We solicit papers, posters, videos, artistic works, and contest entries for InfoVis 2006, the twelfth annual IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization. InfoVis is the primary meeting in the field of information visualization, and is held on October 29 through 31, in conjunction with the IEEE Visualization 2006 (Vis06) conference in Baltimore, Maryland, the week of October 29 through November 3, 2006.

Computer-based information visualization, or "infovis", centers around helping people explore or explain data through systems that include static or interactive visual representations. The central design challenge in infovis is designing a cognitively useful spatial mapping of a dataset that is not inherently spatial. There are many possible visual encodings, only a fraction of which are helpful for a given task. We draw on the intellectual history of several traditions, including computer graphics, human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, semiotics, graphic design, statistical graphics, cartography, and art. The synthesis of relevant ideas from these fields is critical for keeping pace with the torrents of data that confront us all.

We encourage submissions of papers (abstracts due on March 21, 2006 and papers due on March 31, 2006), interactive posters and videos (June 30, 2006 deadline), and InfoVis contest entries (August 11, 2006 deadline). We also are pleased to announce a new art exhibit component for the symposium (June 30, 2006 deadline).

Video poster format and submission instructions are now available. Please click here for details.
