Title:  Who are my users?  The quest of user-adaptive interaction, applied to Information Visualization


Computers are fast becoming ubiquitous interactive tools intended to support a large variety of users in a growing range of tasks, However, designing interactive systems that satisfy the needs of highly heterogeneous user groups is challenging. Research in User-Adaptive Interaction (UAI) tackles this challenge by investigating how to devise interactive systems that capture in real time relevant needs and characteristics of their users, and personalize the interaction accordingly.

In this talk, I will present a new thread of research in UAI on devising User-Adaptive Visualizations. I will discuss our initial results on which individual differences can impact visualization processing, how these and other relevant interaction states can be captured using eye-tracking, and how to provide personalized support that can improve the user's experience with a visualization.
