Mobile and Breaking News: New Challenges for News Information Visualizations

As news content moves from desktop to mobile devices and the expectations of real-time information increases, audiences are beginning to seek news visualizations for their on-the-go, fast-paced lives, viewing them on a variety of devices in a variety of contexts. This cross-discipline workshop will explore challenges and opportunities for presenting and interacting with visualizations on mobile devices and look at workflows for creating visualizations during breaking news.

This is a partnered day-long workshop with IEEE VisWeek 2013. Participants are encouraged to attend the other two sessions:
