Call for Papers

Call for Papers for the Fourth Program Visualization Workshop

The University of Florence will organize the Fourth Program Visualization Workshop in conjunction of the ITiCSE 2006 conference at Bologna <>.

The goal of the workshop is to analyze the state-of-art program visualization methods, and to form a deeper understanding on meaningful and functional visualization in the context of programming, data structures and algorithms in education, industry, and research.

The organizers of the workshop are looking for research and position papers as well as reports on work in progress on novel ideas in the field. To be accepted, the submitted paper of 3-6 pages should present a new approach or constructively evaluate an existing visualization paradigm, scheme, or technique. The number of participants will be limited to 25.

There are two submission categorieswork in progress and position papers can have 3-4 pages, while research papers can have 5-6 pages.

Accepted papers will be presented and discussed at the workshop, and the authors will have time to compose the final version within three months after the workshop. The proceedings will include the final papers, together with invited lectures. The publisher of the final proceedings will be announced here later.

The proceedings of PVW 2006 are availble at the ACM Digital Library and linked here.
