Working with Uncertainty Workshop
Tools, techniques and methodologies are needed in every facet of dealing with uncertainty from representation, quantification, propagation, and visualization. The domain of expertise and applications that have a stake in addressing uncertainty is not limited to the visualization community. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields who have a strong interest for the proper treatment of uncertainty. It will provide a venue for describing and identifying open problems, current best practices, and discussions on challenges and long term directions.
We are looking for contributions related to all aspects of working with uncertainty. Suggested topics are intentionally broad to solicit contributions from various communities and expertise. Examples include, but are not limited to:
- Representation of uncertainty
- Uncertainty quantification
- How uncertainty is propagated
- Reasoning about uncertainty
- Uncertainty visualization
- Perceptual and cognitive issues related to uncertainty
- Risk communication
- Decision making under uncertainty
- Applications involving uncertainty
Submissions can be about:
- Methods and techniques about how to handle uncertainty at different stages, or across multiple stages.
- Description of systems that incorporate uncertainty.
- Application problems and/or interesting research problems that require attention from the community.
- Experiences with working with uncertainty, road blocks that one may encounter, lessons learned from different domains/problems.
The submissions must be original research. However, they may include work in progress and preliminary results. Submitted papers and posters will be evaluated by their relevance to the workshop focus, novelty and scientific merit.
