TextVis 2013 : The 3rd IEEE Workshop on Interactive Visual Text Analytics
at IEEE VIS 2013

Important Dates
Papers Due: August 31, 2013
Notification: September 14, 2013
Final Version: October 1, 2013
Workshop: October 14, 2013

Much research has been reported on visual text analytics for plain text
documents viewed in traditional analytic settings. In this workshop, we
would like to push the boundary of visual text analytics toward
heterogeneous textual data (text associated with other data types) and
ubiquitous text analytics. First, we would like to use the workshop to
collect various use cases about heterogeneous data and ubiquitous text
analytics. From the use cases, we hope to better understand the
requirements of heterogeneous textual data analysis from a task-driven
perspective. Although there is some work on visual analysis of
heterogeneous textual data, there is not a clear understanding of the
typical tasks that people would like to achieve in analyzing heterogeneous
textual data. Moreover, how will different tasks influence the design and
development of both text analytics and visualization technologies? We thus
would like to leverage the power of the crowd at the workshop to examine a
number of use cases and draft a taxonomy that characterizes the design
dimensions of the space and can also be used to guide the future design and
development. Second, based on the use cases, we would like to use this
workshop to examine how to best leverage state-of-the-art text analytics
and traditional data mining techniques in conjunction with novel
interactive visual analytics to address the challenges manifested by the
collected use cases.

Call for Participation
We invite 2-4 page position paper submissions that address topics related
to interactive visual analysis of heterogeneous textual data or visual
analysis of text data on mobile devices or other ubiquitous scenarios, with
a requirement that every submission must clearly state one or more concrete
use cases, including the tasks to be achieved, the two or more types of
data to be analyzed, and data analytic methods used. Topics of interest
include but are not limited to:

- Task taxonomy of analysis of heterogeneous textual data or ubiquitous
text analytics
- Visual metaphors for heterogeneous textual data or ubiquitous text
- Coordinated visualizations of textual and non-textual data
- Perception and cognition in heterogeneous data visualization or
ubiquitous text analytics
- Mobile visual text analytics and mobile visual interaction
- Systems, languages, and architectures for heterogeneous textual data
- Collaborative analysis of heterogeneous textual data
- Real-time visualization of streaming heterogeneous textual data
- Opinion summarization from heterogeneous textual data
- Visual event identification and prediction from heterogeneous textual
- Uncertainty in interactive heterogeneous textual data analysis or
ubiquitous text analytics
- Industry-specific applications of visual analysis of heterogeneous
textual data (e.g. Retail, Healthcare, Government, etc.)
- Studies and evaluation of heterogeneous textual data visualization
techniques, systems, metrics, and bench-marks
- Datasets and tasks for visual text analysis of heterogeneous textual data
