Alle interessierten Personen sind herzlich eingeladen!


An Introduction to Collaborative Information Visualization It is becoming increasingly necessary to join the domain expertise and data analysis skills of several people to inform decisions about the content of a dataset of interest. Visualization tools and novel display devices such as wall-sized displays or tabletops can help teams to view information together but several obstacles remain to actually make these systems effective collaboration tools. In particular, many of these challenges require an understanding of the socio-technical nature of collaboration around information in order to be effectively addressed. In this talk, I will first give a high-level introduction to the research field of computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), including in particular how it addresses questions that are socio-technical in nature. In the second half of the talk, I will specifically focus on the intersection of CSCW and Information Visualization and highlight several ways in which people have tried to understand social interactions around visualization technology and novel display devices to inform the design of visual data analysis tools for teams. The talk can be held in German or English - depending on the requirements of the audience. The slides will be presented in English.
