Visualization researchers need to develop and adapt to today’s new devices and tomorrow’s interface technology. Today, people interact with visual depictions mainly through a mouse and, gradually, by touch. Tomorrow, they will be touching, grasping, feeling, hearing, smelling, and even tasting data.
This theme explores the concept of Immersive, multisensory, post-WIMP visualization and investigates how information visualization can employ different display and presentation technologies, such as head-mounted displays, projection systems, wearables, tabletop displays and haptic interfaces.
