Special issue of the International Journal of HCI:

Empirical Evaluation of Information Visualisations
Call For Papers:

Special Issue Overview:
Throughout 1990s, we have witnessed the ever-growing interest and
fast-advancing technologies in the field of information visualisation. This
field has captured the imagination of researchers and practitioners from a
wide range of disciplines all over the world. More and more sophisticated,
wide-ranging information visualisation techniques are finding their way into
our life in the information society.
The widespread proliferation of information visualisation techniques has
also highlighted the need for principles and methodologies for empirical
evaluation of these techniques. Sorely needed are improved methods in areas
such as task analysis, usability evaluation, and usage analysis, with
special emphasis on information visualisation-intrinsic user interfaces.
This special issue aims to provide a timely and unifying forum for
researchers and practitioners to tackle some of the fundamental and
practical issues concerning empirical evaluation of information
visualisation. The guest editors would like to solicit original papers on
topics related to this theme. Some examples of possible topics are as
*       requirements engineering for information visualisation-intensive
*       task analysis with 2D/3D spatial user interfaces
*       effects of visual user interfaces
*       surveys and meta-analyses of usability studies in information
*       user-centred design for visualisation, animation, and virtual
*       learning and knowledge management with information visualisation
*       individual differences in information visualisation usage
*       cognitive abilities and behavioural analysis
*       user preference and satisfaction
*       collaborative work with information visualisation
*       usage patterns, strategies, and heuristics
*       usability studies
*       evaluation methodologies and theories for information visualisation
Authors are encouraged to contact guest editors to discuss the suitability
of their topics to the special issue. Please consult the Instruction for
Authors at the IJHCI website for more information
