 Analyzing text documents has become increasingly an important part of
decision making in large corporations, small businesses, and households.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and industry
practitioners interested in text visualization, text analytics, and visual
analytics, to define the emerging fields of visual text analytics, and to
discuss ideas, techniques, and applications to support decision making in
different domains.

We invite paper submissions that address any topic related to visual text
analytics and application domains especially how interactive visual text
analytics can facilitate decision making. Topics of interest include but
are not limited to:

 ·	Visual and interaction design for text analytics
 ·	Visual representation, structure, metaphors for text
 ·	Perception and cognition in text visualizations
 ·	Systems, languages, and architectures for text analytics
 ·	Methodologies, processes for visual text analysis
 ·	Collaborative analysis of text corpora
 ·	Real-time visualization of streaming text data
 ·	Visual text analytics in social media
 ·	Industry-specific applications of visual text analytics (e.g. Retail,
    Healthcare, Government, etc.)
 ·	Studies of analytic work on document collections
 ·	Evaluation of visualization techniques; Metrics and bench-marks
 ·	Datasets and tasks for visual text analytics to facilitate decision
 ·	Representations of uncertainty in text analytics

 We are looking for research and industry papers related to visual text
analytics with a focus on facilitating human decision making. Papers are
limited to 4 pages. A subset of the accepted papers will be invited for a
15 minute (plus 5 minutes for questions) oral presentation at the workshop.
All other accepted papers will be presented as posters during the poster
session. Papers must be formatted according to VisWeek format (see

 The program will also include a madness session at the beginning of the
workshop to allow anyone attending the workshop to briefly introduce
themselves, their work, and state their positions and goals related to the
scope of the workshop. If you are planning to attend the workshop you are
welcome to send an email to conference organizers to ensure a slot in the
madness session by Oct 10, 2011.
