Research in HCI and visualization has produced numerous forms of visualization and methods for interacting with visualizations of large data sets. There is long-standing design advice for both static and dynamic visualization, and many user studies of particular visualization and interaction methods. However, systematic understanding of the interaction issues with visualization and the human cognitive and perceptual processes involved is perhaps less well developed.

This workshop seeks to survey and expand our understanding of the cognitive and perceptual issues of interactive visualization and visual analytics and to bring together researchers interested in these issues.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • models of visualization and interaction
  • perceptual aspects in visualization
  • distributed cognition and visualization
  • social, organizational and collaborative aspects
  • display technology
  • interactive mobile visualization
  • usability and evaluation aspects

This workshop is jointly organized by IFIP WG 13.7 on Human-Computer Interaction and Visualization and the EU VISMASTER Coordinated Action on Visual Analytics. The aim is both to foster the growth of an international community interested in the relationship between human-computer interaction and visualization, and also to feed into a research and development agenda for this area. Those interested in participating at the workshop should submit a position paper. At least one author of accepted papers needs to register for the workshop and for the conference itself. Detailed information as well as the deadline for submitting a position paper is specified in the local web page of this workshop:
