                   Call for Participation

       IEEE Visual Analytics Science and Technology 2006
                  October 31 - Nov 2, 2006

Approaching Deadline: Paper Submission Deadline- March 31, 2006

IEEE VAST 2006 is the first international symposium dedicated to the
advances in visual analytics science and technology. The scope of the
symposium, co-located with the annual IEEE Visualization 2006
Conference and the IEEE InfoVis Symposium, is based on the research
agenda which has been recently published in the book Illuminating the
Path: The Research and Development Agenda for Visual Analytics,
J. J. Thomas and K. A. Cook, editors, IEEE CS Press. We invite you to
participate by submitting your original research and joining us in
Baltimore, Maryland, October 31 - November 2, 2006.

Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by
the highly interactive visual interface. People use visual analytics
tools and techniques to synthesize information; derive insight from
massive, dynamic, and often conflicting data; detect the expected and
discover the unexpected; provide timely, defensible, and
understandable assessments; and communicate assessments effectively
for action. The issues stimulating this body of research provide a
grand challenge in science: turning information overload into the
opportunity of the decade.

Visual analytics requires interdisciplinary science beyond traditional
scientific and information visualization to include statistics,
mathematics, knowledge representation, management and discovery
technologies, cognitive and perceptual sciences, decision sciences,
and more. Submission should help develop and/or apply the science of
Visual Analytics, clearly showing an interdisciplinary approach.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  - Visual representations and interaction techniques including the
    principles for depicting information, new visual paradigms,
    statistical graphics, geospatial visualizations, the science of
    interaction, and approaches for generating visual analytic
    visualization and interactions,
  - Data management and knowledge representation including scalable data
    representations for high volume and stream data, statistical and
    semantic signatures, and synthesis of information from diverse data
  - Analytical reasoning including the human analytic discourse, knowledge
    discovery methods, perception and cognition, and collaborative visual
  - Presentation, production, and dissimilation methods including methods
    and tools for capturing the analytics process, and story telling for
    specific and varying audiences, and
  - Evaluation methods, security & privacy, interoperability, and
    technology practice & experience, as far as they contribute to the
    science of visual analytics.

Technical Committee.
