Workshop Deadline Extended for A Personal Perspective on Visualization and Visual Analytics
NEW position paper submission deadline: March 9, 2014

We solicit papers for the PVA 2014 Workshop at DIS 2014, June 21st - 25th, Vancouver, BC, Canada

For each and every one of us as individuals, "big data" impinges on our personal lives as well as our professional lives. This includes our social networks, our expanding photo collections, and our intentions to become more green. Application of Visualization and Visual Analytics research to our personal context offers substantial opportunity to help individuals gain insight and knowledge about themselves and their communities, ranging from health and fitness information, to music listening histories, to records of their interactions with others through social media. However, designing tools to support the analysis of data in ones non-professional life brings a unique set of research and design challenges.

Personal Visualization (PV) involves the design of interactive visual data representations for use in a personal context. Personal Visual Analytics (PVA) is the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by visual representations used within a personal context. Personal context implies a non-professional situation, where people may have different goals, priorities, role expectations, environments, or time and resource budgets than in professional aspects of their lives. PV & PVA aim to empower individuals in their everyday lives to develop insights and discover knowledge relevant to their personal lives.

PV & PVA 2014 Workshop
Organizers: Sheelagh Carpendale, Melanie Tory, and Tony Tang
In this workshop we will identify and explore research directions and design criteria for PV & PVA. Our goal is to call research attention to PV & PVA, to engage the design community in this timely and growing field, and to establish a community and common vision for researchers and practitioners working in this space.

We solicit position papers describing interesting application areas for Personal Visualization and Personal Visual Analytics, the design of tools for PV & PVA applications, or experiences and opinions on fundamental issues important to the design, development, and success of PV & PVA tools. We welcome papers from both commercial and academic sources; from researchers as well as practitioners. Best papers will be invited to submit to the July/Aug 2015 IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications Special Issue on Personal Visualization and Personal Visual Analytics.
