IEEE PacificVis 2012: Call for Posters

The 5th IEEE Pacific Visualization Symposium (PacificVis 2012) will be held in Songdo, Korea from February 28 to March 2, 2012. 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 2012 is soliciting high quality poster proposals. The PacificVis 2012 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
  • Visualization and Interaction Technology
  • Hardware for Visualization
  • Evaluation and User Studies
  • Visual Analytics, Visual Data Mining, and Knowledge Discovery
  • Spatial Data Visualization
  • Time-varying Data Visualization
  • Large Data Visualization
  • Collaborative / Social Visualization
  • Security Visualization
  • Network Visualization
  • Graph Drawing
  • Visualization Applications

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

An interactive poster session will be held to 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 will NOT be considered publications. The same work can therefore be submitted to a journal or conference later.

Posters 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 2012 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. Posters will be evaluated by the PacificVis 2012 Poster Co-Chairs based on level of contribution, validity of the results, originality, and clarity of presentation.

Submission Instructions

Posters of up to 2 pages (two-column, single-spaced, 10 point font, including figures, tables and references) are invited.

Please do NOT use paper submission system for anything related to posters. Even if the PacificVis 2012 program committee offered you to present an invited poster based on your earlier paper submission, please send the new 2 page version to the Poster Co-Chairs (pacificvis_poster [AT] by the deadline specified below.
