Information Visualization Contest

The contest participation category was introduced in 2003. The goal of the contest is to promote the development of benchmarks for information visualization, establish a forum to promote evaluation methods, and create an interesting event at the conference. Following the 2006 contest involving U.S. Census Data, we have chosen a widely analyzed and familiar data set with which to challenge the InfoVis community.

The data set consists of about Hollywood movies including actors, actresses, awards, and similar. This years focus is on the design aspects of the visualization in addition to its exploratory and analytical aspects, and entrants are encourages to augment the data set with any publicly available data.

Contest entries are submitted as a two (2) page summary, a video and accompanying materials. All accepted entry materials will be made available online after the conference. At least one author of an accepted entry must attend the conference to present the work. Authors of first place entries will receive a prize and present their work during the main contest session. All entries will present their work during the poster session, and also through a brief summary of their work.

Submission Deadline: Friday, July 13, 2007, 5:00pm PDT

For more contest information, go to the official contest website to download the data set and contest tasks.

For details on formatting of the 2-page contest entry summary paper, see the conference submission formatting guidelines.
