Abstract:One of the fundamentals of user-centred design and participatory design, in particular is the active involvement of users in the design and development process. However, users are often considered to lack capabilities of being innovative and to be able to see beyond what they currently have in front of them. On the other hand, when working with visualization, innovative ideas of new ways of displaying information may be brought up, far beyond what users could ever have imagined.

The purpose of this talk is to contrast the essential parts of user-centred design with the innovation capabilities required to visualize information in new ways and to explore the tension between these two fields. Could there be such a thing as user-centred information visualization, or are the two different fields pulling in completely different directions?
