Software visualization encompasses the development and evaluation of
methods for graphically representing different aspects of software,
including its structure, its abstract and concrete execution, and its
evolution. The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for
researchers from different backgrounds (HCI, software engineering,
programming languages, visualization, computer science education) to
discuss and present original research on software visualization.

Over the years SOFTIVS has become the premier venue for presenting all
types of research on software visualization. After SOFTVIS03 in San
Diego, and SOFTVIS05 in St. Louis, the third iteration of this
conference series will be co-located with the IEEE Symposium on Visual
Languages and Human-Centric Computing and with the Psychology of
Programmers Interest Group (PPIG) Workshop in Brighton, UK.



We seek theoretical as well as practical papers on applications,
techniques, tools and case studies. Topics of interest include, but
are not restricted to, the following:

- Visualization of algorithms and programs
- Visualization "beyond programs", eg: software design, database 
  schemas, software process, security, debugging.
- Software visualization in education
- Integration of software visualization tools with development
- Graph drawing algorithms for software visualization
- Empirical evaluation of software visualization system effectiveness

Papers should represent original, unpublished results and will be
rigorously reviewed by the international Program Committee. Papers
must be in standard ACM 2-column format and cannot exceed 10 pages in
total length. Authors should prepare and electronically submit a PDF
version of their paper. Videos not exceeding 5 minutes in length can
accompany a paper submission. Papers are due April 7, 2006. Some hints
for prospective authors are available online. For more details on the
submission process see the SOFTVIS06 web site at www.softvis.org
