CFP: ReVISE'16 - Requirements for Visualizations in Systems Engineering

Call for papers: ReVISE'16 - Requirements for Visualizations in Systems

Workshop on the Requirements Engineering Conference RE'16 in Beijing,

Submissions until: June 20, 2016
Notification to authors: July 8, 2016
Camera ready version: July 24, 2016
Workshop: Sept 13, 2016

Visual knowledge representations and data visualizations form a
particular kind of information systems in their own right, which deserve
a high degree of scientific interest. Information systems for
visualization are, e. g., analytical diagrams embedded into user
interfaces, model editors and domain-specific model visualizations,
dashboards, and interactive info-graphics. These kinds of systems are
characterized by specific functionalities that come with their own class
of requirements.

Possible research directions for submissions to the workshop include,
but are not restricted to:
- How can information demands towards visualizations be expressed as
part of a system engineering procedure?
- How can it be methodically ensured that visualizations are understood
unambiguously by different people?
- How can appropriate visualization types for the support of specific
system engineering tasks be systematically identified?
- How do domain-specific software-development procedures look like in
which visualizations are created as part of a model-driven visualization
(MDV) process?
- In which way do different cultural backgrounds of visualization users
potentially influence the specification of requirements towards

Additionally, if your paper addresses one or more of the following
topics, please consider to submit it:
- Analysis of the quality and efficacy of visualizations
- Notations and symbols in conceptual models
- Design concepts for interactive visualizations
- Evaluation and improvement of existing visualization techniques
- Cognitive aspects of communicating knowledge via visualizations
- Use of models and visual notations in practice
- Innovative interface concepts for user interaction with software
- Software-supported creation and use of information graphics
- Tool support for creating interactive visualizations
- Use of visualization in business process modeling
- Use of visualizations in collaborative settings
- Teaching and training of visualization design and use

Workshop Format:
The 1-day workshop will consist of a keynote, paper presentations for
full and short papers, as well as a demo-oriented session where recent
applications and prototypes displaying novel ideas in visualization
research are showcased. Each demo will be introduced in a short
presentation, and then demonstrated live with the running software.

The following types of submissions will be accepted:
- Full papers, up to 10 pages
- Short papers (work in progress, research agendas, industry reports),
up to 6 pages
- Demo papers (demos, prototypes), 2 to 4 pages

Please upload your submission at
formatting style at
to format your work.

Each submission will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 members of the
program committee. Based on the reviews and review scores the organizing
committee will make a selection of papers to be accepted for
publication. The workshop proceedings are planned to be published in the
IEEE digital library.

Submissions for the demo track do not need to fulfill the same degree of
scientific justification as paper submissions, and do not have to
explicitly address individual research questions. In turn, demo
submissions are required to be highly innovative and distinctively
creative compared to the state-of-the-art of existing approaches and
