Panel Proposals (due March 31, 1994)

Panels should address the most important issues in visualization today,
with emphasis on research, applications, systems and results. Panelists
should be experts in their field who discuss the challenges of
visualization.   Summaries of panelists' position statements will
appear in the proceedings. Panel sessions are 90 - 120 minutes in
length, with 3 to 5 speakers in addition to the Panel Chair. At the
Panel Session, panelists should each make a brief position statement
addressing issues and include a moderated discussion which may
include the audience. Panel proposals should describe the topic to be
addressed and identify the prospective panelists. In the panel proposal
each panelist should include a position statement on the topic and a
short biography, the total of which should be limited to 500 words.
The statement will be included in the conference proceedings.

Interdisciplinary Case Studies (due March 31, 1994):

Case studies is a forum for scientists from various disciplines to
discuss applications, experience, and challenges of visualization, and
to present potential topics of future research. These sessions provide
an interdisciplinary meeting point between scientists, engineers and
physicians from different areas such as astrophysics, atmospheric
sciences, computational fluid dynamics, engineering, geology,
medicine, anthropology, chemistry, etc.  Please submit a short paper
(1000 words) describing the case study. The submission of images
and/or NTSC video to accompany the paper is recommended. A short
paper (maximum 4 pages including images) will be included in the
conference proceedings; the video may be included in the conference

Mini-Workshop and Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) Proposals
(due March 31, 1994)

Evening mini-workshops and birds-of-a-feather (BOF) gatherings on
specific visualization methods or application areas will be offered on
Sunday or as evening sessions.  They  should deal with state-of-the-art
topics and involve experts in the field. Discipline-focused proposals
devoted to a particular discipline's methods and needs are encouraged
(e.g. visualization related to molecular biology). If appropriate, the
session may be co-sponsored by another professional organization.
These sessions are forums for participants to exchange views. Mini-
workshop organizers select approximately 20 participants based on
responses to a CFP published in the Visualization '94 Advance
Announcement. BOFS will be described in the Advance Program and
Final Program and attendance is ad hoc. Proposals should describe
the theme and goals of the Mini-Workshop or BOF, the activities
planned, and a brief description of the organizer's background.

Tutorial Proposals (due March 31, 1994)

Half-day and full-day course proposals are invited for visualization
systems, methods, and application areas. Tutorials will be offered
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, preceding the Wednesday through
Friday Visualization '94 Conference.  Proposals should clearly
identify the visualization proficiencies expected of participants at a
beginning, intermediate, or advanced level. Tutorial proposals should
include an abstract of the tutorial topic, a description of the tutorials'
organization to include time allocation for major course topics, the
duration (1/2 day or 1 day), the level of the tutorial, and the
background and address information of each of the instructors.
Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the tutorial's
relevance, importance and suitability for presentation in a tutorial
format; the past experience and qualifications of the instructors, and
the overall balance in the tutorial program.  The Tutorial Organizer
will be responsible for development of the Tutorial Notes for the
Tutorial, the notes will be due in August.

Demonstration Proposals (due May 30, 1994)

Visualization '94 is a unique opportunity to present your products to
visualization experts from a wide variety of fields. We invite
applications for demonstrations of commercial hardware, software,
integrated systems, peripherals, and literature. We encourage
commercial demonstrators to have technical representatives in
attendance. Call or write for a packet which includes fees for
commercial demonstrations and past attendee demographics.
Registration for the technical conference is included in the
commercial demonstration fee. Commercial demonstrators confirmed
before June 15, 1994 will be announced in the Visualization '94
Advance Program.

Research groups from academia and research labs are invited to
demonstrate their work interactively at Visualization '94.  Proposals
should summarize the work to be presented and identify the
hardware/software platform required. Proposals from non-profit
organizations will be reviewed and will be accepted based on the
anticipated level of interest in the research and the space available.
Demonstrations will be held on Wednesday and Thursday during the

Call for Corporate Partners

We are interested in organizations to partner with the Visualization
'94 Conference Committee in offering this highly technical
visualization week.  Visualization '94 is a non-profit organization and
the support of Corporate Partners allows the conference to keep
registration costs to a minimum, while providing state-of-the art
information about visualization for attendees from a novice
implementor to an advanced researcher level.  Corporate Partners are
acknowledged in the Advance and Final Programs, and in the
conference proceedings. For more information, please contact Nahum
