SCOPE:
------

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:

- Visualization of algorithms
- Program visualization
- Visualization in software engineering, e.g. UML diagrams
- Visualization of parallel programs
- Visualization-based software in computer science and software
  engineering education
- Visualization of workflow and business processes
- Integration of software visualization tools and development
  environments
- Visualization of data and processes in applications
- Visualization of web services
- Visualization of software evolution
- Visualization of the software development process
- Visualization of data base schemes
- Protocol and log visualization (security, trust)
- Source code visualization
- Graph drawing algorithms for software visualization
- Visual debugging
- Program analyses and visualization
- 3D software visualization
- Software visualization on the internet
- Empirical evaluation of software visualization


SUBMISSIONS:
------------

Papers are solicited that present original, unpublished research
results and will be rigorously reviewed by an international program
committee. Authors should prepare and electronically submit their
papers (up to 10 pages in standard ACM 2-column format,
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates)
according to the instructions on the symposium website:
http://www.softvis.org/softvis10.
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 (http://www.palgrave-journals.com/ivs/). 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 standard ACM 2-column format. Accepted abstracts will
be included in the conference proceedings.
