                                           WebVis 2000

                             Second International Workshop on

                           Web-Based Information Visualization

                                           in conjunction with the

                   11th International Conference on Database and Expert
Systems Applications

                                            DEXA 2000
                                        Date: September 4 - 8, 2000
                                     Location: Greenwich, United Kingdom

                      Workshop proceedings to be published by IEEE Computer
Society Press


     Information visualization combines aspects of scientific
human-computer interaction, data mining, imaging and graphics.
     It focuses on information which is often abstract. This means that
interesting classes of information have no natural and obvious
     physical representation. A key research problem is to discover new
visual metaphors for representing information and to understand
     which analytical tasks they support.
     The largest information space is perhaps the World Wide Web, which
contains millions of pages. Information visualization in this
     domain enables users to get information quickly, put it in a
shape, and to make decisions in a relatively short time.
     Web-based information visualization describes visualization
applications that use the Web as an information source, a delivery
     mechanism for visualization, or both.

     The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners who are working in key technology areas of Information
     Visualization  in order to discuss recent research findings and
complementary research and development issues. Of particular
     interest are papers describing different visualization techniques to
make use of the information available in the net or how
     Web-techniques can be used to visualize information

     Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

          Web as new medium for visualization
          Web-based visualization techniques (e.g. providing interactive
views of environmental data on the WWW)
          Typical taxonomies of information visualization (e.g. data,

          Web-based development tools for visualization (e.g. VRML, Java)
          Web-based visualization for data analysis (e.g. structured or
unstructured data)
          Visualization examples (e.g. applications):
               hierarchical information (e.g. web structures),
               networks (Web-based network traffic monitoring tool)
               content-based document clustering (e.g. clustering documents
into an information space based on their content)
               visualization of  Web search results
               information space metaphors
               visualization techniques for small devices (e.g. cellular
phones, palm tops)
               empirical studies
               comparative studies of Information Visualization

          DataBase Management and Information Retrieval oriented enabling
technologies supporting Information Visualization on the
          Enabling technologies supporting the integration of Web-based
Information Visualization and Web-based Multimedia
          Information Visualization supporting Web technologies (e.g. how
information visualization can make the Web easier to use)
          Usage and User-Centered Web-based Information Visualization (e.g.
how to make information visualization more useful)
          Web-based decision making resources
          Data Mining as information technology for clickstream analysis,
navigability measurements

The papers must clearly show how the technical solutions described
contribute to the area of web-based information visualization.

Authors are invited to submit research contributions representing original,
unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated
based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of
exposition. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the
program committee. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer
Society Press as proceedings of the DEXA 2000 workshops. All
submitted papers should not be longer than 10 pages (5000 words). The IEEE
author guidelines will be send to each author after the
acceptance of the paper.

Electronic Submission

ONLY EMAIL SUBMISSIONS of full and abstract papers in Postscript or PDF
format will be accepted.
Please send also an abstract (no more than 250 words in ASCII text) of the
paper via email including title
of the paper, authors' names and 3-4 relevant keywords. The title page must
include the name and email address of the contact author.

Please submit your paper electronically by e-mail to : Guido Menkhaus,
