Conclusion and Future steps


Stream 1 Themes:

What is needed to integrate design principles within application domains?

What is needed to support the transition (even if just as a starting point) in such a way that empirical validation can help better define the field of applicability of each principle?

Is there a distinction between principles and guidelines for exploration/analysis vs. presentation/communication?

Stream 2 Themes:

What are the common pitfalls and mis-applications of guidelines and principles?

When to use heuristics & proxies versus criteria & metrics?

How do we evaluate, compare and prioritise guidelines for VIS?

Stream 3 Themes:

How can we define theories that are actionable and understandable for other visualization researchers?

How to come up with unique theories when VIS has so many different application areas?

What does bring guidlines together and organize them in higher-level theories?

Stream 4 Themes:

Which direction do you envisage as a possible way forward (e.g. type of platform wiki vs. repository vs... ) to support accessibility, dissemnation and maintainance?

Which set of criteria/feature should be of primary importance (e.g. presentation, maintainance, extedibility, etc.) and which could be considered as secondary?

Should we aim at a unified platform or would it be a better choice to divide between different domains/applications (e.g. SciVis, InfoVis, Vast etc. or a different classification)?
