Welcome to VisWeek 2011!

InfoVis Papers


IEEE VisWeek 2011 is the premier forum for visualization advances for academia, government, and industry. This event brings together researchers and practitioners with a shared interest in visualization techniques, tools, and technology. The IEEE Information Visualization Conference solicits novel research ideas and innovative applications in all areas of information visualization. Please carefully read the submission guidelines below, especially pertaining to submission venue, the length of manuscripts and optional author anonymity.



Abstract submissionMonday, March 21, 2011
Paper submissionThursday, March 31, 2011
Notification of results of first review cycleMonday, June 6,2011
Paper submission for second review cycleMonday, June 27, 2011
Final notificationMonday, July 11, 2011
Camera ready copyMonday, August 1, 2011

All deadlines are at 5:00pm Pacific Time (PDT).



Papers accepted to IEEE InfoVis will appear in a special issue (Dec 2011) of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG). This special issue will be published before the conference, the publication date being December 2011. Papers (including supplemental material) will undergo a revision and review cycle after initial notification of review results in order to ensure that they are acceptable for publication and presentation in the journal. The paper and supplemental material will also appear in the IEEE Digital Library.


All three conferences appearing at IEEE VisWeek 2011 (Vis, InfoVis and VAST) use the Precision Conference System (PCS) to handle their submission and reviewing process. PCS is available at https://precisionconference.com/~vgtc/. When submitting your manuscript please make sure that you submit it to your intended conference by clicking the appropriate conference header in the conference system landing page. If you are unsure which venue you should submit to, you can use the call for papers on this website, as well as last year's published proceedings as a guideline.


When preparing your submission, please make sure that you carefully read and adhere to the submission guidelines.


The IEEE InfoVis conference is primarily soliciting papers on all topics in information visualization research. Please do note, that topics primarily involving spatial data (such as scalar, vector and tensor fields, point-based or volumetric data) might be a better match for our sister conference, the IEEE Vis Conference. Suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to:

Information visualizations, techniques and interaction methods for

  • graphs and trees and other relational data
  • high-dimensional data and dimensionality reduction
  • social and ambient information
  • text and documents
  • non-expert audiences
  • causality and uncertainty data
  • time series data
  • any other non-spatial data or spatial data that is visualized with a new spatial mapping

Information visualization interaction techniques

  • icon- and glyph-based
  • focus + context
  • animation
  • zooming and navigation
  • linking + brushing
  • coordinated multiple views
  • data labeling, editing and annotation
  • scalability
  • collaborative, co-located and distributed
  • manipulation and deformation
  • visual data mining and visual knowledge discovery

Information visualization and comprehension issues

  • visual design and aesthetics
  • cognition and perception
  • sonification
  • presentation and dissemination
  • mobile and ubiquitous

Information visualization methodologies

  • visualization systems
  • design studies and case studies
  • novel algorithms and mathematics
  • taxonomies and models
  • methodologies, discussions and frameworks


  • task and requirements analysis
  • metrics and benchmarks
  • qualitative and quantitative evaluation
  • laboratory and field studies
  • novel evaluation methods
  • usability studies and focus groups

Information visualization application areas

  • statistical graphics
  • information visualization for mathematics
  • geo-visualizations
  • biomedical visualizations
  • financial visualization
