Call For Papers

VisGuides: 4th IEEE VIS Workshop on Visualization Guidelines – Visualization Guidelines in Research, Design, and Education
This year’s topic: Visualization Research in the Wild

16 (or 17) October 2022, Workshop at IEEE VIS, October, Oklahoma City, USA

VisGuides 2022 calls for submissions about visualization guidelines in research, design, and education. The ever-increasing global awareness, practice, and teaching of information and data visualization includes a growing audience of consumers and creators. Building on the success of prior editions of the VisGuides workshop in 2016, 2018, and 2020.

This year’s edition focuses on
• Visualization Research in the Wild and the roles guidelines play in it
• Implementing an actionable framework around creating, curating, and applying guidelines for the wider visualization and non-visualization community.

Submit your work and ideas as either a short paper, long paper, or a guideline report discussing a guideline, its empirical evidence, application, and limitations. Become part of a vibrant half-day workshop that will bring together an exciting program with papers and discussions on the future of guidelines in visualization.

This workshop also features an open call for being part of the program committee (PC) to provide an opportunity to advocate for guidelines in a broad range of topics. If you would like to get involved, contact bbach@ed.ac.uk.

The workshop will be held in a hybrid format. You can attend online or in person though we hope that you can join us in-person. Online sessions will be synchronous with the in-person workshop.

Topics and Scope

The IEEE VIS VisGuides workshop is a forum for constructive discussions around guidelines in visualization and how the visualization researchers and creators disseminate and discuss their designs. The understanding and operationalization of guidelines is important not only for academics, but also for practitioners alike, who are tasked to make design trade-offs, problem-solving, and justify decisions. Moreover, guidelines are essential for teaching and learning about visualization. Questions this workshop wants to discuss include:
• What visualization guidelines exist and how do we (as a scientific community) collect and disseminate them?
• How do we apply and discuss guidelines in daily-work practice, in design, in advising, and in teaching?
• What is the role of visualization knowledge and guidelines in the wild, i.e., outside the scientific community?
• How to scrutinize empirical knowledge and make a discussion around guidelines public?
• What are types of guidelines, guidance, and how do we formalize visualization knowledge?
• How can we systematize, rank and categorize guidelines in the wild?

Goals
• Illustrating the use of best practices and guidelines in the wild as seen from the VIS community and practitioners, through discussions among the presenters and the audience.Collecting, reflecting and discussing a survey of well-known guidelines from the presenters and the audience through interactive activities, examples, and submissions
• Constructing an open and democratic discussion about principles, guidelines, recommendations, based on the presented evidence (including examples of their uses and misuses), critique (including revision and improvement) and conditioning (i.e., education, training, and deployment) compiling the lessons learned from the usage of those guidelines
• Discussing ideas and proposals of feasible approaches towards the formalization of visualization guidelines, with an impact beyond the scientific visualization community. This is an important pointas more and more visualization designs are created outside the scientific community. The visualization community must reinforce the efforts to publicize their study results
• To raise questions about the ethical, practical, and technical implications of establishing guidelines for visualization. Broadening the discussion of guidelines to applications and educational contexts

Workshop Schedule (Preliminary)
• Keynote
• Paper presentations
• Group discussion (possible breakout groups)
• Collecting & curating guidelines
• Application in education
• Research in the wild
• Social dynamics and operationalization
• Wrap-up

Submission Info

This workshop features 3 types of submissions. Please carefully read the respective instructions. Topics of these submissions include, but are not limited to:
• Comparative analysis of several guidelines for visual representation, requirements, and gap analysis of principles and guidelines for one or more visualization tasks (or application domains)
• Evidence-based critique of a principle or a guideline
• Case studies of a principle in relation to a task, a visual design, and a group of users
• Proposal of a new principle or a guideline, or a major revision of an existing one
• Proposal of a mechanism for curating principles and guidelines
• Proposal of a framework for the critique of principles and guidelines
• Proposal of a mechanism for disseminating and deployment of established principles and guidelines
• Proposal of a mechanism for prioritising and ranking established principles and guidelines
• Discourse on a long-term sustainable mechanism for creation, curation, critique, and conditioning activities
• Discourse on the relationships and transformations between principles and guidelines and other theoretical aspects, such as taxonomies, conceptual frameworks and models, and quantitative laws, and so forth
