Information Visualisation involves the visual
exploration and reporting of abstract information, such as crime
statistics, flows in capital markets, military logistics status, family
trees, and the structure of the World-Wide Web. Key challenges include the
need for effective representation of, and intuitive interaction with, the
required information. The increasing affordability of computing power and
computer graphics devices over the past 15 years has promised that
Information Visualisation can deliver both at a reasonable cost. The
Australasian Information Visualisation Symposium aims to investigate the
progress that has been made by researchers in Australia, New Zealand and
abroad toward the fulfilment of this promise.
Topics include but are not limited to:
for information visualisation.
Australian Computer Science Week is
also being held during February 4 - 7, 2003, and is specifically designed as a
generalist forum for Australian and New Zealand computer science academics. The
conference is hosted by The South Australian Consortium for Information
Technology, Adelaide, South Australia.
