Call for Submissions

Cognition and Visualization 1

We invite papers on cognitive and perceptual issues in visualization design, cartography and geovisual analytics to be included in a series of sessions at the 2021 Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA from April 7 – 11.

Topics include (but are not limited to):
— empirical cognitive and perceptual research in cartography and (geo)visualization, writ broadly;
— cartography and geovisualization "in the wild" — successful case studies, challenges of adoption, etc.;
— design, use and evaluation of cartographic and (geo)visualization tools in education scenarios;
— visual reasoning and decision making in spatial context, including but not limited to reasoning with uncertainty;
— the "other" uses of maps — visualization as a way to elicit and subvert the creative, emotional, and other non-traditional aspects of reasoning;
— development, evaluation and application of the theoretical foundation of the cartographic and (geo)visualization practices;
— development, evaluation and application of the methodological foundation (cognitive tasks and stimuli, best practices of study design, reproducibility, etc.) of the cartographic and (geo)visualization research.

To be considered:
1. Register and submit your abstract online following the AAG Guidelines.
2. Email your presenter identification number (PIN), paper title, and abstract to Alexander Savelyev (savelyev@txstate.edu).
3. Set your email header to “CogVis CFP” to be assigned to a proper session.
