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 on novel ideas in the field. To be accepted, the submitted paper of 3-5 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.

The papers will be discussed and evaluated 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 workshop especially aims for papers that describe the use of visualization software in an educational context.

The invited lecture will start this year's Workshop. Erkki Sutinen will talk to us about The mid-life crisis of Computer Science: Can ethnocomputing animate program visualization?.

Please also take a look at the PVW 2006 proceedings.
