International Symposium on the Intersection of Visualization, Art, and Design

July 13 – 15, 2011, London, UK

Call for Papers

Deadline: Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Applications at the intersection of art and visualization have become a recurring theme at visualization, graphics, and HCI conferences. Inspirations from artistic movements, artistic practice, and the field of aesthetics have stimulated visualization research with an increasing number of practitioners creating works that transcend these fields. Performance, sonic, and visual artists, designers, and architects have capitalized on innovations from the computing sciences, expanding their semiology, to create radically new representations of form and process. At the core of all works is the concept of information, its transformation, and its representation. It is at this nexus that the symposium resides. Its goal is to develop and promote an expanding dialog among individuals and groups working in the digital information arts, sciences, and technologies, by providing a venue for discussions about their works and the processes through which they were created.

Submissions to this symposium are invited from the breadth of the digital arts, science, and technology, including artists, scientists, technologists, designers, architects, psychologists, historians, critical theorists, practitioners, and others. Theories, applications, analyses, case studies, reviews, and manifestos that address all manner of process or product are welcome.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

• Artistic and design practices supporting the visualization process
• Artist, designer, scientist, technologist collaborations
• Art by visualizers
• Visualizations by artists and designers
• Artistic creations and practice based on scientific/technological models and simulations
• Virtual and physical information artifacts related to, or created through, artistic and design processes
• Artistic mapping of information, including cartographic art, virtual and built architectural environments, interactive systems, and animations.
• Infographic design and its associated process
