Real-world decision makers, such as scientists and engineers are confronted with the needs to make critical decisions on a daily basis. Typically, this requires the understanding of the high-dimensional input parameter space and associated outcomes. To facilitate this understanding, one promising approach involves the definition and extractions of features of interest and the use of these features to drive the interactive exploration of the parameter space. Our application spotlight will focus on examples of these systems and synthesize common problems and themes. We envision incorporating talks from leading visualization and application experts in this area including Dan Keefe (University of Minnesota) on the design of medical instruments, Valerio Pascucci/Jackie Chen (University of Utah/Sandia National Laboratory) on the design of combustion reactions and David Rogers/Richard Sandberg (Los Alamos National Laboratory) on the design of shock physics experiments. We will solicit lightning talks to gather other examples from the community. A discussion session will summarize common themes, methodological advances and next steps and turned into a journal paper for publication. In addition, a set of short papers describing each system will be archived. Potential contributions to basic research include high dimensional space representation, traversal methods and interactivity techniques.
