AVI 2022 Workshop on Audio-Visual Analytics

Call for Papers

Location: Frascati, Rome, Italy
Date: June 7, 2022

About the Workshop

In their daily lives, people use more than one sense to perceive and interpret their environment. Therefore, we think designing audio-visual interfaces will help human analysts understand their data even better in the future. The 3rd Workshop on Audio-Visual Analytics continues building a community (AVAC) of researchers interested in combining information visualization and sonification. The first two workshops were held interactively at the Audio Mostly 2021 and the IEEE VIS 2021 conferences. The third edition at AVI 2022 will be the first one with the possibility to submit short papers or position papers.

The workshop is part of the International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI).

Call for Participation and Submission

The workshop encourages the submission of short papers or position papers addressing the workshop theme and the list of topics below. Submitted papers should discuss both visual and auditory representations of data to be interpreted by humans. Ideally, the contribution can be categorized to one of the following topics: Theory, Tools, Evaluation, Design, and Accessibility. 

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Short papers describe work in progress with respect to the workshop focus.
  • Position papers are problem discussions or statements describing the author’s relevant experience and ideas in regards to methods and methodologies for visualization and sonification research, and in particular the focus topic of the workshop.

Position papers and short papers should be 2-4 pages long with additional pages for references only and prepared according to two-column CEUR-ART template:

Please submit your paper at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wava22.

The workshop program committee will review the submitted papers, and select papers for presentation at the workshop based on their quality and relevance to the workshop topics. Position papers will be selected according to their importance and relevance for the workshop topics, and how well they will fit the planned discussions.

First AVAC Meet-Up

We are inviting you to our first informal AVAC Meet-Up on the 25th of January at 6 pm (Vienna) via Zoom.

The Audio-Visual-Analytics Community (AVAC) is a young international community, interested in the combination of information visualization and sonification. The AVAC Meet-Up is a format we want to establish as a regular virtual meeting for our young community, to discuss ideas and projects of our members. We aim for one meeting every second month, lasting about 1,5 or 2 hours each.

Call for Papers - ISon 2022

We would like to share the Call for Papers for the Interactive Sonification workshop (ISon), taking place in September 2022. Interactive Sonification is the specialized research topic concerned with the use of sound to portray data, but where there is a person at the heart of an interactive control loop. The main theme of ISon 2022 is Psychoacoustics in the Loop and will highlight how these two fields of research can benefit from one another.

IEEE VIS Workshop next week

Next Monday, our 2nd Workshop on Audio-Visual Analytics will be hosted at IEEE VIS 2021, the premier forum for advances in visualization and visual analytics.
