Biography

Ivan Viola is Assistant Professor at the Vienna University of Technology, Austria and Adjunct Professor at University of Bergen, Norway. He received M.Sc. in 2002 and Ph.D. in 2005 from Vienna University of Technology, Austria. His research is focusing on effective visualization methods that are well understandable by humans. Viola co-authored several scientific works published in international journals and conferences such as IEEE TVCG, IEEE Vis, EG CGF, and EG EuroVis and acted as a reviewer and IPC member for conferences in the field of computer graphics and visualization. He is member of Eurographics, IEEE Computer Society, VGTC, and ACM.
