Organizers EuroVA organizers at eurova.org
Thu Feb 14 17:11:28 CET 2019

Dear colleagues,

Please find below the call for papers for EuroVA 2019 - EuroVis Workshop on
Visual Analytics. We are celebrating the 10th anniversary of EuroVA!! The
deadline is less than a month away, and we highlight that this year
selected EuroVA papers will be invited to extend their work for a special
issue of ACM Transactions on Interactive Intelligent Systems (ACM TiiS)
following the event.
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

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

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,
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.

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

   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

   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 visualization in interpretable and explainable
   Machine Learning

   Consideration of human factors in making decisions with Machine Learning

   Facilitating Algorithmic Transparency and Accountability through Visual

   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
