BELIV’06 - AVI 2006 Workshop
----------------------------
BEyond time and errors: novel evaLuation methods for Information Visualization
Held in conjunction with *AVI Advanced Visual Interfaces* International
Working Conference
May, 23 2006 - Venice, ITALY


WORKSHOP WEBSITE
http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/~beliv06


DESCRIPTION
Controlled experiments remain the workhorse of evaluation but there is a
growing sense that information visualization systems need new methods of
evaluation, from longitudinal field studies, insight based evaluation and
other metrics adapted to the perceptual aspects of visualization as well as
the exploratory nature of discovery. We solicit position and research papers
discussing proposed new information visualization evaluation methods e.g.
new ways of conducting user studies, definition and assessment of infovis
effectiveness through the formal characterization of perceptual and
cognitive tasks and insights, definition of quality criteria and metrics.
Case study and survey papers are also welcomed when clearly presenting
general guidelines, practical advices, and lessons learned.

Notification of acceptance: March 27, 2006
