InfoVis at VSS!

We hosted our first event on May 23, 2017: an informal VSS satellite meeting for vision science researchers to learn about and discuss the field of information visualization!

The meeting began with a presentation about what InfoVis research is like, and why cognitive psychologists might care about it. Next, research talks were given by Madison Elliott, Cindy Xiong, Christie Nothelfer, Danielle Albers-Szafir, and Zoya Bylinskii, who all conduct research at the intersection of visualization and vision science. The meeting concluded with a round table introduction, discussion, and contact/idea exchange. Hopefully this meeting was the start of many more collaborative events!

Talks:

  • Changing task demands limits feature based attention. Madison Elliott & Ron Rensink (University of British Columbia).
  • Curse of knowledge in visual data communication. Cindy Xiong & Steve Franconeri (Northwestern University).
  • Rapid feature-selection benefits from feature redundancy. Christie Nothelfer & Steve Franconeri (Northwestern University).
  • Designing for data and vision: ensembles, constancy, and color models. Danielle Albers Szafir (University of Colorado – Boulder).
  • How studying the perception of visualizations is like studying the perception of scenes. Zoya Bylinskii & Aude Oliva (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
