Video Submissions

The Video track is a recent addition to InfoVis. Videos are an effective way to educate others about new information visualization techniques and concepts. We want to encourage the production of high quality videos, and aim at producing a valuable resource that will stimulate research and that can be used for educational purposes.

Videos are submitted as a digital video movie, with maximum size of 100 MB, accompanied by a two (2) page summary of the work. The length of the video should preferably not exceed 5 minutes, but in very special cases exceptions can be made. The size limit is strict however.

We encourage original submissions of unpublished work, as well as new submissions showcasing systems, methods and techniques of interest to the information visualization community that have been presented in other venues.

Accepted videos will be included electronically on the IEEE Visualization 2005 Conference DVD, shown during the InfoVis symposium, placed on the official infovis.org web site, and the summary will be distributed in a hardcopy compendium to all symposium and conference attendees.

At least one author of an accepted video must attend the conference to clarify the work and answer questions from the attendees at the evening poster session on Monday, October 30.

Formats

Videos are submitted as a digital video movie, with maximum size of 100 MB, accompanied by a two (2) page summary of the work. The length of the video should preferably not exceed 5 minutes, but in very special cases exceptions can be made. The size limit is strict however.

A submitted video file must be in one of the following formats:

  • Quicktime: with Sorenson or MPEG4 compression
  • AVI: with Indeo 5.10, MPEG4, or DivX 5.x.x compression

The audio in the video can also be compressed or just left as a low bit-rate mono channel to save space (e.g., 22KHz, 16bit Mono, with IMA 4:1 compression). Videos should be at least 15fps and at least 320x240 resolution, with mono audio if needed.

The two page summary of the work should follow the Formatting Requirements of submitted papers.

To submit a contribution to the video track, please follow these steps:

  1. Prepare the video file and the 2-page summary. The filenames should contain the name of the contact-author, for instance smith.avi and smith.pdf.
  2. Put files on a publicly addressable HTTP or FTP space, and verify that it can be downloaded publicly.
  3. Send email to Ed Chi (echi at parc.com) with subject "Video contribution", in order to notify that the URL of the submitted contribution.

The co-chairs will download the submissions and verify the formal requirements, and notify you on this.
