Brief Description:
In many collaborative situations, multiple distributed users 
simultaneously interact with and analyze complex information while 
sharing their results with others. It is through such collaboration that 
multiple users bring their expertise to bear on a particular problem to 
analyze incomplete information and reach collaborative decisions. Such 
collaboration is far more effective when users collaborate by 
interacting with meaningful visualizations that accurately depict shared 
information. Visualizations must present information in a manner that is 
easily understood by individuals with different expertise and 
perspectives on the problem at hand. Users must be able to interact with 
the visualization to highlight or manipulate information in a natural 
way that is readily observed by other participants.

This workshop on Visualization and Collaboration – to be held as part of 
the 2012 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and 
Systems (CTS 2012) – will focus on visualization and its role in 
collaboration. The objective is to highlight key issues and solutions 
for interactive visualization in a collaborative environment. We invite 
original contributions from researchers and practitioners in academia, 
government, and industry in this emerging visualization specialty.

Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to):
- Collaborative visualization architectures, technologies, or algorithms
- Visualization for managing collaborative environments
- Unique challenges in collaborative visualization
- Collaborative visualization solutions and applications
- Web-based collaborative visualization
- Visualization in collaborative decision making and support
- Collaborative data analysis and visualization
- Visualization in Social Networks and Media
