DHKV track theme:

The Humanities has enjoyed a renaissance in the last two decades. This has been largely facilitated by the acceptance of digital media as a tool for the critical analysis of scholarly works. This new field, the Digital Humanities, includes applied and theoretical use of digital media. Increasingly, large collections of data are being investigated using digital tools. These tools assist in visualising the information contained in ways that expose new meanings and interpretations of scholarly knowledge.

Our host, the International Information Visualisation Conference, provides a uniquely propitious environment for a Digital Humanities symposium. With other symposia spanning Information Visualisation Theory & Practice to Visualisation in Software Engineering, attendees of the Digital Humanities Knowledge Visualisation symposium are well placed to make serendipitous connections with technologists in relevant fields.
This symposium seeks short and long papers on original and unpublished work addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

* Culture and Heritage Knowledge Visualisation
* Art and Design
* Visualization techniques for text corpora
* Cartographics
* Virtual and built environments
* Interactive systems
* Infographic design and its associated process
* Data mining in the humanities
* Information design and modelling
* Social Networks
* Network graph visualisation of historical precedents
* Digital media enabled humanities research
* Digital media assisted linguistics research
* The digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital games, and related areas
