Aims and Scope
This  symposium aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum for researchers
and practitioners from a wide
variety  of  disciplines  to  address  theories, methodologies, techniques,
applications, and case studies
of  knowledge  domain  visualization  (KDViz).  The  symposium also aims to
promote the cross-disciplinary
awareness   between  disciplines  such  as  information  visualization  and
information science. For the purpose
of  this  symposium,  a  knowledge  domain is broadly defined as a dynamic,
evolving intellectual structure
of  a  given  subject matter. Knowledge domain visualization aims to reveal
the dynamics of a knowledge
domain by utilizing a wide variety of techniques involving visual thinking,
visual discovery, visual exploration,
and visual analysis.

The symposium will seek original papers concerning, but not limited to, the
following topics. Submitted papers
must clearly demonstrate a connection between information visualization and
the study of a knowledge domain:

 Case Studies
 Citation Analysis
 Domain Analysis and Modeling
 Historical, Sociological, or Philosophical Studies of Science
 Knowledge Discovery
 Knowledge Representation
 Invisible Colleges, Scientific Networks, Scientific Paradigms
 Qualitative and Quantitative Methodologies
 Scientometrics
 Small-World Networks
 Social and Ecological Issues
 Tracking the Development of a Knowledge Domain
 Visual Exploration of a Knowledge Domain
