Visualization Meets AI


The task of data visualization generally involves a design step, which requires the knowledge of the data domain and visualization methods to do well. Because of the immense design space for optimization, It can take both novices and experts substantial effort to derive desired visualization results from data for exploration or communication. Following the resurgence of artificial intelligence technology in recent years, in the field of visualization, there is the growing interest and opportunity in applying AI to perform data transformation and to assist the generation of visualization, aiming to strike a balance between cost and quality. The use of visualization to enhance AI is the other active line of research. This workshop, held in conjunction with IEEE PacificVis 2020, aims at exploring this emerging area of research and practice by fostering communication between visualization researchers and practitioners. Attendees will be introduced to the latest and greatest research innovations in AI enhanced visualization as well as visualization enhanced AI, and also learn about further research opportunities. The workshop will be composed of invited and solicited talks along with a panel.



Accepted papers will appear in a special issue of the Journal of Visual Informatics with open access. Papers are to be submitted using PCS. There is no page limit, but authors are encouraged to submit a paper whose length matches its contribution, and the manuscript should be prepared according to the guide for authors given at Elsevier.
