Pushing Boundaries in Information Visualization

Pushing Boundaries in Information Visualization: Using Virtual, Immersive and Interactive Technologies in Research & Practice

Saturday, September 13, 2008
9am - 4:30pm

This workshop will showcase some of the innovative uses of technology in terms of virtual and immersive environments for interacting with information. The day's events will generate attendee discussion around the use, integration and evaluation of such tools (how do we evaluate the use of these technologies? how can research improve practice? how can practice inform research, etc.).

The program will feature a colorful mix of research projects ranging from electrical stimulation of the nervous system with cochlear implant, to scalable visualization of genealogy links, experiential look at the death penalty, visualizing activity on a busy website, and comparing human and yeast cell protein interaction networks. Attendees need not be familiar with the disciplines of these research projects à the program will expose you to the use of immersive and interactive technology across a range of disciplines and then encourage discussion about the possibilities.
