2nd International Workshop on User-Adaptive Visualization Interfaces - WUAVI 2014
held in conjunction with UMAP 2014 in Aalborg, Denmark 7-11 July 2014

This workshop follows up on two previous workshops: WUAV 2013, a workshop held during UMAP 2013, that focused on user-adaptive visualizations, and Many People, Many Eyes, a workshop held at CHI 2013 on the influences of visual perception on user interface design. This year’s workshop aims to extend the scope of these two workshops by looking at how to provide adaptive support that can increase user performance and satisfaction with other interfaces that have strong visual components, such as infographics and interactive websites. We will call these interfaces visualization interfaces, whereby the term visualization encompass graphical elements such as illustrations, colorful metaphors, charts and infographics. The goal of this workshop is to continue to build the foundations for a new research community specifically focused on this novel and promising topic of user-adaptive visualization interfaces. It aims to bring together researchers from the areas of visualization, UMAP, HCI, accessibility and cognitive/perceptual psychology, in order to share and discuss multidisciplinary knowledge relating to research on user-adaptive visualization interfaces. The core research questions follow those targeted at WUAV 2013, but are expanded to cover a greater diversity of visualization interfaces: 1) what individual user differences should be considered for adaptation that can support effective and satisfying visual processing 2) when is this 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 adaptations. Given the expanded scope of this year’s workshop, an overarching new objective will be to begin exploring potential answers to the above questions with an eye to generalizing across different types of visualization interfaces. 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, accessibility, and cognitive/perceptual psychology. Other specialists who are interested in applications based on novel visualization interfaces, e.g., web or game designers, industrial solutions or applications for education and entertainment, are very welcome to contribute. 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). For non-academic submissions, we invite short experience reports (max. 3 pages) reflecting on the process of developing or applying visualization interfaces. All submission must adhere to the Springer LNCS format and must be made through the WUAVI 2014 EasyConference website. 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
