The IEEE Visualization 2008 conference will be held in Columbus, Ohio this year. The VGTC committee decided to call the paper presentations, art exhibits, panels, posters, worshops:VisWeek . The idea is to have all the events that are based on data visualization of some sort are clubbed under one event name. Previously, in the past people would attend InfoVis and then leave or attend only Vis (which generally starts on a tuesday/wednesday) and then leave at the end of the week. I think its a great idea that they are allowing attendees to attend the whole week of amazing talks and presentations. I am sure such an endeavor will encourage interactions between people and lead to more interesting results for the community.
Well, as one of the marquee events of the conference, the list of accepted papers for the conference has been posted on their website.
I am keenly looking forward to reading some papers and shall post my thoughts on them as soon as I can my hands on them :)
The posters, panels, workshops, tutorials etc links too have been updated. All the links can be found from the main page at http://vis.computer.org/VisWeek2008/
It definitely promises to be a great event. If you have a preprint of an accepted paper that you wouldnt mind linking to, please do so in the comments section.
Which papers are you looking forward to? Do write and let me know.
