The “AK Peters Visualization [Book] Series” aims to capture new developments, and to summarize what is known over the whole spectrum of visualization by publishing in a broad range of formats. The series will contain books from all subfields of visualization, including visual analytics, information visualization, and scientific visualization, and will largely follow the calls of the major conferences such as VIS: techniques, algorithms, theoretical foundations and models, quantitative and qualitative evaluation, design studies, and applications.
IDSC Director of Visualization, Data Communication, and Information Design, Dr. Alberto Cairo will serve as Joint Series Editor with Tamara Munzner of the University of British Colombia, Vancouver, Canada.
The series, so far, has 6 titles:
