BELIV’06 - AVI 2006 Workshop
BEyond time and errors: novel evaLuation methods for Information
Held in conjunction with *AVI Advanced Visual Interfaces* International
Working Conference
May, 23 2006 - Venice, ITALY


Controlled experiments remain the workhorse of evaluation but there is a
growing sense that information visualization systems need new methods of
evaluation, from longitudinal field studies, insight based evaluation
and other metrics adapted to the perceptual aspects of visualization as
well as the exploratory nature of discovery. We solicit position and
research papers discussing proposed new information visualization
evaluation methods e.g. new ways of conducting user studies, definition
and assessment of infovis effectiveness through the formal
characterization of perceptual and cognitive tasks and insights,
definition of quality criteria and metrics. Case study and survey papers
are also welcomed when clearly presenting general guidelines, practical
advices, and lessons learned.

Deadline for submissions:	March 12, 2006
Notification of acceptance:	March 27, 2006
Camera ready papers due:	April 24, 2006
Workshop:			May   23, 2006

We solicit position and research papers up to 6 pages (less is fine).
All the submissions should be formatted according to the guidelines used
for the papers of the main conference. Suitable templates can be
downloaded from: http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.
Submission should be either in PDF (preferred) or Word format and
uploaded to the review system accessible from the following url:
http://www.programchair.com/BELIV06/. For any questions contact Enrico
Bertini at: bertini at dis.uniroma1.it.

Accepted papers will be revised
after the workshop and published
in the ACM Digital Library

A possible outcome of the workshop is to organize a special issue on the
topic for the Information Visualization Journal.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
• Utility characterization and evaluation
• Quality criteria
• Metrics
• Insight characterization
• Synthetic data set generation
• Taxonomies of tasks
• Benchmark development and repositories
• Longitudinal case studies
• Adoption
