Panel: SciVis, InfoVis – bridging the community divide?!


Scientific Visualization (SciVis) and Information Visualization (InfoVis) are well-established and often used terms in the research field of visualization. But instead of intuitively illustrating two research fields – with disjunctive goals, challenges, and approaches, which they are not –, this terminology of SciVis vs. InfoVis rather represents a manifested community divide: there are SciVis researchers and there are InfoVis researchers (and there are only a few who appear on both sides), there are SciVis conferences/journals and there are InfoVis conferences/journals, etc.
