Submission Deadline: February 05, 2012

This workshop is being run in Cooperation with ACM, IEEE, and IFIP, as part of The 2012 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2012).

This workshop on Visualization and Collaboration – to be held as part of the 2012 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2012) – will focus on visualization and its role in collaboration. The objective is to highlight key issues and solutions for interactive visualization in a collaborative environment. We invite original contributions from researchers and practitioners in academia, government, and industry in this emerging visualization specialty.

In many collaborative situations, multiple distributed users simultaneously interact with and analyze complex information while sharing their results with others. It is through such collaboration that multiple users bring their expertise to bear on a particular problem to analyze incomplete information and reach collaborative decisions. Such collaboration is far more effective when users collaborate by interacting with meaningful visualizations that accurately depict shared information. Visualizations must present information in a manner that is easily understood by individuals with different expertise and perspectives on the problem at hand. Users must be able to interact with the visualization to highlight or manipulate information in a natural way that is readily observed by other participants.

Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Collaborative visualization architectures, technologies, or algorithms
  • Visualization for managing collaborative environments
  • Unique challenges in collaborative visualization
  • Collaborative visualization solutions and applications
  • Web-based collaborative visualization
  • Visualization in collaborative decision making and support
  • Collaborative data analysis and visualization
  • Visualization in Social Networks and Media
