The First Information Visualization Symposium (InfoVis '95)

October 30-31, 1995
Atlanta Airport Hilton and Towers, Atlanta, GA

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Graphics
In Cooperation with ACM/SIGGRAPH
Held in conjunction with IEEE Visualization '95 Conference

There is more to life than data-- information!! InfoVis is dedicated to the visualization of information (on and off the Internet and the Web). Feast your eyes on the latest information visualizations and explore new methods to create them. Meet their developers and discuss with them their ideas (and yours). Learn why the future is here.

Scope. All aspects of visualizing information (on and off the Internet and the Web) and how users interact with digital information. IEEE InfoVis will foster an exchange of ideas on information visualization and human-information interaction (HII), and how advances in interactive computer graphics hardware, mass storage, and data visualization could be used to visualize information.
