LUCAS breakfast Seminar: Visual Analytics and InfoVis Research: Where are we today? What are the next steps?
When: 2015-10-07 at 10:00-11:00
Where: E-huset. E:1426, John Ericssons väg 3, Lund
Speaker: Andreas Kerren
Abstract: This talk will firstly introduce the main concepts of interactive data visualization with a special focus on visual analytics and information visualization. Here, I will also highlight the most important challenges, pros and cons of these technologies from several perspectives, for instance, how important (and often difficult) the close collaboration with domain experts is. After providing a short outline of our overall research interests in the ISOVIS research group at Linnaeus University, I will talk about one sample project in more detail: a new visualization environment which supports distributed, synchronous and asynchronous collaboration for network analysis. Finally, the most important research trends and an outlook on future work are depicted. All together I hope that this talk can serve as a starting point for discussions and potential collaboration plans.
