The 2nd Workshop on Data Systems for Interactive Analysis (DSIA 2017)


Monday, October 1st or 2nd, 2017. Phoenix, AZ. In conjunction with IEEE VIS

*** Submission Deadline: July 31st, 2017 ***

In its first edition in Chicago, DSIA drew more than 150 attendees for an
exciting session with a keynote talk by Joe Hellerstein (UC Berkeley,
Trifacta) and publications from both the visualization and data management
communities. We’re looking forward to a vibrant program and discussion this

DSIA brings together researchers at the intersection of databases, machine
learning, and interactive visualization. These three areas have important
things to say to each other. Modern data visualization depends on the
cutting edge of both database and machine learning research: database
researchers are exploring techniques for storing and querying massive
amounts of data; machine learning techniques provide ways to discover
unexpected patterns and to automate and scale well-defined analysis
procedures. This workshop explores the idea that the next generation of
database, machine learning, and interactive visualization systems should
not be designed in isolation. For example, machine learning techniques
might recommend improved data transformation and visual encoding decisions.
Or, database query optimizers might take advantage of perceptual
constraints, while prefetching methods reduce latency by modeling likely
interactions. This workshop seeks to increase cross-pollination between
these fields.


This workshop will focus on interactive systems: techniques, methods,
architecture, systems that enable the user to interactively explore and
analyze large amounts of data in the back end with little or no latency. We
encourage late-breaking work, research in progress, and position papers in
interactive analysis, broadly construed. For example, topics of interest to
the workshop include (but are not limited to):

* design of database architectures for interactive analysis

* novel database applications for interactive analysis

* novel database techniques based on perceptual constraints and
human-centered design

* evaluation of database systems for interactive analysis

* identify unique characteristics of database for supporting vis

* communication protocols between front and back ends

* techniques for data storage, retrieval, compression, transformation,
sampling, and streaming

* techniques for metadata generation

* front-end architectures that exploit these novel back-end capabilities

We are interested, more generally, in the questions that arise at the
*intersection* of these systems.


Submitted papers should be formatted according to TVCG guidelines. (
http://junctionpublishing.org/vgtc/Tasks/camera_tvcg.html) Papers are
limited to 4 pages plus 1 additional page for references. Papers should be
submitted through the Precision Conference System (
http://precisionconference.com/~vgtc, under "New Submissions" and "VIS
Workshops 2017"). Accepted submissions will be archived at IEEE Xplore.
