9–14 NOVEMBER 2014
Welcome to VIS 2014 in Paris! The VIS acronym represents the
three main conferences appearing this week: IEEEVisual Analytics
Science and Technology (VAST), IEEE Information Visualization
(InfoVis), and the IEEE Scientific Visualization (SciVis). All the
conferences now run single track in parallel from Tuesday to
Friday. Additionally, VIS is hosting the IEEE Symposium on
Large-Scale Data Analysis and Visualization (LDAV) on Sunday
and Monday, as well as a diverse program of workshops and
tutorials at which you can learn about and develop skills in the
latest in VIS and contribute to VIS research efforts and agendas.
This year, VIS celebrates its 25th anniversary with several
special events in addition to its standard program. Scattered
throughout the week, you will also be able to explore the
Arts Program, Exhibit on Jacques Bertin, Doctoral Colloquium,
and a series of panels, posters, Meetups (previously known as
birds-of-a-feather—BOF), exhibitions, and a practitioner experiences track. It definitively promises to be an exciting and
stimulating week!
About Paris.................................................................................................3
We continue the recent tradition in which topical papers published during the last year in IEEE Transactions on Visualization
and Computer Graphics (TVCG) are presented during the conference. The presentations are now merged with the main
conference sessions according to the topic of the papers and
not as separate sessions. TVCG will publish all of the papers
from InfoVis and SciVis, and 35 papers from VAST in a special
December 2014 issue of the journal. In addition, this year, 21
VAST papers are presented at the conference level, so as to
increase the opportunity for presenting emerging work, results,
and applications of Visual Analytics.
This year, VIS features 8 workshops, 10 tutorials, and 6 panels,
and roughly 150 posters overall. The opening session for
the three conferences on Tuesday features keynote speaker
Alberto Cairo – author of ‘The Functional Art’ and director of
the Visualization Program at University of Miami Center for
Computational Science; the closing session on Friday features
capstone speaker Barbara Tversky – Professor of Psychology
Emerita at Stanford University and Professor of Psychology at
Columbia Teachers College. Each conference day begins with a
fast-forward session containing a brief 30-second preview of
every paper to be presented during that day.
As always, a number of other events will enrich the week.
Posters from all of the conferences will be on display and video
previews of work presented during the conference will be viewable on special displays. Wednesday evening will feature a
special poster viewing event and a VIS reception. The numerous breaks, various Compass lunch events to support the next
generation of visualization researchers by helping connect
beginning and advanced researchers, and evenings in the
lobby will provide many further opportunities for social and
collaborative interaction.
Welcome to Paris, thank you for coming, and have a great VIS!

European edition in the the conference’s 25-year history. Paris
is the capital of France, and attracts around 28 million
tourists per year, making it the world’s leading tourist
destination. The city is renowned for its 2000 years
of history, as well as for its spectacular monuments,
museums, theaters, restaurants, and cafés. The
public transportation system in Paris is also cheap,
efficient, and extensive, allowing you to visit the
city and region conveniently. The list of attractions is
endless---so please check with the Visitors Bureau of
Paris or ask student volunteers during the conference
for help finding the best attractions for you.
25th Anniversary Celebration
Bertin’s Exhibit
As we celebrate the 25th year of the IEEE VIS Event at IEEE VIS
2014 in Paris, we invite you to share your inspiring milestone
visualizations with our community.
We have already gathered initial content that we have collated
online. We thank many members of the IEEE VIS community for
sharing these contributions.
During IEEE VIS 2014, we will print many of these images and
produce a real and interactive timeline exhibit during the conference week. If you have video content, we also plan to show video
examples in the time line exhibit as well.
Please visit http://ieeevis.org/vis25timeline for more details.
Exhibition on Jacques Bertin
Exhibit chairs: Charles Perin, INRIA , Pierre Dragicevic, INRIA, JeanDaniel Fekete, INRIA
Located on Level 2, Studio IJ
Open from Tuesday–Thursday, 10:00 – 18:00
On the occasion of its 25th birthday and its unprecedented location in France, Vis 2014 will host an exhibit on Jacques Bertin.
Jacques Bertin was a French cartographer whose 1967 monograph Sémiologie Graphique (Semiology of Graphics) has had a
great influence on the Vis community. This exhibit will focus on
Jacques Bertin’s work that is less known by the community. It
will showcase unique documents on loan from the Archives de
France and the Archives Nationales, including his physical matrices and work from his colleagues conducted at the Laboratoire
de Cartographie, which he founded in 1954. The exhibition was
made possible with the support of Tableau Software.

