All the workshop papers will be published and indexed in IEEE Xplore. Besides the papers are indexed in many global indexes including DBLP.


First workshop on Visual Mobile Interfaces

The current visual technology looks at elegant and virutal interfaces to make the visual and mobile devices scalable, effective and interactive.
The technology has introduced high profile smartphones, palmtops and PDAs with a quick obsolete rate. There is a need to understand the complex systems and interconnections so that the future developments can be managed effectively. At the same researchers can work to find more ubiquitous and pervasive computer applications for the existing visual and mobile technology.

Realizing the potential of the topic, a one day workshop is organized during the Sixth International Conference on Digital Information Management. (ICDIM 2011).

We look for innovative methodologically incremental papers including design, architecture, methods and experimental ones for the proposed workshop.

We invite submissions on the topics listed below, but not limited to-

Adaptive web user interfaces
Animated Interfaces
High-volume transient data interfaces
Collaborative interfaces
Ontology based interaction
Information Visualization
Interactive Interfaces
Interface Evaluation
Geographical IS Interfaces
Visualization of linked and aggregated data
Mobile Interaction Design
Multimodal Interfaces
Perceptual Interfaces
Visual Analytics Interfaces
Visual Data Mining
Visual Interface Design
Web-Based Interaction


Submissions should follow the IEEE template and normally limited to 6 pages. However, two additional pages will be permitted. Submit your paper at (with a note that it is a workshop paper)

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, published by IEEE Technology Management Council and indexed in Xplore. Besides, the authors of selected papers will also be invited to submit a revised version of their paper for in the following journals.

1. Journal of Digital Information Management (JDIM)
2. Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing
3. International Journal of Information Technology and Web Engineering

A Special Session at ICDIM 2011 on
Pattern Analysis and Intelligent Systems

La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia
14-16 September, 2011


Dr. James Liu, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, P.R. China
Dr. Honghua Dai, Deakin University, Victoria, Australia
Dr. Hongwei Wang, Tongji University, Shanghai, P.R. China

Pattern Analysis aims to classify or describe groups of measurements or observations. It is an important technology within the area of intelligent systems, often used in data preprocessing and decision making. Demand for intelligent systems of pattern recognition also surges. The design of such a system involves essentially some aspects like: (1) Data acquisition and preprocessing; (2) Data representation; (3) Decision making, etc.
The intention of this session is to highlight technologies and recent results that provide useful insights to pattern analysis and intelligent system. We welcome novel algorithms, creative ideas, the state-of-art technologies, useful tools, and well justified processes that help address the related problems in various domain applications.

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers representing original, previously unpublished work. Submissions are solicited that should address an interdisciplinary audience, but may deal with issues at the cutting edge of research in Pattern Analysis and Intelligent Systems, including (but not limited to) the following:

  1. Artificial Intelligent techniques including Neural Networks; Genetic Algorithms; Case-based reasoning, etc.
  2. Chaos in complex domain
  3. Clustering/classification/ranking/identification
  4. Data mining/information mining/pattern mining
  5. Decision support / intelligent decision making
  6. Document analysis and recognition
  7. Feature extraction and representations
  8. Intelligent (hybrid) systems like Fuzzy systems; Chaos systems; Rough-based Systems, etc.
  9. Pattern recognition
  10. Reinforcement/incremental learning


About ICDIM 2011
Following the successful earlier conferences at Bangalore (2006), Lyon (2007), London (2008), Michigan (2009) and Thunder Bay (2010) the sixth event is being organized at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia in 2011 September. The International Conference on Digital Information Management is a multidisciplinary conference on digital information management, science and technology. The principal aim of this conference is to bring people in academia, research laboratories and industry together, and offer a collaborative platform to address the emerging issues and solutions in digital information science and technology. The ICDIM intends to bridge the gap between different areas of digital information management, science and technology. This forum will address a large number of themes and issues. The conference will feature original research and industrial papers on the theory, design and implementation of digital information systems, as well as demonstrations, tutorials, workshops and industrial presentations.

The accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings indexed in IEEE Xplore. Modified version of the selected papers will appear in the special issues of peer reviewed and indexed journals including:
1. Journal of Digital Information Management (JDIM)
2. Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing (JIM)
3. International Journal of Information Technology and Web Engineering (IJITWE)
