Workshop on New Paradigms in
Information Visualization and Manipulation

December 2, 1995--- Baltimore, Maryland

In Conjunction with the ACM Conference on

Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM'95)
November 28--December 2, 1995

The CIKM '95 Workshop on New Paradigms in Informa-
tion Visualization and Manipulation will be a forum
for presentation and discussion of new ideas and
techniques for accessing, visualizing and manipulating
information. Topics of interest include, but are
not restricted to: applications of virtual reality,
including VRML; shared virtual environments and simu-
lations; dynamic data visualization; visualization of
multidimensional information spaces; visualization of
large, dynamic information collections; applications of
Internet tools such as MUDs, MOOs, and IRCs; document
and corpus metrics; multi-modal information displays;
software and hardware architectures to support in-
formation visualization; and social interaction in
multi-user information visualization systems. We are
particularly interested in reports of work in progress,
implementation techniques, and practical experience
with visualization of information collections of all
sizes. A significant portion of the workshop agenda
will be devoted to discussion of pending research
questions, and directions for future work in this area.
Prospective participants are invited (but not
required) to submit position papers. The suggested
maximum length is four pages. The position papers will
be reviewed by the organizing committee, and accepted
papers will appear in the workshop proceedings. Some
of the accepted papers will be selected for informal
presentation at the workshop. Accepted papers that
were submitted electronically will be available via WWW
by early November. Authors of those position papers
found to be especially interesting or important may be
invited to prepare expanded versions of those papers,
which will then be submitted for publication in a book
or an appropriate journal.
Mail papers in either Postscript, ASCII or HTML to by October 15, 1995. We prefer
e-mail submissions, but authors who lack e-mail access
may send papers to Dr. Russell Turner, Department of
Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, University
of Maryland Baltimore County, Baltimore, MD 21228-5398
USA. Submissions should include the title, author(s),
author's affiliation, e-mail address, fax number and
postal address. In case of multiple authors,
please indicate which author is responsible for
