Call for Posters

The 4th IEEE Pacific Visualization Symposium (PacificVis 2011) will be held in Hong Kong during March 1 to 4, 2011. Visualization has become an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. PacificVis is an IEEE sponsored international visualization symposium held in the Asia-Pacific region, with the objective to foster greater exchange between visualization researchers and practitioners, and to draw more researchers in the Asia-Pacific region to enter this rapidly growing area of research.

PacificVis 2011 is soliciting high quality poster proposals. The PacificVis 2011 poster program offers an opportunity to present innovative techniques in commercial products, work in progress, student projects, or non-traditional research. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Visualization Taxonomies and Models
  • Spatial Data in Visualization
  • Information Visualization
  • Display and Interaction Technology
  • Evaluation
  • Perception & Cognition
  • Hardware for Visualization
  • Large Data Visualization
  • Visual Analysis and Knowledge Discovery
  • Flow Visualization
  • Applications
  • Graph Drawing
  • Visual analytics
  • Collaboration / Social Visualization
  • Visualization of Biological / Business / Communication / Social Networks
  • Security Visualization

We especially welcome presentations of novel interface and interaction techniques for visualization. The objective is to foster exchange between researchers/practitioners in the fields of HCI and visualization.

An interactive poster session will be held which should allow plenty of opportunities for one-on-one dialogue and small group discussion in a casual setting. Extended abstracts of the accepted posters will be distributed at the conference, but these abstracts will NOT be included in the symposium proceedings and are NOT considered publications. The same work can therefore be submitted to a journal or conference later.

Poster proposals should present at least partial results achieved with a new technique. Submissions describing unsubstantiated ideas for future research will not be accepted. Based on the results of paper review process, the PacificVis 2011 program committee will also decide to offer several authors to present their work as invited posters and we expect to build a high quality poster program based on these core contributions. Poster proposals will be evaluated by PacificVis 2011 program committee based on level of contribution, validity of the results, originality, and clarity of presentation.

Please do NOT use paper submission system for anything related to posters. Even if the PacificVis 2011 program committee offered you to present an invited poster based on your earlier paper submission, please send the new 2 page version to the address above by the deadline specified below. This will serve as an indication that you accept our invitation and are willing to present your poster at the conference.

IMPORTANT: Poster Proposal Format & Submission Procedure: Poster proposals of up to 2 pages (two-column, single-spaced, 10 point font, including figures, tables and references) are invited. Manuscripts must be written in English, and follow the formatting guidelinesDOC and LaTeX templates are available.
