MAVIS is an organization of management researchers and professionals dedicated to the critical examination and design of visual analytical communication processes, tools and broad-spanning systems.

Foremost, the aim of this group is to develop and share frameworks to assist scholars and practitioners in the development of effective data visualizations based on experience, established and contemporary theoretical notions of fit and the sensemaking process.  Such guidance is advanced through the appreciation of pitfalls and opportunities that can arise due to the presence of prior experience bias and reinforcement traps.  It capitalizes on the distinct biases that others may have in their visual preferences in order to ensure robust interpretability and effective decision support across levels and stages of use.
