> Visualization is rapidly becoming an important field in the analysis and
> understanding of data. The rate at which data is generated and captured is
> increasing daily with new technological improvements. The techniques used
> to aid domain scientists in understanding this data must see a
> corresponding improvement. Dissemination of new techniques and experiences
> is imperative to increasing the use and scope of visualization.
> This two-day conference runs concurrently with many other SPIE and IS&T
> conferences (many in related areas of interest to the visualization
> scientist) and extensive exhibits. Papers are sought covering all aspects
> of visualization. Work in progress papers are
> acceptable. Example topics include, but are not limited to:
> * data exploration (classical and novel approaches)
> * information and scientific visualization
> * volume and flow visualization
> * Internet and web-based technologies
> * analysis techniques and data mining
> * virtual environments and data visualization
> * databases and visualization
> * high performance computing and visualization (parallel rendering)
> * perceptual issues (including auditorial representations of data)
> * interaction paradigms and human factors
> * applications (medical applications, financial applications, etc.)
> * tools and applications (including case studies).
> The papers from this conference will be published in a bound Proceedings
> available from SPIE. Authors of the best papers in the conference will have
> their names forwarded to the Journal of Electronic Imaging for possible
> submission and review of an extended version of their paper. Authors may
> also potentially have their papers included in a special issue of the
> Journal on Electronic Imaging focusing on visualization. Additional
> information can be found at:
> IS&T/SPIE's Symposium on ELECTRONIC IMAGING 2000:
> Science and Technology
