Visualization has become a core component of any decision or risk analysis pipeline, and tools for creating visualizations are quickly becoming more and more accessible. In addition, the visual literacy of the general public has been increasing due to the pervasiveness of visualizations in everyday life. As the appetite for decision making tools grows, so does the need to convey error, confidence, missing, or conflicting data visually. However, practices around uncertainty visualization remain domain-specific, rooted in convention, and in many instances, absent entirely.
The goal of this special issue is to build a foundation of accessible, practical knowledge that practitioners and researchers alike can rely on in addressing challenges related to uncertainty in visualizations. We seek high-quality papers that highlight challenges, elucidate solutions, and provide guidelines for handling uncertainty.
Topics of interest include:
Uncertainty visualization algorithms
Novel encodings of uncertainty for high dimensional data
Uncertainty visualization algorithms for ML and ML for uncertainty visualization
Role of uncertainty visualization in decision making
Ethical concerns for inclusion of uncertainty
Effectiveness and efficiency of uncertainty visualization techniques
Uncertainty awareness, communication, and trust
Uncertainty visualization software
HCI and design with uncertainty
Visual expressions of uncertainty quantifications and propagation
Application case studies using uncertainty visualization
Perceptual issues involving uncertainty and decision making
