Kasper Hornbaek will give an interesting talk about the challenges in evaluating information visualization.
Prof. Hornbaek's research interests lie with Human-Computer Interaction in general and evaluation methods, interaction techniques and information visualization in particular. During his research, he has conducted numerous empirical studies, for example regarding the usability of focus+context techniques such as fisheye or overview+detail. He is part of the European COST Action IC0904 (Towards the integration of transectorial IT design and evaluation) and has been a reviewer on many high-profile conferences and journals in the field of Human-Computer Interaction, such as CHI Conference and the International Journal of Human Computer Studies.
