Call for Papers: Special issue on Theory and Application of Visual Analytics
Journal of Multimedia Processing and Technologies

Submission Deadline: 11.05.2012

The Journal of Multimedia Processing and Technologies (JMPT) aims to
provide a multi-disciplinary forum to present and discuss theory and
research, development, architectures, networking, system support tools and
applications as well as case studies of multimedia and hypermedia. It also
features experimental and survey articles. It seeks to fill the gap that
exists between several fields and communities such as image processing,
video processing, audio analysis, information retrieval and understanding,
data management and mining, security, and education.

The special issue on Theory and Application of Visual Analytics will
collect theoretical advances and practical applications of Visual
Analytics for semantic and multimedia systems.

Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by
interactive visual techniques. It integrates techniques from visualization
and computer graphics, statistics and mathematics, data management and
knowledge representation, data analysis and machine learning and cognitive
and perceptual sciences. Real-world applications in areas like multimedia
retrieval, media analysis or investigation of semantic graphs require
efficient access and analysis of massive, heterogeneous, dynamic knowledge
repositories which frequently contain ambiguous or conflicting evidence .
Visual Analytics advocates a promising combination of automatic analysis
and human pattern recognition abilities and domain knowledge to address
this challenge.

We encourage submission of original research papers reporting on
theoretical advances, evaluation results or applications of Visual
Analytics in relevant real-world scenarios. All submissions will be peer
reviewed by a board of international experts.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

-Visual representations and interaction techniques
-Visualisation of search results, e.g. in multimedia corpora
-Visualisation of knowledge structures, e.g. semantic graphs
– Visualisation of temporal and spatial data
– Human computer interfaces for knowledge and information visualisation
– New display and interaction technologies, i.e. multitouch and
stereoscopic 3D
-Analytical reasoning support, i.e. discourse and collaborative
-Data management and knowledge representations
– Data analysis and machine learning
-Knowledge relationship discovery
-Cognitive and perceptual factors in Visual Analytics
– Empirical studies of Visual Analytics techniques
-Evaluation of Visual Analytics techniques
-Application reports, i.e. success stories or stories on
spectacular failures
