Proceedings of the Information Visualization Conference
In recent years, information visualization has emerged as a critical skill in modern organizations. It enables decision-makers to understand complex data with less effort, delivering value to the entire organization. Graphs, charts, and maps are common tools for this purpose, and they make it easier to interpret data and discover insights.
The field of information visualization is built on theory in information design, human-computer interaction, visual design, art, cognitive psychology, and statistical graphics. It involves 2D and 3D representations of data, including diagrams, graphs, maps, and virtual reality models.
Research in information visualization has grown over the last two decades, with advances in technology and the rise of big data. This has led to the development of tools and strategies that allow people to visualize and interact with data in new ways, turning raw data into actionable insights.
Increasingly, information visualization is used to raise awareness and advocate for social and political change. This is especially true for the use of data visualization in climate change research and human rights advocacy.
This field is also becoming increasingly important for industries like healthcare and retail, where businesses need to display data in a way that allows non-technical users to quickly and easily digest information. This helps users make informed decisions and keep the organization competitive in a rapidly evolving marketplace.
Researchers in the field of information visualization have made significant contributions to this field, and their work is highly influential. This has led to the formation of several conferences, trade shows, workshops and vendors of tools, software and training courses.
The main goals of the Conference are to become a major point of contact between researchers and practitioners in the field. During the conference, presentations are held on a variety of topics associated with information visualization but also with related fields such as scientific visualization or visual analytics.
Top Authors & Affiliations
The conference proceedings feature many articles written by top-notch authors in the field of information visualization, which have received high citations. These are shown in the chart below.
Thomas Ertl, Technische Universitat Darmstadt and Mariko Sasakura are the most cited authors of papers published in the proceedings. These authors have written about a number of different topics and have had a strong impact on the industry.
This is reflected in the number of times their work has been cited in other publications, as measured by h-index. The h-index is a measure of how much a publication in a journal or conference has been cited by other researchers.
It also reflects how effective a particular venue is in reaching other researchers with the papers published there. It is important to note that each conference and journal has a different success rate in this regard.
The conference focuses on research topics under the domains of Visualization, Artificial intelligence and Human-computer interaction. This is because the work on these topics has a lot of impact across many disciplines, thereby providing a comprehensive perspective.
