Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will feature a selection of carefully revised and extended papers to be presented at the 11th International Conference on Information Visualization Theory and Applications (IVAPP 2020), to be held in Valletta, Malta, 27–29 February, 2020. IVAPP aims to become a major point of contact between 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.

Selected papers that were presented at the conference are invited to be submitted as extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Information after the conference.

The conference paper should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper; authors are asked to disclose that it is a conference paper in their cover letter and include a statement on what has been changed compared to the original conference paper. Each submission to this journal issue should contain at least 50% new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in Information and collected together on this Special Issue website.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
