Visualization Technology for Conference Pages
Thursday, March 3, 2011
The new version of ACM’s Digital Library integrates visualization technology that captures details of the more than 150 international conferences and symposia associated with ACM. Among the added features are multidimensional geographic maps that display the expanding global reach of ACM events with pop-up flags that link to individual conference data.
The redesigned format also lists conferences alphabetically and chronologically, and links to published proceedings of each event as well as authors, acceptance rates, and downloads of presented papers, tables of contents, abstracts, source material, and a history of the conference.
The full conference listing on the map page links to individual conference pages where tag clouds show aggregated views of subject areas from each conference. The tags allow readers to see the scope of each conference, and to explore links to subject search results. In addition, extensive publication and web archives along with information on presenter affiliations, conference sponsors, and ACM award winners round out the history of each conference.
The ACM DL’s extensive collection of knowledge charts the evolution of computing as a science and a profession. Its newly integrated features, functionality, and content constitute a critical resource for computing professionals who drive innovation in the digital age.ACM Digital Library