Visualizing Electronic Health Record Data
Contributors: Catherine Plaisant, Silvia Miksch, Theresia
Gschwandtner, Sana Malik
NOTE: full day, afternoon session in another venue, see website.
Electronic Health Record (EHR) databases contain millions of
patient records including events such as diagnoses, test results,
or medication prescriptions. These records are an invaluable
data source for clinical research and improvement of clinical quality, as they provide longitudinal health information
about patient populations. The use of EHR databases could be
dramatically improved if easy-to-use interfaces allowed clinical researchers and quality improvement analysts to explore
complex patterns in order to build and test hypotheses regarding the benefits, risks, and appropriateness of treatments or
medication regimens. Novel strategies in information visualization and visual analytics are needed. The interest in this
topic is growing at very rapid pace and is very interdisciplinary by nature, both in term of field (medicine and computer
science) but also research environment (academic research
as well as industry and government agencies). Because of
the European location of the conference, we have a unique
opportunity to create bridges and explore new collaborations
between groups that would have never met otherwise.

DECISIVe: Dealing with Cognitive Biases in Visualisations
Contributors: Geoffrey Ellis, David Peebles, Donald Kretz,
Gaëlle Lortal
NOTE: full day, afternoon session in another venue, see website.
Our inherent reliance on mental shortcuts, or heuristics, sometimes results in deviations in judgment from what rational
decision models would predict. These deviations are known as
cognitive biases. Heuristics allow us to make “good enough”
decisions without expending all of our cognitive effort on
b Recommended by the Practitioner Experiences Track
the task, however, in critical decision environments, “good
enough” is often NOT good enough. Visualisation tools are
increasingly adept at making sense of complex data, but
researchers who study cognitive biases have come to realise
that the quality of decisions made with these tools are often
impaired because tool designers fail to address how heuristics
and biases operate in a human-computer interactive setting. l Workshop (8:30–12:10)

Towards An Open Visualization Literacy Testing Platform
Contributors: Sung-Hee Kim, Jeremy Boy, Sukwon Lee, Ji Soo Yi,
Niklas Elmqvist
NOTE: full day, afternoon session in another venue, see website.
We propose a hands-on workshop where participants will learn
about and discuss visualization literacy by actually designing
and evaluating questions for a visualization literacy measure.
Though the value of information visualization is becoming
apparent to a broad audience, visualization researchers often
acknowledge that people have different levels of understanding of visualization techniques. In other words, our understanding of how users interpret visualizations has not caught
up with design and technical developments, and even the
concept of visualization literacy is still debated. Different
domains of research, such as mathematics education, cognitive science, and psychology, have been approaching this
problem within their domain. We believe that researchers in
information visualization and visual analytics should lead the
effort in defining the concept, and in creating valid and practical measurement tools. l Workshop (8:30–12:10)

3DVis: Does 3D really make sense for Data Visualization?
NOTE: full day, afternoon session in another venue, see website.
Contributors: Thierry Duval, Pascale Kuntz, Jérôme Royan,
Wolfgang Stuerzlinger, Gilles Venturini
The aim of this workshop is to discuss 3D display and 3D
user interfaces for scientific and information visualization
and Visual Analytics. As such, it starts by analyzing the state
of the art in 3D visualization and associated interaction. We
also review how 3D displays and user interfaces match human
perceptual, cognitive and motor capabilities. We then go to
the heart of the 2D vs. 3D debate. On the one hand, 3D technologies provide additional options for display and interaction,
which broadens the space of potential solutions considerably.
Consequently, many 3D visualization approaches have been
implemented. The recent introduction of low-cost virtual and
augmented reality hardware further paves the way towards
a deeper exploration of the design space for 3D visualization.
Moreover, better consistency in terms of dimensions between
the visualization and interaction may also improve the immersion and navigation in huge amounts of data. On the other
hand, the experimental results from studies that investigate
the differences between 2D and 3D visualization interfaces
provide no real evidence for the claimed benefits of 3D technologies. Thus, the current body of literature provides at best
inconclusive guidance on the benefits of 3D approaches.
Moreover, a deep consideration of human abilities and capabilities identifies a potential mismatch with full 3D user
interfaces. Yet, there may be a bias in the evaluations, as the
prevalent visualization and interaction techniques in all areas
of visualization are based on non-immersive technologies.

