The 5th International Symposium on Knowledge Domain Visualization (KDViz'06) 

********** *********************


4,5 - 7 July 2006





Call for Papers, Videos and Participation

Proceeding will be published by IEEE COMPUTER SOCIETY 


Knowledge Domain Visualization (KDViz) aims to improve our understanding of the development of a knowledge domain through the study of a wide variety of quantitative and qualitative properties of a knowledge domain. KDViz emphasizes the great potential of an approach that integrates techniques such as information visualization, exploratory data analysis, information retrieval, and information science.




International Symposium on KDViz aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of disciplines to address theories, methodologies, techniques, applications, evaluations and case studies in relation to KDViz. The symposium also aims to promote the cross-disciplinary awareness between disciplines such as information visualization and information science. For the purpose of this symposium, a knowledge domain is broadly defined as a dynamic, evolving intellectual structure of a given subject matter. Knowledge domain visualization aims to reveal the dynamics of a knowledge domain by utilizing a wide variety of techniques involving visual thinking, visual discovery, visual exploration, and visual analysis.




The symposium will seek original papers concerning, but not limited to, the following topics. Submitted papers must clearly demonstrate a connection between information visualization and the study of a knowledge domain:


Fundamentals of KDViz 

Case Studies 

Citation Analysis 

Domain Analysis and Modeling 

Historical, Sociological, or Philosophical Approaches 

Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Representation, and Knowledge Diffusion 

Invisible Colleges, Scientific Networks, Social Networks, Scientific Paradigms 

Qualitative and Quantitative Methodologies 


Dynamic Models of Scientific Disicplines 

Growth Models of Science and Technology 



A major goal of the symposium is to demonstrate and compare different techniques, algorithms, and approaches that can be utilized to analyze and visualize knowledge domains. In order to facilitate this goal a large-scale data set from the information visualization domain will be made available and participants will be encouraged to utilize this data set to demonstrate new approaches and algorithms.


Further Publications: Additional opportunities of publication include journal special issues and an edited book.
