Call for Participation

The Technische Universität Darmstadt will organize the Sixth Program Visualization Workshop in conjunction with the ITiCSE 2011 conference at Darmstadt, Germany <>.

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 3-8 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 categories: work in progress and position papers can have up to 6 pages, while research papers can have up to 8 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.

At the moment, we plan to publish the two best papers in ACM TOCE, the Transactions on Computing Education.