Visualization for Predictive Analytics
Contributors: Enrico Bertini, Adam Perer, Ross Maciejewski,
Jimeng Sun
One of the surprising facts of much current visualization
research is that prediction does not often play a significant
role. Most visualization research seems to focus exclusively
on data analysis and presentation, with little support for predictive analytics and the numerous models researchers have
developed for this purpose. Upon reflection, this comes as
a surprise as many scientific endeavors and many business
problems are mostly concerned with prediction. Looking more
closely at the recent advancements (and tremendous popularity) of Data Science, one may recognize that the vast majority
of problems addressed involve some form of prediction and
modelling. Notable examples are: prediction of drug effectiveness in drug development, prediction of diseases in healthcare,
prediction of crime in city management.

Opening the Black Box of Interaction in Visualization
Contributor: Hans-Jörg Schulz, Tatiana von Landesberger,
Dominikus Baur
Interaction is a key ingredient of modern visualization and
visual analysis systems. Yet, so far interaction is perceived from
either of three different angles: interaction activities (e.g.,
visualization tasks/events), interaction architectures (e.g.,
model-view-controller), or interaction metaphors (e.g., direct
manipulation). This tutorial for beginning audiences aims
to bring these three perspectives on interaction together by
detailing the state-of-the-art for each and providing a comprehensive view on interaction.

VizSec: Visualization for Cyber Security
Contributors: Kirsten Whitley, Sophie Engle, Lane Harrison,
Fabian Fischer, Nicholas Prigent, John Goodall
The 11th Visualization for Cyber Security (VizSec) is a forum that
brings together researchers and practitioners from academia,
government, and industry to address the needs of the cyber
security community through new and insightful visualization
and analysis techniques. VizSec will provide an excellent venue
for fostering greater exchange and new collaborations on a
broad range of security- and privacy-related topics.
Important research problems often lie at the intersection
of disparate domains. Our focus is to explore effective, scalable visual interfaces for security domains, where visualization
may provide a distinct benefit, including computer forensics,
reverse engineering, insider threat detection, cryptography,
privacy, preventing ‘user assisted’ attacks, compliance management, wireless security, secure coding, and penetration
testing in addition to traditional network security. Human
time and attention are precious resources. We are particularly
interested in visualization and interaction techniques that
effectively capture human analyst insights so that further processing may be handled by machines, freeing the analyst for
other tasks. For example, a malware analyst might use a visualization system to analyze a new piece of malicious software
and then facilitate generating a signature for future machine
processing. When appropriate, research that incorporates multiple data sources, such as network packet captures, firewall
rule sets and logs, DNS logs, web server logs, and/or intrusion
detection system logs, is particularly desirable.

BELIV: Beyond Time And Errors: Novel Evaluation Methods For
Contributors: Heidi Lam, Petra Isenberg, Tobias Isenberg,
Michael Sedlmair
The BELIV workshop series is a bi-annual event focusing on
the challenges of evaluation in visualization. Visualization
has recently gained much relevance for its ability to cope with
complex data analysis tasks and communication. While the
overall use visualizations is accelerating, the growth of techniques for the evaluation of these systems has been slow.
To understand these complex behaviors, evaluation efforts
should be targeted at the component level, the system level,
and the work environment level. The commonly used evaluation metrics such as task time completion and number of
errors appear insufficient to quantify the quality of a visualization system; thus the name of the workshop: “beyond time
and errors ...”.

During complex sensemaking and analysis task, it can be valuable to maintain a history of the processes and transformations
involved - referred to as ‘provenance’ information. Provenance
information can be a resource for “reflection-in-action” during
analyses, for supporting planning and reframing of objectives
and scope. It can also be a resource after the event, supporting
the interpretation of claims, audit, accountability or training.
There has been considerable work on capturing and visualizing
b Recommended by the Practitioner Experiences Track
of ‘data provenance’, which focuses on data collection and
computation, and ‘analytic provenance’, which captures the
interactive data exploration process. However, there is limited
work of utilizing these provenance information to support sensemaking, in terms of improving its efficacy and avoid pitfalls
such as data quality issue and human bias.

Panelists: Philippe Quevauviller, Teresa de Martino, William
Wong, Daniel Keim, Brian Fisher
IEEE VIS comes to Europe for the first time in 25 years. In the
same year, the new framework program for research in the EU,
called Horizon 2020, had its first calls targeting a wide range
of topics related to ICT, including visualization. The breadth
of calls and sub-programs can be truly overwhelming, and it
is hard to get an overview of the opportunities for researchers in information visualization, visual analytics, and scientific
visualization. There is also the possibility to include partners
from outside the EU, called international collaboration in
Horizon 2020, which should be of interest for participants
of VIS beyond Europe. This panel aims to give an overview of
the current EU funding opportunities in visualization. Two EU
representatives from Brussels, Belgium, will present, who are
or were overlooking projects with a visualization and visual
analytics emphasis. They will introduce two areas of EU
funding in Horizon 2020: the specific security research unit,
and the broader, basic research-oriented FET area. In addition,
invited project coordinators of EU projects will give examples
for successful collaboration or potential pitfalls during projects. In addition to the panelists representatives of international funding agencies will give their views as part of the
discussion on international collaboration.

