*** Upcoming Deadline - Aug 1:  IEEE InfoVis Contest and Posters ***

Infovis 2003 Contest
due Fri 1 Aug 2003
(see also:

For Infovis 2003 we are inviting the submissions of case studies of
the use of information visualization for pairwise comparison of
trees. Several pairs of datasets have been provided, along with a
description of the data and open-ended tasks. Contest entries consist
of a 2-page summary, a video and accompanying materials. First place
entries will receive a prize and will have a speaking slot to present
their work during the contest session at the conference. Second place
entries will present a contest poster.  (Note that duplicate
submissions should *not* be made to both the poster and contest
categories.) All accepted entry materials will be made available
online after the conference.

Infovis 2003 Posters
due Fri 1 Aug 2003 5:00pm PST
(see also:

The interactive poster category includes both traditional posters and
demonstrations of interactive systems, either live on a laptop or
through video. We encourage both submissions of original unpublished
work and submissions showcasing systems of interest to the information
visualization community that have been presented in other venues.
Accepted posters will be included electronically on the IEEE
Visualization 2003 Conference DVD, placed on the official
web site, and also distributed in a hardcopy compendium to all symposium
and conference attendees.

All authors of accepted interactive posters are required to bring an
explanatory hardcopy poster for display during the scheduled evening
poster session, and be available for discussion at that time. Accepted
authors who wish to also show demos of their work are encouraged to also
bring a laptop to the poster session. There will be a limited number of
stations for showing videos during the main poster session. Authors who
wish to show a live demo but cannot provide their own machine should
contact the posters chairs in advance of the submission deadline to
discuss the logistics. All authors who plan to show live demos or video
should clearly indicate this fact in their submissions. Authors are also
required to present a very brief summary (1-3 powerpoint slides) of
their interactive poster at a short preview session earlier in the day.

Interactive poster authors must submit a 2 page summary, in two-column
SIGGRAPH format as described for papers. Those who intend to show demos
are highly encouraged to also submit an accompanying video. Clearly
identify the type of your submission by including the prefix
"Interactive Poster:" in the title of your summary.

Posters Review Process

Each poster will be read and evaluated by both of the Posters Chairs.
Submissions will be evaluated based on whether the content is suitable
for the venue and is not a repetition of the work of others. Authors of
posters that are not accepted will receive summary reviews of their
poster from the chairs explaining the decision and providing feedback.

and electronic submission of posters and optional accompanying digital
