Data visualization is often used as the first step while performing a variety of analytical tasks. With the advent of large, high-dimensional datasets and significant interest in data science, there is a need for tools that can support rapid visual analysis. In this paper we describe our vision for a new class of visualization systems, namely visualization recommendation systems, that can automatically identify and interactively recommend visualizations relevant to an analytical task. We detail the key requirements and design considerations for a visualization recommendation system. We also identify a number of challenges in realizing this vision and describe some approaches to address them.
