Computer-based information visualization, or "infovis", centers around
helping people explore or explain data by designing interactive
software that exploits the capabilities of the human perceptual
system.  The central design challenge in infovis is designing a
cognitively useful spatial mapping of a dataset that is not inherently
spatial.  There are many possible visual encodings, only a fraction of
which are helpful for a given task. We draw on the intellectual
history of several traditions, including computer graphics,
human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, semiotics, graphic
design, statistical graphics, cartography, and art. The synthesis of
relevant ideas from these fields with new methodologies and techniques
made possible by interactive computation are critical for helping
people keep pace with the torrents of data confronting them. One of
the few resources increasing faster than the speed of computer
hardware is the amount of data to be processed.

InfoVis is the primary meeting in the field of information
visualization, and is held in conjunction with the IEEE Visualization
2003 (Vis03) conference.  This year we have introduced new paper
categories (due March 31, using electronic submission) and an InfoVis
contest.  Further, the symposium is starting a half day earlier, on
Sunday afternoon.  Please see the conference website for more details.
