Call for papers: ReVISE'16 - Requirements for Visualizations in Systems Engineering

Workshop on the Requirements Engineering Conference RE'16 in Beijing, China, Sep 12-16, 2016, https://www.wi-inf.uni-due.de/ReVISE16

Submissions until: June 20, 2016 Notification to authors: July 8, 2016 Camera ready version: July 24, 2016 Workshop: Sept 13, 2016

Topics: Visual knowledge representations and data visualizations form a particular kind of information systems in their own right, which deserve a high degree of scientific interest. Information systems for visualization are, e. g., analytical diagrams embedded into user interfaces, model editors and domain-specific model visualizations, dashboards, and interactive info-graphics. These kinds of systems are characterized by specific functionalities that come with their own class of requirements.

Possible research directions for submissions to the workshop include, but are not restricted to:

  • How can information demands towards visualizations be expressed as part of a system engineering procedure?
  • How can it be methodically ensured that visualizations are understood unambiguously by different people?
  • How can appropriate visualization types for the support of specific system engineering tasks be systematically identified?
  • How do domain-specific software-development procedures look like in which visualizations are created as part of a model-driven visualization (MDV) process?
  • In which way do different cultural backgrounds of visualization users potentially influence the specification of requirements towards visualizations?

Additionally, if your paper addresses one or more of the following topics, please consider to submit it:

  • Analysis of the quality and efficacy of visualizations
  • Notations and symbols in conceptual models
  • Design concepts for interactive visualizations
  • Evaluation and improvement of existing visualization techniques
  • Cognitive aspects of communicating knowledge via visualizations
  • Use of models and visual notations in practice
  • Innovative interface concepts for user interaction with software
  • Software-supported creation and use of information graphics
  • Tool support for creating interactive visualizations
  • Use of visualization in business process modeling
  • Use of visualizations in collaborative settings
  • Teaching and training of visualization design and use

Workshop Format: The 1-day workshop will consist of a keynote, paper presentations for full and short papers, as well as a demo-oriented session where recent applications and prototypes displaying novel ideas in visualization research are showcased. Each demo will be introduced in a short presentation, and then demonstrated live with the running software.

Submission: The following types of submissions will be accepted:

  • Full papers, up to 10 pages
  • Short papers (work in progress, research agendas, industry reports), up to 6 pages
  • Demo papers (demos, prototypes), 2 to 4 pages

Please upload your submission at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=revise16. Use the IEEE formatting style at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html to format your work.

Each submission will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee. Based on the reviews and review scores the organizing committee will make a selection of papers to be accepted for publication. The workshop proceedings are planned to be published in the IEEE digital library.

Submissions for the demo track do not need to fulfill the same degree of scientific justification as paper submissions, and do not have to explicitly address individual research questions. In turn, demo submissions are required to be highly innovative and distinctively creative compared to the state-of-the-art of existing approaches and products.
