Call For Papers

PacificVAST 2019 (23rd April, 2019, Bangkok) CALL FOR PAPERS

PacificVAST 2019 is an international workshop co-located with IEEE PacificVis 2019.
The workshop is held on April 23rd 2019, the first day of the symposium.

In PacificVAST, participants share their state-of-the-art research results and
fresh perspectives on visual analytics. Visual analytics is a discipline
concerned with science and technology for analytical reasoning supported by
interactive visual interfaces. Most papers presented in PacificVAST differ from other
visualization papers in that they harmoniously integrate interactive visual interfaces
with analytical techniques from statistics, data mining, or machine learning fields
to help analyze overwhelming amounts of disparate, conflicting,
and dynamic information.

All aspects of visual analytics are covered in PacificVAST including,
but not limited to, the following topics:

1、The science of analytical reasoning

- Visually enabled methods to support (collaborative) analytic reasoning
about complex and dynamic problems
- Scalable visual analytic techniques

2、Visual representations and interaction techniques

- Theories and techniques of visual representations based on cognitive
and perceptual principles that can be deployed through engineered,
reusable components
- Novel visual paradigms that support the (collaborative) analytical
reasoning process
- Theories and techniques of user interactions that support the analytical
reasoning process

3、Data representations, transformations, and integrations

- Theory and practice for transforming data into new scalable representations
that faithfully represent the content of the underlying data
- Methods to synthesize multivariate information from different sources
into a unified data representation
- Methods and principles for representing data quality, reliability, and
certainty measures throughout the data transformation and analysis process

4、Techniques, case studies, and systems for production, presentation,
and dissemination of analysis results

- Methodology and tools that enable the capture of the analytic assessment,
decision recommendations, and first responder actions into
information packages
- Technologies, case studies, and systems that enable analysts
to communicate what they know through the use of appropriate
visual metaphor and accepted principles of reasoning and
graphic representation
- Techniques and tools that enable effective use of limited, mobile forms of
technologies to support situation assessment by first responders

5、Methodologies and benchmarks for evaluating visual analytics techniques and systems

- Infrastructure to facilitate evaluation of new visual analytics technologies
- Ecologically valid evaluation methods for visual analytics tools

For fostering a stronger visual analytics community in the Asia-Pacific region,
all accepted papers will be published in a special issue of the
Elsevier Journal of Visual Informatics( on the day of the workshop.
