Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The huge amount of data which are being continuously captured today through pervasive smart environments needs to be effectively transformed into useful and timely information, which can be used by individuals and organizations to gain personal advantages, as well as to address societal needs. Information is recognized as a major source of benefit for those who can properly create and manage it. Therefore, it is crucial to keep the focus on the user when developing information visualization systems based on the powerful computing and networking technologies available today.

Human-centered information visualization may leverage well-established principles of human-computer interaction to generate information visualization environments capable of addressing the real needs of individuals who will adopt such environments for specific purposes (e.g., communication, scientific analyses, decision support, etc.). However, new research challenges are arising when facing the potential of modern technologies.  

This Special Issue seeks to report on high-quality original and unpublished work on research and innovative practices adopting human-centered approaches to information visualization. We solicit papers on theory, models, tools, and case studies for next-generation human-centered information visualization systems, aimed at improving user experience with such systems.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Accessibility challenges in information visualization;
  • Cooperative/multimodal interaction with large displays;
  • Designing for situation awareness;
  • Explainable AI visualization tools and techniques;
  • Human-centered information visualization for emergency management;
  • Human-centered information visualization for financial services;
  • Human-centered information visualization for healthcare management;
  • Human-centered information visualization for the Internet of Things;
  • Usability assessment methods;
  • User experience design for information visualization.
