EuroVA 2015

We welcome submissions to EuroVA 2015, taking place in Cagliari, Sardinia May 25-26, 2015. Submission deadline is Wednesday February 18th 2015.

EuroVA 2015 (www.eurova.org) is the sixth international Eurovis workshop on visual analytics held in Europe and continues the successes of the previous editions, held in Bordeaux, Bergen, Vienna, Leipzig and Swansea.

Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by interactive visual techniques, which requires interdisciplinary science integrating techniques from visualization and computer graphics, statistics and mathematics, data management and knowledge representation, data analysis and machine learning, cognitive and perceptual sciences, and more.

The workshop will accept a range of paper types, including technique, system, application, evaluation and theory papers in the area of Visual Analytics. One of our goals this year is to promote and advance the combination and integration of visualization and analytics methods for the purpose of problem solving in a variety of application domains including engineering, business, public policy, biology and medicine, security, etc. Henceforth we are arranging a special issue on “Visual Analytic Applications”, planned for publication in Information Visualization, Sage. Selected best papers of this workshop will be invited to submit a longer version of their work to this forthcoming special issue.

EuroVA will be held on May 25-26, 2015 in Cagliari Sardinia, as a workshop of the annual EuroVis 2015 Conference. Submitted papers will be evaluated by the international program committee. The EuroVA 2015 program will include a keynote talk and short paper presentations from authors of accepted papers.

TOPICS of interest include but are not limited to:

* Visual representations and interaction techniques
* Visual analysis processes and workflows
* Data management and knowledge representation
* Visual analytics data provenance, and management of analytic processes
* Mathematical foundations of visual analytics
* Data analysis and machine learning
* Cognitive and perceptual aspects of visual analytics
* Infrastructure
* Collaborative visual analytics
* Analytical reasoning, human analytic discourse, sensemaking
* Evaluation of Visual Analytics systems, techniques or processes
* Applications, as far as they are strictly related to visual analytics.
