Information visualisation involves the visual representation, presentation and exploration of abstract information. Successful visualisation is a powerful tool with which to tackle the increasing size and complexity of data sets in a wide range of application areas. Examples of application domains include capital markets, software structure, military logistics, social networks, program traces and bio-informatics. The discipline includes elements of many fields, including human-computer interaction, computer graphics, cognitive psychology, statistics, graphic design, algorithms, virtual and augmented reality, and software engineering. The Asia Pacific Information Visualisation Symposium provides an opportunity for the community of researchers in the Asia-Pacific region to share the progress that has been made toward the fulfilment of this promise with colleagues from other parts of the world.
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original and unpublished research. The topics include, but are not limited to:
