Welcome to SoftVis'10!Software visualization encompasses the development and evaluation of methods for graphically representing different aspects of software, including its structure, its abstract and concrete execution, and its evolution. The ACM Symposium on Software Visualization (SoftVis), now at its fifth edition, is the premiere forum for researchers from different backgrounds (HCI, software engineering, programming languages, visualization, and computer science education) to present original research on software visualization.
We seek theoretical as well as practical papers on applications, techniques, tools, case studies, and empirical studies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Authors should prepare and electronically submit their papers (up to 10 pages in standard ACM 2-column format). The submission of a video (up to 5 minutes in length) to accompany the paper is encouraged.
Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library. Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue on Software Visualization in the Information Visualization Journal. As in the previous SOFTVIS editions we will award a best paper.
In addition to technical papers, we are also inviting poster and tool demo submissions. Posters and tool demos offer the opportunity to present new ideas and work in progress during an interactive session. Authors should prepare and submit poster and tool demo abstracts of up to 2 pages in in standard ACM 2-column format. Accepted abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings.
