                 - Special Issue on Visual Analytics -

                       vol. 31, no. 3, June 2007

Visual Analytics has become an increasingly important topic on both sides of 
the Atlantic and beyond. The integration of data mining technology and 
information visualization is evolving into a foundation for dealing with the 
rapidly growing amounts of data in very different areas. All scenarios share 
the basic idea to support the capabilities of the human mind by computer 
systems, which extract and compile information from heterogeneous sources and 
present them in an appropriate way to the user. At the technological level, 
achievements in visualization, data processing and analysis from the last two 
decades have to be integrated into this emerging field of research.

The International Journal "Computers & Graphics" has decided to dedicate a 
special issue to Visual Analytics. Contributions to this issue describing 
original research are solicited that contribute to the technical challenges 
posed by Visual Analytics. Thus, topics of interest - within the area of Visual 
Analytics - include, but are not limited to:

- Visual representations and new visual paradigms
- Integration with automated analysis, databases, statistics, design,
   perception, etc.
- Knowledge representation and semantics
- Data streams, data compression & feature extraction
- Scalability in problem size
- Data quality and uncertainty
- Data provenance
- Problem solving, decision science, human analytic discourse
- Evaluation methods
- User acceptability
- Synthesis of problems in applications

Papers for this special issue will be chosen from the submissions based
on their quality and originality. Papers published previously in
conferences should contain significant new material, while including the
previous version with the submission.
