Machine Learning from User Interaction for Visualization and Analytics

An IEEE VIS 2018 workshop

Workshop Summary

Date and Location: October 22, 2018, 9:00am - 12:40 pm, in Paris Room at IEEE VIS

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from across the VIS community – SciVis, InfoVis, and VAST – to share their knowledge and build collaborations at the intersection of the Machine Learning and Visualization fields, with a focus on learning from user interaction. Our intention in this workshop is to pull expertise from across all fields of VIS in order to generate open discussion about how we currently learn from user interaction and where we can go with future research in this area. We hope to foster discussion regarding systems, interaction models, and interaction techniques across fields within the VIS community, rather than the current state of having these discussions independently contained within the SciVis/InfoVis/VAST fields. Further, we hope to collaboratively create a research agenda that explores the future of machine learning with user interaction based on the discussion during the workshop.

Schedule

Session 1: Applications (9:00am - 10:40am)

Session 2: Research Agenda (11:00am - 12:40pm)

WORKSHOP TOPICS

The topic of the workshop will focus on issues and opportunities related to the use of machine learning to learn from user interaction in the course of data visualization and analysis. Specifically, we will focus on research questions including:

SUBMISSIONS

We have two submission tracks: for papers and for posters.

Papers

We invite research and position papers between 5 and 10 pages in length (NOT including references). All submissions must be formatted according to the VGTC conference style template (i.e., NOT the journal style template that full papers use). Papers are to be submitted online through the Precision Conference System at the Machine Learning from User Interaction for Visualization and Analytics track. All papers accepted for presentation at the workshop will be published on IEEE Xplore and linked from the workshop website. All papers should contain full author names and affiliations. If applicable, a link to a short video (up to 5 min. in length) may also be submitted. The papers will be juried by the organizers and selected external reviewers and will be chosen according to relevance, quality, and likelihood that they will stimulate and contribute to the discussion. At least one author of each accepted paper needs to register for the conference (even if only for the workshop). Registration information will be available on the IEEE VIS website.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: June 30, 2018 July 15, 2018

Author notification: July 31, 2018 August 6, 2018

Camera-ready deadline: August 20, 2018

Speaker Schedule Available: September 15, 2018

Workshop: October 22, 2018, 9:00 AM

Posters

We invite both late-breaking work and contributions in this area from other research domains to submit extended abstracts between 2 and 4 pages in length (NOT including references). All submissions must be formatted according to the VGTC conference style template (i.e., NOT the journal style template that full papers use). Extended abstracts are to be submitted via email to our GMail account: learningfromusersworkshop@gmail.com. All abstracts accepted for presentation at the workshop will be published on IEEE Xplore and linked from the workshop website. All abstracts should contain full author names and affiliations. If applicable, a link to a short video (up to 5 min. in length) may also be submitted. The abstracts will be juried by the organizers and selected external reviewers and will be chosen according to relevance, quality, and likelihood that they will stimulate and contribute to the discussion. At least one author of each accepted poster needs to register for the conference (even if only for the workshop). Registration information will be available on the IEEE VIS website.
