Workshop on Aesthetic Data Visualization @NordiCHI2012

2nd Call for Papers

Workshop on Aesthetic Data Visualization: Tools & Challenges for
Interaction Designers at NordiCHI 2012
October 14th, 2012, Copenhagen, Denmark

Data visualization has been a big interest among interaction designers
thanks to the advances of visualization authoring tools. With the tools
including programming languages, visualization generation websites, and
open source libraries, interaction designers can easily create data
visualization harnessing their prototyping skills and aesthetic
sensibility. However, there still exist some technical and
methodological challenges for interaction designers in jumping into the scene.

At the workshop, we will discuss new roles of designers in this
interdisciplinary field, and the ways of using and enhancing
visualization tools to support designers. We encourage experts in the intersection of
data visualization and interaction design to share their experiences in
designing interactive visualizations in both industry and academic
