Second Call For Papers, and extended deadline

First International Symposium on Non-visual & Multimodal Visualization
14 - 16th July 2004, London, UK

A symposium of the International Conference on
Information Visualization (IV04)

Extended paper deadline: 31st March 2004.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together top practitioners,
researchers, developers and users of non-visual and multimodal
visualization, and multisensory perception issues of visualization.

Non-visual communication is on the increase. Indeed, information can be
presented by sound, touch, or any of our senses: utilizing our ability
to perform multisensory perception. Not only are these environments
useful for accessibility, but by using different modalities the
compound presentation (1) can be more understandable (the additional
modality reinforces the former), (2) the diverse modalities may enable
information to be perceived in situations where visual display devices
cannot be used effectively (such as when using small screens or remote
operation) and (3) the user may more easily perceive the information
through one sense as opposed to another. Over the last few years,
different devices have been designed which allow the user to perceive
information through sound (sonification) or by means of tactile,
kinesthetic or force-feedback channels. It is also possible to utilize
other senses such as smell (olfaction) or taste.

Original papers are solicited in the area of non-visual, multimodal and
multisensory visualization. In particular we encourage papers detailing
novel devices, formal models, applications and in-depth reviews for
visualization. Example topics include, but are not limited to:
        - Non-visual visualization
        - Dynamic & exploratory non-visual visualization
        - Multimodal visualization
        - Multisensory perception for visualization
        - Force-feedback and haptic visualization, including:
             kinesthetic, tactile and force-feedback devices and
             applications; temperature-based visualization
        - Sonification/Auralization, including:
                - image sonification,
                - schematic sonification
                - algorithm sonification
                - auralization
                - Earcons
                - High fidelity (realistic) sound rendering in VR
        - Visualization by smell (Olfaction) or taste (Gustation)
        - Perception issues for multimodal visualization
        - Multi-perception VR environments
        - Visualization accessibility
