                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                  ACM Symposium on Software Visualization

                               SOFTVIS '03

                     June 11-13, 2003, San Diego, USA
                         Collocated with FCRC'03

          Sponsored by ACM SIGCHI, SIGGRAPH, SIGPLAN and SIGSOFT,
                   and in cooperation with ACM SIGCSE.



Software visualization encompasses the development and evaluation of
methods for graphically representing different aspects of software,
including its structure, its abstract and concrete execution, and its
evolution. The goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for
researchers from different backgrounds (HCI, software engineering,
programming languages, visualization, computer science education) to
discuss and present original research on software visualization.

SoftVis '03 is the first meeting in a planned series of biennial
conferences. Our objective is to make the SoftVis series the premier
venue for presenting all types of research on software visualization.

We seek theoretical as well as practical papers on applications,
techniques, tools and case studies. Topics of interest include, but
are not restricted to, the following:
- Visualization of algorithms, including numerical, geometric, genetic,
  distributed and graph algorithms
- Program visualization
- Protocol and log visualization (security, trust)
- Visualization of parallel programs
- Visualization in software engineering, e.g. UML diagrams
- Visualization of the software development process
- Visualization of data and processes in applications
- Educational software in computer science, in particular visualization
  of computational models
- Graph drawing algorithm for software visualization
- Visualization of data base schemes
- Visual debugging
- 3D software visualization
- Software visualization on the internet
- Program analyses and visualization
- Integration of software visualization tools and development environments
- Empirical evaluation of software visualization system effectiveness

Papers should represent original, unpublished results and will be rigorously
reviewed by the international Program Committee. Papers must be in standard
ACM 2-column format and cannot exceed 10 pages in total length. Authors
should prepare and electronically submit a PDF version of their paper.
Videos not exceeding 5 minutes in length can accompany a paper submission.
Papers are due December 16, 2002. Further details on precise submission
guidelines will be forthcoming.

A set of tutorials will immediately precede the main conference. Tutorial
proposals of no more than 1 or 2 pages (for 90-minute or 3-hour tutorials)
should be submitted to the program chair by January 15, 2003. Include the
proposed title, brief description of material, intended audience, assumed
background of attendees, and the name, affiliation, contact information
(e-mail and phone), and brief biography of speaker(s). An electronic PDF
submission is preferred.

Paper submission:            December 16, 2002.
Tutorial submission:         January 15, 2003.
Notification of acceptance:  January, 27, 2003.
Final papers due:            March, 3, 2003

Student Travel
Conference Attendance Program for Students (CAPS) provides some financial
support to graduate students, enabling them to attend SIGSOFT-sponsored

SoftVis '03 is affiliated with the ACM Federated Computing Research
Conference, a collection of symposia occurring June 7-14 in San Diego, CA.
