Call for Participation:
Workshop on Information Visualization and Visual Analytics in Business
November 2014, Paris, France
(half day, part of IEEE VIS 2014)

Enterprises across all industries are inundated by an accelerating 
tsunami of business data. Converting these data and insights into better 
business outcomes is a pressing and strategic challenge for many 
managers, decision makers, and executives. While there is a growing 
interest in business analytics, advanced information visualization and 
visual analytic tools have lagged behind. This is in part explained by 
the plethora and complexity of design and implementation challenges 
presented by diverse business users, data, and contexts. This workshop 
aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in in 
presenting, exploring, and understanding complex business issues through 
visualization and visual analytics.

We will welcome submissions on a variety of topics, including:
- Real-world experiences with designing, building, deploying and 
evaluating new information visualization and visual analytic systems
- Case studies describing success (and failure) of applying 
visualization to business contexts
- Domain-specific enterprise applications of visualization and visual 
analytics (i.e. healthcare, manufacturing, energy, media, 
transportation, finance, etc.)
- Review and evaluative papers discussing or comparing current tools and 
toolchains; integration with other enterprise support tools (i.e. 
modeling, simulation, etc.)

We encourage submissions of short papers (up to 4 pages) presenting 
novel, thought-provoking ideas and promising (preliminary) results. 
Papers must conform with a "double-blind review" process, such that 
authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and 
reviewers should not know the names of the authors. Please prepare your 
paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors. The following 
templates are meant to aid you in preparing a draft of your submission: 
LaTeX (TAR) 
LaTeX (ZIP) 
Word (ZIP)
