Due date: June 27, 2008

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2008 ACM Symposium on Software Visualization (SoftVis'08) to be held September 16-17, 2008 in Herrsching am Ammersee, Germany

We invite you to consider presenting a Poster at SoftVis'08.

This poster session provides an opportunity for participants to present and discuss their research. This event will feature concurrent short presentations by participants organized in poster formats. Each participant will be allowed space on an easel for the presentation. SoftVis'08 attendees will be able to wander among the posters and talk to presenters about their research.

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 goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers from different backgrounds (HCI, software engineering, programming languages, visualization, computer science education) to discuss and present original research on software visualization.

Poster presentations describing research in the following areas are welcome:

  • Visualization of algorithms, including numerical, geometric, genetic, distributed and graph algorithms
  • Visualization in software engineering, e.g. UML diagrams
  • Visualization-based software in computer science and software engineering education
  • Integration of software visualization tools and development environments
  • Program visualization
  • Protocol and log visualization (security, trust)
  • Visualization of parallel programs
  • Visualization of the software development process
  • Visualization of data and processes in applications
  • Graph drawing algorithms for software visualization
  • Visualization of data base schemes
  • Visual debugging
  • 3D software visualization
  • Software visualization on the internet
  • Program analyses and visualization
  • Empirical evaluation of software visualization system effectiveness
  • Visualization of Web Services
  • Visualization of workflow and business processes

Before submitting a poster, please note the following:

  • Poster submissions should not exceed two(!) US Letter size pages in two-column format. Authors should prepare and electronically submit a PDF version of their poster submission following the instructions for authors of conferences sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH.
  • All poster submissions must be sent by email to until June 27, 20008.
  • At least one of the poster authors must be present at the conference.

All questions pertaining to the SoftVis'06 poster session should be directed to Chris Hundhausen h_u_n_d_h_a_u_s (at) w_ s_ u (dot) e_d_u
