Dear colleagues--- Please consider submitting a paper to the Interactive Visual Analytics for Knowledge Integration and Decision Intelligence ( Decision Analytics and Service Science Track, HICSS 56) by June 15, 2022 to be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Maui January 3-6, 2023.
Interactive Visual Analytics for Knowledge Integration and Decision Intelligence supports human decision making through interaction with data and statistical and machine learning processes, with applications in a broad range of situations where human expertise must be brought to bear on problems characterized by massive datasets and data that are uncertain in fact, relevance, location in space and position in time. In partnership with organizations in defence, health care, and business, visual analytics research methods combining laboratory studies, cognitive ethnography, and field experiments have aided the design of information systems for decision making about injuries to children, multiomic precision health, radiological diagnosis, and VR for conflict zone operations.
Submissions are encouraged that focus on the core issues of theory and methods for visualization, analytics, knowledge integration and decision intelligence in organizations. Case studies of applications of these methods to new analytic and decision making tasks in science and technology, public health, business intelligence, financial analysis, social sciences, and other domains are particularly welcome. Submissions may include studies of visual analytics and decision support in the context of an organization (e.g., communication between analysts and policy-makers), perceptual and cognitive aspects of the analytic task, Interactive Machine Learning, and collaborative analysis using visual information systems. Additionally, submissions may include understandable, trustable AI as well as human-guided AI to round out the problem-solving process. Emphasis will be given to submissions that use visual analytics for social change discovery, analysis, communication, and focus on mixed-initiative human/AI analysis.
This proposal builds upon our successful HICSS-47, HICSS-48, HICSS-49, HICSS-50, HICSS-51, HICSS-52, HICSS-53 and HICSS-54 +HICSS-55 minitracks on visual analytics for decision support and our earlier minitracks on visual analytics, mobile computing, and digital media at scale. It seeks to define analytical methods and technologies that use interactive visualization to meet challenges posed by data, platforms, and applications for decision making and risk-based decision making:
Analysis of multi-perspective knowledge integration, synthesis and engineering in organizations.
Use of interactive visualization and visual analytics in digital economies
Visual analytics and visualization in "wicked" problem solving in organizations
Analysis of datasets of varying size and complexity from archives and real-time streams
Collaborative visual analysis and operational coordination within and across organizations.
Interactive and visual risk-based decision making
Interactive machine learning methods
Managing response time of complex analytical tasks
Effective deployment and case studies of success from deployed visualization and analytics experiences
Visualization and analytics for data-driven policy making and decision support
Issues and challenges in evaluation of visual decision making
Mixed-initiative analysis methods for decision making
Cognitive and social science aspects of visual decision-making environments
For HICSS 2023 we extend our focus to multidisciplinary collaboration among researcher from a variety of research perspectives. Authors are encouraged to bring the lens of their own background and expertise to focus on the analytics of the data itself and coordination of multiple levels of analysis, decision-making and operations to the design and evaluation of effective presentations for stakeholders. We invite computational, cognitive, and organizational perspectives on advanced data processing and interactive visualization for analysis and decision-making across a range of human endeavors. We also invite participation from researchers who are looking at scaling issues and multiscale issues, whether these scales refer to the time of decision making, the form-factor and operational constraints of mobile devices, the number of decision makers or the more traditional notion of multiscale simulation and real-world scales of data. We are particularly interested in approaches that combine computational and interactive analytics in "mixed initiative" or Interactive Machine Learning systems, decision support in the context of an organization (e.g. communication between analysts and policy-makers), perceptual and cognitive aspects of the analytic task, and collaborative analysis using visual information systems.
