The 3rd Workshop on Data Systems for Interactive Analysis (DSIA 2018), Co-located with VIS 2018, Berlin


October 21, 2018 in Berlin, Germany. In conjunction with IEEE VIS 2018.

Submission Deadline: July 17, 2018


The goal of DSIA is to foster innovative research at the intersection of databases, machine learning, and interactive visualization.

In this workshop, we will explore the idea that the next generation of database, machine learning, and interactive visualization systems should not be designed in isolation. For example, machine learning techniques might recommend improved data transformation and visual encoding decisions. Or, database query optimizers might take advantage of perceptual constraints, while prefetching methods reduce latency by modeling likely interactions.

This workshop seeks to jump start cross-pollination between these fields. The program will be split between invited talks from researchers in these communities, and speculative, ongoing work that straddles the areas. Please see http://www.interactive-analysis.org/ for links to the program from previous years.


This workshop will focus on interactive systems: techniques, methods, architecture, systems that enable the user to interactively explore and analyze large amounts of data in the back end with little or no latency. We encourage late-breaking work, research in progress, and position papers in interactive analysis, broadly construed. For example, topics of interest to the workshop include (but are not limited to):

  • design of database architectures for interactive analysis
  • novel database applications for interactive analysis
  • novel database techniques based on perceptual constraints and

human-centered design

  • evaluation of database systems for interactive analysis
  • identify unique characteristics of databases for supporting vis
  • communication protocols between front and back ends
  • techniques for data storage, retrieval, compression, transformation,

sampling, and streaming

  • techniques for metadata generation
  • front-end architectures that exploit these novel back-end capabilities

We are interested, more generally, in the questions that arise at the intersection of these systems.


Papers are 4 to 6 pages excluding references in IEEE VIS paper format. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and authors can choose to include their papers in the IEEE archive. In addition to their presentation, authors have the option to give a demo of their system or tool.
