Visual analytics (VA) is the science of analytical reasoning facilitated
by interactive visual interfaces. Assessing the effectiveness of visual
analytics technology is challenging because VA tools often combine
several disparate components, both low and high level, integrated in
complex interactive systems used by analysts. These components include
analytical reasoning, visual representations, computer human
interactions, data representations and algorithms, tools for
collaboration and especially for communicating the results of their
usage. Users' activities can be exploratory and can take place over
days, weeks or months. Users may not follow a predefined or even linear
work flow. Users may work alone or in groups. To understand these
complex behaviors, evaluation efforts can be targeted at the component
level, the system level, and the work environment level, and require
realistic data and tasks.  Traditional evaluation metrics such as task
time completion, number of errors, or recall and precision are
insufficient to quantify the utility of visual analytics tools, and new
research is needed to improve our visual analytics evaluation
methodology.

 

We invite submissions in all areas related to the Evaluation of Visual
Analytics. Topics include, but are not limited to

 

* Evaluation metrics and tools

* Insight characterization and measures

* Benchmark task and data set development

* Methodology of longitudinal case studies

* Characterization of the challenges of VA evaluation

* Survey of existing VA evaluation methodologies

* Lessons learned from specific evaluation activities

* Automation of evaluation

* Synthetic data set generation and usage

 

Articles should be no more than 10 magazine pages, where a page is 750
words and an image counts as 200 words. Citations should consist of the
12 most relevant references. Background can be provided for non-expert
readers in sidebars. Color images can be interspersed through the
article and should be limited to a total of 10. Visit CG&A style and
length guidelines at http://www.computer.org/cga/author.html.

If your article is expanded from a workshop or conference paper: please
provide in your cover letter please a citation to the Original
publication, then briefly summarize (50 words or less) what new material
you have added for this submission (at least 25%). This must include new
results or insights, not just additional description.

 

Please submit your paper using the online manuscript submission service
at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cs-ieee. When uploading your paper,
please select the appropriate special issue title under the category
"Manuscript Type." Also include complete contact information for all
authors and coauthors in the submission. If you have any questions about
submitting your article, please contact Manuscript Assistant Alkenia
Winston at [log in to unmask]
