CityVis Workshop 2022

Visualization as a tool for analysis, exploration and communication has become a driving force in the task of unravelling the complex urban fabrics that form our cities. Yet, there is a crucial need to bridge the gap between the flood of urban data and the capacity of decision makers to integrate that data into effective and informed decisions. The CityVis workshop wants to critically assess this notion and ask how data and data visualization can be used to serve and better understand or even organize urban processes, focusing on an explicitly “human-centric” perspective.

Underneath the smart city

The theme of the fourth CityVis workshop is challenging traditional smart city data visualizations. How can we include more diverse perspectives and qualities of cities in our visualisation work?

Researchers and practicioners are invited to submit abstracts which will undergo a double-blind peer review through the international program committee. All workshop contributors will be invited to extend their abstracts into short or full papers for a special issue of the KN Journal of Cartography and Geographic Information.
