Call For Papers

Goal of the workshop

The goal of the DATAVIEW 2011workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners in the diverse fields related to the integration, interaction and visualization of data to explore the feasibility of using and combining different approaches to create effective data-centric Web-service based applications.

 

Context and motivation

Recent years witnessed a proliferation of data providers available on the Web, especially in the form of Web services. This trend is associated with the increasing availability of a wide spectrum of high-level data integration tools - such as mash-up platforms - that enabled users to develop novel applications and business scenario. As the richness and value of data increases, applications must provide users with visualizations and interaction paradigms that leverage properties such as the underlying data relationships, source type, provenance, and quality. This is a major change of paradigm with respect to traditional documents integration and navigation, as the interaction with data object repositories proved to be a challenging task for application developers.

At this purpose, cross fertilization between different disciplines is mandatory: existing approaches for Web service engineering, integration and composition should be merged with data visualization and interaction methodologies at the purpose of identifying the best interaction and visualization paradigms on data-centric Web Services.

 

Topics of interest

 Topics of interest are related to the context of data-centric Web Services and include, but are not limited to:

  • Data-centric Web Service integration
  • Visualization of integrated heterogeneous data on the Web
  • Interfaces for Web-scale and large-scale data search and exploration
  • Linked Data visualization and exploration
  • Taxonomies and ontologies for data visualization
  • Lightweight (semantic) metadata or knowledge integration
  • Conceptual models for data visualization and exploration
  • Data visualization for next-generation mobile Web-services
  • Studies on quality, usability, effectiveness of data visualization techniques
  • Innovative uses of tag clouds
  • Ambient information displays
  • Data visualization for large screens and interactive tablets
  • Augmented reality and cross-media interfaces
  • Visualizations for multimodal interaction
  • Tools for Web data visualizations
  • Relevant Web Service Applications: Search, Semantic Web, Social Web and Web 2.0, Adaptive and personalized Web applications, SaaS, Business Intelligence, Data Warehouse, Enterprise 2.0

 

 Submission Guidelines 

Papers should explore open research problems, as well as provide advances in the areas of the workshop's core topics. Papers submitted to DATAVIEW 2011 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three PC members.
 

The workshop will accept:

  •     Full research and experience papers (maximum length: 8 pages)
  •     Short Papers (maximum length: 5 pages)
  •     Position Statements (maximum length: 3 pages)

Papers need to comply to CEUR-WS format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and are to be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=). All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the international program committee. Paper acceptance will be based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation. At least one author of an accepted paper must register and participate in the workshop. Registration is subject to the terms, conditions and procedure of the main ECOWS conference to be found on their website (http://ecows2011.inf.usi.ch/).
