EuroVA 2019

Workshop

EuroVA 2019 is the tenth international EuroVis Workshop on Visual Analytics.

It will take place on Monday, June 3, 2019 in Porto, Portugal and is co-located with EuroVis 2019 (https://www.eurovis.org).

Visual Analytics is a problem-solving and sense-making technology that integrates analytical computations, visual representations, and interaction. It includes the analysis of complex (massive, dynamic, uncertain, …) data and information for gaining understanding, building knowledge, and inferring insight. Visual Analytics aims at a synergistic collaboration of humans and computers mediated through interactive visual interfaces. As such, Visual Analytics is an interdisciplinary field of research, including aspects of visualization, human-computer interaction, statistics and mathematics, data management and knowledge representation, data analysis and machine learning, cognitive and perceptual sciences, and more.

EuroVA 2019 is the premier workshop to present and discuss fresh ideas on new methods and theories, novel applications, designs, and studies on the use of Visual Analytics methods and systems. The workshop will accept a wide range of contributions within the broad area of Visual Analytics, including novel techniques, systems, applications, evaluation studies and methods, and theoretical foundations, as well as fresh viewpoints on future challenges and critical reflections.

Proceedings will be published in EG Digital Library. As a new development this year, selected papers will be invited to submit an extended paper to a special issue of ACM TiiS.

Call for Submissions

EuroVA, a premiere workshop on Visual Analytics, is celebrating its 10th anniversary!

The workshop seeks to attract innovative, fresh and creative ideas with a high potential of becoming significant contributions to the Visual Analytics community.

We welcome a wide range of contributions within the broad area of Visual Analytics, including research papers presenting novel techniques or systems, evaluation studies and methods, and theoretical foundations, application papers, that describe success stories of Visual Analytics in practice, as well as fresh position papers expressing novel and potentially controversial viewpoints on Visual Analytics.

Topics

The workshop covers a broad range of topics in the area of Visual Analytics including, but not limited to:

  • User aspects in Visual Analytics
  • Scalable Visual Analytics
  • Visual Analytics for machine learning & machine learning for Visual Analytics
  • Decision making through Visual Analytics
  • Visual Analytics of streaming data
  • Uncertainty-aware Visual Analytics
  • Visual Analytics in Data Science
  • Interaction techniques and novel data representations for data analysis
  • Visual analysis of analytical processes and provenance
  • Infrastructures, systems, frameworks  and architectures for Visual Analytics
  • Data management, data provenance, and data uncertainty
  • Evaluation of Visual Analytics
  • Methodologic and theoretical foundations of Visual Analytics
  • Visual Analytics applications, such as sports, medicine, biology, finance, security, telecommunication, travel, …

Of special interest this year are also papers relating to interpretability and explainability issues in the use of algorithms within decision making processes and a number of specific topics in this area could be, but not limited to:

  • Role of interactive visualisation in interpretable and explainable Machine Learning
  • Consideration of human factors in making decisions with Machine Learning algorithms
  • Facilitating Algorithmic Transparency and Accountability through Visual Analytics
  • Novel forms of representation and interaction for supporting non-experts in interpreting complex algorithmic results
  • Visual analytics for interactive, informed model building
  • Uncertainty-aware visual analytics for the consideration of inherent uncertainty in data and algorithms
