Title: Visual Computing and Analysis of Complex Systems
Summary: Visualization and visual computing use computer-supported, interactive, visual representations of (abstract) data to amplify cognition. In recent years data complexity and variability has increased considerably. This raises the need for effective visualization techniques. Examples are: visual reformations, sparse and guided interactions, comparative and ensemble visualizations, coordinated multiple views and integrated views, visual summarizations and aggregations, scalable visualizations, and visual rankings. A few recent instances in these respects are discussed and current research challenges are sketched at the end of the talk.
