Conference on Visualization and Data Analysis 2005 (EI10)
Part of IS&T/SPIE's International Symposium on Electronic Imaging 2005

11-18 January 2005, San Jose Marriott and San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, California, USA



Excerpt from Conference Proceedings 2003

Introduction 
We welcome you you to the tenth annual conference on Visualization and Data Analysis, originally the conference on Visual Data Exploration and Analysis. Over the last few years we have made many changes to the conference and seen it develop and grow. For example, we now require extended abstracts to be submitted.

Moreover, the number of submissions continues to rise, as does the quality of the submissions and thus the rejection rate has increased.

This year we received just under sixty submissions of which 26 appear here as full papers. A further seven papers appear in the proceedings that were presented as posters. As well as the papers presented here there were two invited talks. The first invited talk was by Craig Wittenbrink (NVidia) who discussed "Visual Computing Architectures" and looked at the architecture and impact of current and future PC graphics architectures. The second talk was by Katy Borner (Indiana University) who spoke about "Visualizing Knowledge Domains". Both invited talks were extremely well attended and received.

The regular contributions to the conference consisted of papers falling into the following categories: applications, biomedical visualization, algorithms, visualization techniques, volume visualization, Internet and web-based visualizations, interaction techniques, large scale data visualization, and scientific visualization. The breadth and diversity of this conference both in terms of the participants and the range of papers is phenomenal and has led to a very unique and exciting environment.

We owe the success of this conference to many, from the members of the program committee who agreed to review a large number of papers, to the outside reviewers without whom the conference would never have taken place, and finally to the authors who are the backbone of the conference.

We hope you enjoy these proceedings and will submit in the coming years. Only with your support can we continue to enjoy the success we have seen in the past few years. In return we promise to provide you with an exciting and high quality conference.

Conference Chairs: 
Robert F. Erbacher, Philip C. Chen, Jonathan C. Roberts, Matti Grohn, Katy Borner
