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?
