Welcome to the new home of ASIS&T SIG VIS.
The mission of the Special Interest Group for Visualization, Image, and Sound (SIG VIS) is to promote the exchange, development, communication, and dissemination of information and research related to visual and graphic information among ASIS&T members and to the larger community of practitioners and scholars.
SIG VIS provides a forum for ASIS&T members to discuss, develop and promote issues and research involving graphic representations, audio and non-textual information retrieval, and information visualization. Such information includes, but is not limited to, text document images, multimedia, interactive systems, still and moving pictures with or without sound, geographic attributes, topology, and virtual representations of the visual world.
Founded at the beginning of the information age in 1937, ASIS&T has promoted the development and understanding of information science and documentation. Through its 8 decades it has reflected a rapidly changing landscape, embracing and promoting new advances in technology to improve all aspects of information collection, management, storage, access and learning.
