Speaker: Prof. Takayuki Itoh (Ochanomizu University, Japan)

Visualization of densely connected graphs has been a long-term research problem, and many studies have applied graph hierarchization schemes.
In this talk, as well as the speaker's own hierarchical graph visualization methods, applications to gene networks and human networks will be presented.  Also, this talk will introduce the evaluation criteria that the speaker have proposed for the visualization results of hierarchical graphs, and discuss new appoaches in hierarchical graph visualization using these evaluation criteria.
