CALL FOR PAPER

SCOPE
The aim of Information Visualisation is to facilitate the visual exploration and reporting of abstract information, such as train timetables, family trees, UML diagrams and crime statistics. Key challenges include the need for effective representation of, and intuitive interaction with, the required information. The increasing affordability of computer graphics devices over the past 15 years has promised that Information Visualisation can deliver both at a reasonable cost. The Australian Information Visualisation Symposium aims to investigate the progress that has been made by researchers, in Australia and abroad, toward the fulfillment of this promise.
Topics include but are not limited to:
* novel visual representations
* interaction techniques
* visual models and languages
* graph drawing
* software architectures
* algorithms
* novel display or interaction devices
* animation
* user interfaces
for information visualisation
