Symposium Goals

Building on the success of the previous two conferences, the Symposium on Communicating Complex Information (SCCI) explores the relationships between and within the contexts that affect complex information, information design, information architecture, user experience, and usability. It seeks to examine how design choices influence people’s behavior when interacting with complex information, and how the knowledge of situation contexts improves the design of complex information systems. The intention of SCCI is to foster an integrated approach to the design of complex information by bringing together members of the various research and practitioner communities.

Goals of this symposium are to build upon what we already know about communicating complex information across the spectrum of casual users to domain experts and clarify our understanding of what issues urgently need further research.

Keynote address will be by Whitney Quesenbery.
