*[Apologies for cross-posting]*

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite submissions to the *3rd Workshop on Urban
Visualization **(CityVis) *with a focus on *Energy Resilient Cities.
*The workshop
is co-located event with ACM e-Energy 2020 (June 22 - 26) held in
Melbourne, Australia.

Workshop website: https://cityvis.io/workshop.php

Visualization as a tool for analysis, exploration and communication can
help unravel the complex urban fabrics that form our cities. Yet,
there is a crucial need to bridge the gap between the flood of urban data
and the capacity of decision makers to integrate that data into effective
and informed decisions. This workshop series explores how data and data
visualization can be used to serve and better understand or even organize
urban processes, focusing on an explicitly “human-centric” perspective.
This perspective should help support and improve our understanding and the
utilizations of data for all stakeholders - from governments and companies
to citizens.

*Call for papers *
The energy sector is seeing substantial technological and analytical
enhancements enabling the delivery of smart systems via sensors, monitors
and other digital technologies as well as improvements to predictions,
forecasts and models throughout the industry. This emerging data is not
only growing in volume, but in its complexity. This complexity increases as
we draw connections with other urban infrastructures and incorporate

We invite innovative ideas, design concepts, requirement analysis and
work-in-progress in the following technical scope:

   - *Energy Visualization contexts:* smart cities / smart homes / smart
   buildings, energy policy and governance, power grids, net-zero initiatives,
   energy consumers and analysis
   - *Energy Visualization challenges:* uncertainty visualization,
   spatio-temporal visualization, network visualization
   - *Use of Disruptive technologies:* open source, open analytics and open
   workflows, machine learning, AI, VR/XR, tangible interfaces
   - *Energy Data Concepts:* related to quantified self, citizen science,
   open data portals, open (data) standards, big data & real-time data
   - *Human Interaction & user-centric design:* co-creation design methods,
   visualization for decision support and decision making, evaluation methods,
   stakeholder- & requirement analysis, visualizations for experts vs. general

This interactive workshop series explores the many challenges and goals of
urban data visualization. For previous CityVis Workshops see: 2018
