             abstract = "Combining distinct visual metaphors has been the mechanism adopted 
                         by several systems to enable the simultaneous visualization of 
                         multiple levels of information in a single layout. However, 
                         providing a meaningful layout while avoiding visual clutter is 
                         still a challenge. In this work we combine word clouds and a 
                         rigid-body simulation engine into an intuitive visualization tool 
                         that allows a user to visualize and interact with the content of 
                         document collections using a single overlap-free layout. The 
                         proposed force scheme ensures that neighboring documents are kept 
                         close to each other during and after layout change. Each group of 
                         neighboring documents formed on the layout generates a word cloud. 
                         A multi-seeded procedure guarantees a harmonious arrangement of 
                         distinct word clouds in visual space. The visual metaphor employs 
                         disks to represent document instances where the size of each disk 
                         defines the importance of the document in the collection. To keep 
                         the visualization clean and intuitive, only the most relevant 
                         documents are depicted as disks while the remaining ones are 
                         either displayed as smaller glyphs to help convey density 
                         information or simply removed from the layout. Hidden instances 
                         are moved together with its neighbors during rigid-body 
                         simulation, should they become visible later, but are not 
                         processed individually. This shadow movement avoids excess 
                         calculations by the force-based scheme, thus ensuring scalability 
                         and interactivity.",
