Robert Kosara of the visualization criticism blog Eager Eyes, Nathan Yau from the statistics visualization blog FlowingData, and myself, are organizing a workshop at VisWeek 2009 (Atlantic City, NJ, October 11-16). The workshop, titled "Putting Visualization on the Web", is meant to start a discussion about the presence, or the lack of presence (?), of visualization research and practice online.
We are looking for short (1 page) position statements to find out which questions participants are interested in, and to spur discussions. The following list is meant to get you to think about visualization on the web, but there are certainly a lot more topics that could be covered.
- Do you have a website or blog?
- What do you post there? How often?
- If not, why not? What is holding you back?
- Do you feel that InfoVis is represented well? What about SciVis? Or Visual Analytics?
- Is the focus of visualization websites the right one? What else should be covered?
- Who should blog? Would you like to see more senior visualization people online?
- What about other media than blogs, like forums, Twitter, YouTube, etc?
Deadline for submission is July 17, 2009. For those unable to attend, you can always express your thoughts at the comment section below.
