Recently, Stephen Few commented on the contents of the InfoVis 2006 conference from a refreshing real world and utility point of view on his blog: http://perceptualedge.com/blog/?p=10

I believe that every research project—certainly those that are awarded a spot in the InfoVis conference agenda—should be required to include the following two sections in the presentation:
- Why? Describe the problem that the project attempted to solve, not only abstractly, but also in concrete terms involving examples from the real world.
- Why still? Survey the other known attempts to solve this problem and describe what they lack that created the need for a better solution.
