Call For Papers

1st International Workshop on User-Adaptive Visualization – WUAV 2013
held in conjunction with UMAP 2013, in Rome, Italy

Recent advances in visualization research have shown that individual user needs, abilities, and preferences can have a significant impact on visualization effectiveness. It is therefore important to investigate visualization techniques that support each user by adapting to such individual differences, both in terms of stable (long-term) user traits (e.g. perceptual speed, personality), as well as transitory (short-term) states (e.g. attention, current task, evolving expertise). To this end, we invite participation in the 1st International Workshop on User-Adaptive Visualization, held in conjunction with UMAP 2013 ( The goal of this workshop is to build the foundations for a new research community specifically focused on this novel and promising topic of user-adaptive visualizations. In particular, it aims to bring together researchers from the areas of visualization (including InfoVis, SciVis and Visual Analytics), UMAP, HCI, and cognitive/perceptual psychology, in order to share and discuss multidisciplinary knowledge relating to user-adaptive visualization research. For a sample list of previous work on User-Adaptive Visualization, please visit the complementary reference page at
This full-day workshop will focus on the following four questions: 1) what individual user differences should be considered for adaptation, 2) when is adaptive support appropriate and/or necessary, 3) how to adapt, i.e. what techniques to use and at what level of intrusiveness, and 4) how to evaluate. For full details on the workshop focus, please visit the workshop website at

We encourage submissions from diverse backgrounds, including visualization (encompassing InfoVis, SciVis and Visual Analytics), UMAP, HCI, and cognitive/perceptual psychology. We invite papers describing more developed ideas and methods, submitted via long papers (max. 6 pages), as well as novel work-in-progress, submitted via short papers (max. 3 pages). Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, and ability to promote discussion. Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings and published on the CEUR proceedings site. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop. For full details on the submission format and procedure, please visit the workshop website at
