The primary goal of our research is to design adaptive information visualization systems that adapt to the specific needs of each individual viewer.

In this paper, we focus on current efforts to understand which cognitive measures can be relevant, as well as if/how a viewer’s gaze pattern can predict performance on associated visualization task.
