Workshop in short

Visualization has different purposes, from representing complex structures or processes to allowing intuitive interaction with data or models. It also supports the aesthetics and enhances the user experience. The current smart device paradigm (i.e., smartphones and tablets) brings new challenges to mobile environments, as it mainly focuses on information utilization rather than information creation. In this context, visualization can play an important role for the interaction with these devices and successful execution of the user’s required tasks. This requires not only an intuitive collaboration between the interaction/UX designers and the visualization/HCI experts, but also needs a focusing on novel visualization approaches and techniques. In DIViS 2014 workshop, we will discuss different issues and limitations regarding designing and implementing interactive visualization for smart devices, as well as how to overcome these limits through novel approaches and techniques.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit contributions including problem statements, technical solutions, experience reports, planned work and vision papers. The submitted papers should be 4 to 8 pages long using SIGCHI Extended Abstract Format. Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair. All submitted papers will be reviewed by a program committee of experts. The selection of papers will be based on workshop relevance, academic rigor, innovation, industrial applicability, and quality of writing as well as the suitability to trigger discussions.
