Visualization is rapidly becoming an important field in the analysis
and understanding of data. The rate at which data is generated and
captured is increasing daily with new technological improvements. The
techniques used to aid domain scientists in understanding this data
must see a corresponding improvement. Dissemination of new techniques
and experiences is imperative to increasing the use and scope of

This two-day conference runs concurrently with many other SPIE and
IS&T conferences (many in related areas of interest to the
visualization scientist) and extensive exhibits. Papers are sought
covering all aspects of visualization. Work in progress papers are
acceptable. Example topics include, but are not limited to:

   o  Data Exploration (classical and novel approaches)
   o  Information and Scientific Visualization
   o  Volume and Flow Visualization
   o  Internet and Web Based Technologies
   o  Analysis Techniques and Data Mining
   o  Virtual Environments and Data Visualization
   o  Databases and Visualization
   o  High Performance Computing and Visualization (parallel
   o  Perceptual Issues (including auditorial representations of
   o  Interaction Paradigms and Human Factors
   o  Applications (medical applications, financial applications,
   o  Tools and Applications (including case studies)

The papers from this conference will be published in a bound
proceedings available from SPIE. Authors of the best papers in the
conference will have their names forwarded to the Journal of
Electronic Imaging for possible submission and review of an extended
version of their paper. Authors may also potentially have their
included in a special issue of the Journal on Electronic Imaging
focusing on visualization. Additional information can be found at:

2 Page Extended Abstracts are due from authors June 28, 1999.
