Workshop on evaluation and beyond – methodological approaches for Visualization 2020

We invite contributions to BELIV 2020, the international forum to broadly discuss research methods in visualization.

Our discussions span from novel and not-yet fully established evaluation methods for visualization tools and techniques, to methods that more generally establish the validity and scope of acquired visualisation knowledge. BELIV supports contributions and discussions from the rich spectrum of visualisation researchers, embracing the varied ways that researchers self-identify with respect to the main conference tracks at VIS. Complementary to the broad scope of BELIV and its general commitment to research methods, BELIV 2020 will include a timely focus topic: From a Distance: Research practices during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. See the Call for Papers for more details.

Workshop on Data Visualization Activities to Facilitate Learning, Reflecting – Monday Oct. 26, 2020

This workshop focuses on data-visualization activities, especially methods and challenges for teaching and engaging with data visualization concepts, knowledge, and practices.


For example, sketching aids designers to consider alternative ideas; manipulating tokens help students conceptualize quantities for data visualization; user interviews and discussions help developers understand requirements. Workshops, classes, or collaborations with domain experts, often include hands-on data visualization activities that involve analog or digital tools and materials and more or less well defined protocols. Recent years have seen the emergence of such data visualization activities in different contexts, including education, visualization design, activism, self-reflection, and interdisciplinary collaboration. However, the broad range of contexts and target audiences that Data-Vis activities have been applied to makes it difficult to collect and identify commonalities and build knowledge in a systematic way. Thus, the goals of this workshop are i) start building an understanding and to synthesize protocols and materials used to lead data vis activities, ii) to bring together researchers, practitioners, and educators from within and outside of the visualization community, iii) brainstorm, design, experience, and try novel activities, and to iv) discuss issues around goals, methods, audiences, materials, and evaluation for teaching data visualization.
