methods › Evaluation Methods Keynote Speakers
IVAPP 2011 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed. Paper Submission
Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. The initial submission must have between 3 to 13 pages otherwise it will be rejected without review. Please check the paper formats page so you may be aware of the accepted paper page limits. The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web ought to be used for all submitted papers. The preferred submission format is the same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow the instructions and templates provided. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable.
Papers that are out of the conference scope or contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews. Please read INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism.
Remarks about the on-line submission procedure: 1. A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. This means that is necessary to remove the authors personal details, the acknowledgements section and any reference that may disclose the authors identity. LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC/DOCX/RTF format are accepted. 2. The web submission procedure automatically sends an acknowledgement, by e-mail, to the contact author.
Paper submission types: Regular Paper Submission A regular paper presents a work where the research is completed or almost finished. It does not necessary means that the acceptance is as a full paper. It may be accepted as a "full paper" (30 min. oral presentation) , a "short paper" (20 min. oral presentation) or a "poster".
Position Paper Submission A position paper presents an arguable opinion about an issue. The goal of a position paper is to convince the audience that your opinion is valid and worth listening to, without the need to present completed research work and/or validated results. It is, nevertheless, important to support your argument with evidence to ensure the validity of your claims. A position paper may be a short report and discussion of ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research (bibliographic, experimental, theoretical, or other) focused on one of the conference topic areas. The acceptance of a position paper is restricted to the categories of "short paper" or "poster", i.e. a position paper is not a candidate to acceptance as "full paper".
Camera-ready: After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author (the author who submits the paper) of each paper will be notified of the result, by e-mail. The authors are required to follow the reviews in order to improve their paper before the camera-ready submission. Publications
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book. The proceedings will be indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC and DBLP. Proceedings of IVAPP 2010 are under evaluation by EI, and the proceedings of IVAPP 2011 will be evaluated after their publication. Important Dates
