5th Doctoral Research Workshop

Information Visualisation

Organised by

Information Visualisation Society

In cooperation with

Visualisation & Graphics Research Unit, LSBU

The Visualization Lab, University of Plymouth.


The Information Visualisation Society (IVS) is an international organization that aims to provide a foundation for integrating the human-centred, technological and strategic aspects of information visualisation in order to promote international exchange, cooperation and development. Building upon the reported success of last year’s workshop, IVS is pleased to announce the “5th Doctoral Research Workshop” which will run as part of the 15th International Conference on Information Visualisation (IV2012).


Who can present?

All doctoral students involved in research, within the field of information visualisation, are welcome to present their research at this event. Students at any stage of their research programme may present their work to date for discussion and feedback. However, please note that places for presentation of work are strictly limited to a maximum of eight.


In order for our combined industrial and academic panel of researchers to provide constructive and useful feedback to each of the presenters, the following information is required:


·         The overall title of your research

·         An outline of your PhD research – no more than 700 words

·         A list of any presentations, abstracts or papers already published from your research (for those towards the end of their programmes of study)


It would also be useful if you could provide us with the date you started the research and the name, affiliation and website addresses of those involved in the supervision of your research. Please note that you need to email this information to the iV2012 Secretariat as soon as possible, but no later than, 21st June 2012.


Can I attend without presenting?

If you do not wish to present at this event, you have the option of attending without presenting. Last year we have many attendees who found the experience useful and so we wish to encourage everyone to attend this session. It will provide you with a great opportunity to meet other students and researchers, working in the same area, and who knows you might even make some key contacts for your future career.


When is it and how much will it cost?

·         The workshop will take place on 10th July 2012 at LIRMM CNRS University Montpellier II, Montpellier, France (the day before the main iV2012 conference)
