Welcome to VisWeek 2011!

Visualization Welcome

The IEEE Visualization 2011 Conference solicits contributions from all areas of visualization with a high level of originality, rigor and impact. We are equally interested in deep theoretical contributions as well as a wide array of visualization applications, whether they are in traditional areas (such as clinical medicine or fluid dynamics) or new and emerging areas (such as microscopy and security). The contributions can take shape as a novel algorithmic technique, a visualization system, a design study that details the success of visualization in a particular application, or it can focus on visualization evaluation. We also welcome papers on the foundational theory of visualization. 

In addition to paper presentations, there exist other exciting and informative forums. The panels are among the most exciting events, usually attracting a very large number of attendees. They provide an open forum for discussing important and/or controversial topics in the field today. Tutorials at Visualization conferences provide a wide-range of detailed and relevant insights into the state-of-the-art in visualization technologies and principles. Tutorials allow established visualization researchers to give back to the larger community their well-earned accrued knowledge. Workshops enable focused discussions to take place in an informal setting, allowing participants to promote new ideas, discuss interdisciplinary topics, involve domain experts, and disseminate work-in-progress. Some of the emergent and new exciting areas of visualization research often found their beginnings as a workshop. Posters allow the presentation of nascent research and facilitate the exchange of ideas and discourse and are accorded a significant role in the Visualization conferences. The Interactive Demonstrations Lab allows for the showcasing of innovative hardware and/or software offerings. Finally, the Doctoral Colloquium will provide the new generation of Visualization researchers an opportunity to present their ideas and receive viable and useful input.
