Preliminary Call- for-Papers for AVI'02

ADVANCED VISUAL INTERFACES
International Working Conference - May 22-24, 2002
Trento, Italy

http://www.diel.univaq.it/avi2002

SCOPE

The 6th International Working Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces
(AVI'02) will be held in Trento, Italy,  May 22-24, 2002. This edition
will be the sixth of a series initiated with AVI'92 in Roma, and
continued with AVI'94 in Bari, AVI'96 in Gubbio, AVI'98 in L'Aquila, and
AVI 2000 in Palermo. The Conference has the aim of bringing together
experts in different areas of computer science who have a common
interest in the conception, design and implementation of visual
interfaces. Both formal methods and concrete applications well fit into
the framework of this working conference, which focus on information
visualization, graphical and pictorial communication tools, virtual
reality applications, multimedia environments, WWW interfaces, visual
languages, visual database systems, adaptive interfaces, cognitive
science, and metaphor analysis. Furthermore, with an eye to the
requirements and constraints of new class of computers (such as digital
assistants, palmtops and mobile phones), we open to perceptual
interfaces, not limited to the use of visual techniques, which appear to
many scientists as the appropriate solution to the design of dedicated
interfaces, optimised for a given hardware and/or specific applications.
As in  the previous editions, the program will comprise invited talks,
given by leaders in the field.

PAPER SUBMISSION

We strongly encourage submissions that address research and development
on the above and other related topics, or that propose new approaches
suitable for fulfilling the demands that characterize advanced
interfaces of the next generation. Two kinds of contribution are
solicited: RESEARCH papers, up to 8000 words (approximately 20
double-spaced pages including figures),  and SYSTEM papers, up to 4000
words (approximately 10 double-spaced pages including figures). System
papers will be accompanied by a demonstration of the software prototype
and should include a detailed project/system description specifying

____________________________________________________________ VENUE

We look forward to welcoming you in Trento, chief town of the Trentino
region. Situated at the centre of the great itineraries between lake
Garda and the Dolomites, Venice - Verona and Bolzano - Innsbruck, Trento
is a Renaissance jewel set in the heart of the Alps. Originally a Roman
city and a bridge between Italian and middle European culture, Trento's
Renaissance heritage has been preserved in its prestigious monuments
built by the prince bishops who ruled the city for eight centuries and
elevated it to the height of the XIX ecumenical Council in the 16th
century. The castle, the cathedral and its wonderful square, the
frescoed houses, the churches of the Council, the museums and
exhibitions make Trento a city of art, culture and traditions beyond
those of the Alps.
The airport closest to Trento is Verona airport. There are very frequent
trains from Milano (Italy) and from Munich (Germany).
