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

* Only original material should be submitted.
* Commercial papers, descriptions of papers, with no
research/development content, and papers where supporting data or
a technical description cannot be given for proprietary reasons will
not be accepted for presentation in this symposium.
* Abstracts should contain enough detail to clearly convey the
approach and the results of the research.
* Government and company clearance to present and publish

To ensure a high-quality conference, all abstracts and Proceedings
of SPIE papers will be reviewed by the Conference Chairs for
technical merit and content.
Manuscript due dates must be strictly observed. Whether the
conference volume will be published before or after the meeting,
late manuscripts run the risk of not being published in the
Proceedings of SPIE. The objective of this policy is to better serve
the conference participants and the technical community at large.
Your cooperation is appreciated by all.
Accepted authors will receive instructions for submission of the
200-word Final Summary in their author kit. The Final Summaries
will be published and available at the meeting.
Oral or Poster Presentation
Accepted authors will receive instructions for Oral and Poster
presentations in their author kit. All Oral and Poster presentations
are included in the Proceedings of SPIE and require a manuscript.
Proceedings of SPIE
These conferences will result in volumes published in the
Proceedings of SPIE that can be ordered through the Advance
Technical Program. Camera-ready manuscripts are required of all
accepted applicants and must be submitted in English by 27
December 1999. Copyright to the manuscript is expected to be
released for publication in the Proceedings of SPIE. Note: If an
author does not attend the meeting and make a presentation, the
chair may choose not to publish the author's manuscript in the
conference volume. Papers published are indexed in leading
scientific databases including INSPEC, Compendex Plus, Physics
Abstracts, Chemical Abstracts, International Aerospace Abstracts,
and Index to Scientific and Technical Proceedings.
Participant Registration Fee
Authors and coauthors are accorded a reduced symposium
