Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue of the Informatics journal welcomes submissions on the topics of information visualization, visual analytics, scientific visualization, mathematical visualization, and visual reasoning. The emphasis of this special issue is interactive visualizations. This exciting and vibrant field is an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. In general, our ability to collect, store, and archive data vastly exceeds our ability to derive useful knowledge and insight from it. This is a ubiquitous problem. By exploiting the human visual system, visualization is key to an understanding of phenomena by externalizing patterns and relationships in large, complex data sets and information spaces. Interacting with visualizations enhances their utility, allowing a greater degree of reasoning with information. This special issue welcomes applications, design, theory, and models and frameworks of interactive visualizations and visual analytics. We encourage authors to submit their original research articles, work in progress, surveys, reviews, and viewpoint articles in this field. Some sample topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Visual Data Analysis and Knowledge Discovery
  • Visual Representation and Interaction
  • Human-Centered Interactive Visualizations
  • Interactivity of Visualizations
  • Interaction with Visual Information
  • Foundations of Interactive Visual Analysis
  • Display and Interaction Technology
  • Databases and visualization, Visual Data Mining
  • Graph Visualization

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Informatics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
