Submission Details
Instructions for Authors

You are invited to submit original papers to the 4th International Symposium on Knowledge Domain Visualization (KDViz). The KDViz Symposium series aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of disciplines to address theories, methodologies, techniques, applications, evaluations and case studies in relation to KDViz. The symposium also aims to promote the cross-disciplinary awareness between disciplines such as information visualization and information science. For the purpose of this symposium, a knowledge domain is broadly defined as a dynamic, evolving intellectual structure of a given subject matter. Knowledge domain visualization aims to reveal the dynamics of a knowledge domain by utilizing a wide variety of techniques involving visual thinking, visual discovery, visual exploration, and visual analytics.


The symposium will seek original papers concerning, but not limited to, the following topics. Submitted papers must clearly demonstrate a connection between information visualization and the study of a knowledge domain:

  • Theories
  • Qualitative and Quantitative Methodologies
  • Algorithms
  • Case Studies
  • Citation Analysis, Co-Citation Analysis, Author Co-Citation Analysis
  • Domain Analysis and Modeling
  • Historical, Sociological, or Philosophical Approaches
  • Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Representation, and Knowledge Diffusion
  • Scientific Networks, Social Networks
  • Scientific Paradigms, Scientific Revolutions, Scientific Debates
  • Scientometrics
  • Dynamic Models, Trend Detection
  • Empirical Studies, Ethnographical Studies of Science
  • Evaluative Studies
  • Exploratory Analysis
  • Network Visualization, Link Analysis
