First International Symposium on
Collaborative Information Visualisation Environments
10 - 11 - 12 July 2002
SOAS, University of London
Call for Papers, Videos and Participation

An increasing number of commercial, research, and educational projects
are collaborative efforts that bring together people with different
skills and expertise. Computers are evolving into mediators of
human-to-human and human-to-data interaction. Domain experts are often
spread out in space and across time zones and consultation and
collaboration has to proceed remotely instead of face-to-face.
Distributed teams need to collaborate and access shared data while some
of their team members are outside of their office environments,
presenting a new set of challenges in terms of data usage and share.
Collaborative Information Visualization Environments (CIVEs) enable
users to interact with the visualization itself: e.g. access, explore,
visualize and manipulate data as well as to interact with one another
while enabling easy reference to the visualization: e.g. users can chat
with one another and, in the process, be able to refer to elements of
the visualization; and/or users can annotate a part or state or even
recorded segment of the visualization so that others can see and comment on
it later. In addition, CIVEs often visualize user interactions
themselves to facilitate information access, collaboration, and

This symposium aims to be a forum for discussion about CIVEs designed
for various user groups, application domains, and interfaces such as 2-D
desktop interfaces, 3-D virtual environments/virtual worlds, handheld
devices, etc. that utilize different information visualization
algorithms, interaction techniques, and modes of collaboration (e.g.
synchronous, asynchronous). Main objectives include, but are not limited
· Increase our understanding of the design requirements for CIVEs.
· Closely examine long-term use of particular CIVEs.
· Identify collaborative practices in collocated visualization processes
that might be supported in CIVEs.
· Gain a better understanding of architectural and infrastructure
requirements for CIVEs.
You are invited to participate in the discussion by submitting papers
and attending the symposium.
