Abstract: Visualization exists in many niche packages, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. In this BoF a series of presentations was meant to stimulate a discussion between developers and users about the future of visualization tools. A wiki4 page has been set up to log and continue this discussion. One recent technique, dubbed “plastifying,” has enabled different tools to interoperate data between them and result in a very flexible environment. Also deemed important are the ability to write plug-ins for analysis in visualization tools. Publication quality graphs are sometimes missing from the tools we use.
