Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue intends to contain a selection of carefully revised and extended best papers to be presented at the 9th International Conference on Information Visualization Theory and Applications (IVAPP 2018), to be held at Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, 27–29 January, 2018. IVAPP aims at becoming a major point of contact for researchers, engineers and practitioners in Information Visualization. The conference covers a broad range of topics related to Information Visualization indicated by the topic list below. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques, as well as general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. The paper acceptance for IVAPP 2018 will be based on quality, relevance to the conference theme and originality.

The authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality will be invited after the conference to submit revised and extended versions of their originally accepted conference papers to this Special Issue of Information published by MDPI in open access. The selection of these best papers will be based on their ratings in the conference review process, quality of the presentation during the conference, and expected impact to the research community. Each submission to this journal issue should contain at least 50% of new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases. These extended submissions will undergo a peer-review process according to the journal’s rules of action as described in the Manuscript Submission Information given below. At least two members of the IVAPP 2018 program committee will act as reviewers for each extended article submitted to this Special Issue; if needed additional external reviewers will be invited to guarantee the high quality of the reviewing process.

The preliminary deadline for submission to this Special Issue is 1 May, 2018.

The scope and topics of interest of the Special Issue papers follow those of IVAPP 2018 and are listed below.