Challenges in Financial Visualization
Moderator: Richard Brath
Panelists: Lancelot Comrie, David Keller, Elaine Knuth,
Eugene Sorenson
Financial visualization has existed for more than 100 years.
Ongoing growth of financial markets increases the frequency,
complexity and scale of data while users need to discern meaningful insights for many different types of tasks and objectives.
This panel brings together four established practitioners from
the financial industry from the firms of Bloomberg, Fidelity
Investments, Morgan Stanley and Davenport Advisors and
who use visualization tools every day. Each works with a different type of financial firm (buy-side, sell-side, advisory,
information provider) bringing a unique perspective to their
challenges. This panel represents an opportunity for VisWeek
participants to learn more about the challenges of financial
visualizations; understand real-world constraints, tasks and
usecases; and identify new potential application areas.

IEEE Scientific Visualization Contest
Chairs: David Feng, Bernd Hentschel
Each year, the VisContest presents researchers from the vis
community an opportunity to transfer the latest developments
in visual data analysis to a challenging application scenario.
This year, the contest targets data from atmospheric
research that captures volcanic eruptions and their atmospheric aftermath. We challenge participants to create a comprehensive visualization of the provided data that enables
domain experts to gain a deeper understanding of the volcanic
eruption events and helps them better understand the consequences for atmosphere and climate.

Bridging the Gap: Translating Perception and Cognition
Expertise into Visualization Research and Practice
Moderator: Georges-Pierre Bonneau
Panelists: Rita Borgo, Brian Fisher, Michael Gleicher, Timo
Ropinski, Colin Ware
In principle, perceptual and cognitive science form an important foundation for visualization and visual analytics. However,
while some basic principles (e.g. color contrast, pre-attentive
popout) have had significant impact on visualization practice,
the application of the sciences of perception and cognition
has been slow. A simplistic view might expect that the visualization community should be able to mine the extensive
literature of perceptual and cognitive science for ideas to influence and improve our work. In practice, such direct translation seems rare. There are many potential causes of this. For
example, there may be differences in goals (understanding
people vs. making visualizations), differences in methodology
(reductionist empiricism vs. wanting realistic applications),
etc. In this panel, we propose to explore why the translation
of perceptual and cognitive science into visualization research
and practice is so challenging.

Moderator: Robert S. Laramee
Panelists: Chuck Hansen, Silvia Miksch, Klaus Mueller, Bernhard
Preim, Colin Ware
Most of us agree that visualization design is a critical aspect
of any visualization research. There are many different aspects
to the topic of visualization design including: data characteristics and type, data enhancement, visualization mapping, e.g.,
choice of shape, color, opacity, and texture etc. Another critical aspect is the spatial domain in which the final visualization
is presented. In general, 1, 2, or 3 spatial dimensions are used
when designing a visualization. The vast majority of visualizations in the literature reside in 2 or 3 spatial dimensions.
However, there are differing opinions as to what constitutes
an ideal spatial dimensionality when it comes to visualization
design. Some believe that 3D space is preferable since it may
convey more information than 2D. However, others believe
that 2D is preferable because it may result in less occlusion
and complexity.

Understanding and Conveying Events
Speaker: Barbara Tversky, Professor of Psychology Emerita
at Stanford University, Professor of Psychology at Columbia
Teachers College
The world presents us with an overwhelming continuous multi-media
flow of information to all the senses.
From that we carve discrete chunks,
events. Events can be analyzed as
kinds and as parts. Our research on
segmenting everyday events like
making a bed shows a confluence
of top-down (goal-completion) and
bottom-up (local maxima of information
change) features at event segment boundaries that allow inferences from one to the other. The flip side of
understanding events is communicating them, using a range
of linguistic diagrammatic, and pictorial devices. Analysis of
research and examples from history, diagrams, and comics will
illustrate ways to convey events visually.
Barbara Tversky is a cognitive scientist who has worked on
memory, categorization, spatial language and thinking, event
perception and cognition, diagrammatic reasoning, creativity, and gesture. She has enjoyed collaborating with computer
scientists, linguists, philosophers, engineers, educators, biologists, chemists, geographers, artists, and designers on a range
of projects. She is Professor of Psychology Emerita at Stanford
University and Professor of Psychology at Columbia Teachers
College. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts
