<About the workshop>
Data visualization has been a big interest among interaction designers
thanks to the advances of visualization authoring tools. With the
tools including programming languages, visualization generation
websites, and open source libraries, interaction designers can easily
create data visualization harnessing their prototyping skills and
aesthetic sensibility. However, there still exist some technical and
methodological challenges for interaction designers in jumping into
the scene.
At the workshop, we will discuss new roles of designers in this
interdisciplinary field, and the ways of using and enhancing
visualization tools to support designers. We encourage experts in the
intersection of data visualization and interaction design to share
their experiences in designing interactive visualizations in both
industry and academic contexts.
