Information Technology Special Issue on Visual Analytics

First call for papers
Full papers due by July 18, 2014

We invite submissions to a forthcoming special issue on Visual Analytics 
of the Information Technology journal published by de Gruyter Oldenbourg 
Scientific Publishing.

Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by 
highly interactive visual interfaces. Researchers in this fast growing 
field regularly consider the design, implementation, application and 
evaluation of methods that tightly integrate appropriate methods from 
data analysis and interactive data visualization, with the aim of 
solving real-world analysis problems. Innovative Visual Analytics 
approaches to date have been successfully applied in many domains where 
large amounts of complex data need to be explored and understood for 
effective decision making. Examples of the many challenging fields of 
application for Visual Analytics systems include, among others, problems 
in the natural and social sciences, the humanities, in business 
analytics, geospatial information systems, or multimedia analytics.

Topics of interest for the special issue include but are not limited to:

• Scalable visual analytics representations and interaction techniques
• User steering of data analysis methods and parameter space analysis
• Visual Analytics approaches for heterogeneous data analysis problems
• Visual Analytics approaches for large text and video collections
• Spatiotemporal data analytics and visualization
• Big data analytics including very high-dimensional data
• Scientific applications, e.g., in Bioinformatics and Public Health
• Collaborative and distributed analysis processes support

Important dates:

• Abstracts due: July 11, 2014
• Submissions due: July 18, 2014
• Conditional notification: September 15, 2014
