LDAV 2015 
The 5th IEEE Symposium on Large Data Analysis and Visualization,
co-located with IEEE VIS 2015, October 25-26, 2015, Chicago, Illinois, USA

Modern large-scale scientific simulations, sensor networks, and
experiments are generating enormous datasets, with some projects
approaching the multiple exabyte range in the near term. Managing and
analyzing large data in order to transform it into insight is critical for
a variety of disciplines including climate science, nuclear physics,
security, materials design, transportation, and urban planning. This is
currently referred to as the Big Data Challenge. The tools and approaches
needed to mine, analyze, and visualize data at extreme scales can be fully
realized only if we have end-to-end solutions, which demands collective,
interdisciplinary efforts.

The 5th IEEE Large Scale Data Analysis and Visualization (LDAV) symposium,
to be held in conjunction with IEEE VIS 2015, is specifically targeting
possible end-to-end solutions. The LDAV symposium will bring together
domain scientists, data analysts, visualization researchers, users,
designers and artists, to foster common ground for solving both near- and
long-term problems.

We are looking for original research contributions on a broad-range of
topics related to collection, analysis, manipulation or visualization of
large-scale data. We also welcome position papers on these topics. Topics
of interest include, but are not limited to:

€ Data collection, management and curation
€ Innovative approaches combining information visualization, visual
analytics, and scientific visualization
€ Streaming methods for analysis, collection and visualization
€ Novel, extreme or innovative methods for understanding and interacting
with data
€ Advanced hardware for data handling or visualization
€ Distributed, parallel or multi-threaded approaches
€ MapReduce-based and database-related methods, algorithms or approaches
€ Hierarchical data storage, retrieval or rendering
€ Collaboration or co-design of data analysis with domain scientists
€ Topics in cognitive issues specific to manipulating and understanding
large data
€ Application case studies
€ Industry solutions for big data
€ End-to-end system solutions

Submission Instructions:
Submitted manuscripts may not exceed 8 pages. The manuscripts can be 4-8
pages, with the authors determining length based on the content. The
manuscripts should be formatted according to guidelines from IEEE VGTC.
Submission site note: Go to the submission site
(https://precisionconference.com/~vgtc), log in, go to 'new submissions',
and select 'LDAV 2015 Papers'.

The proceedings of the symposium will be published together with the VIS
proceedings and via the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Best Paper:
The LDAV Program Committee will present a Best Paper award to the authors
whose submission is deemed the strongest according to the reviewing
criteria. This award will be announced in conjunction with VIS 2015.
