IEEE VIS for practitioners interested in human factors



  • Workshop - DECISIVe 2017: Dealing with Cognitive Biases in Visualizations - The workshop explores some of the ways in which cognitive biases impact user performance. Its goal is to share ideas about practical ways to reduce or overcome these potentially harmful effects, especially in adapting the tools developers design and build.
