Speaker: Prof. Daniel Weiskopf (Managing Director VIS, Co-Director VISUS Visualization Research Center (VISUS) and Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems (VIS) University of Stuttgart)
Multidimensional data analysis is of broad interest for a wide range of applications. In this talk, I discuss visualization approaches that support the analysis of such data. I start with a brief overview of the field, a conceptual model, and a discussion of visualization strategies.
This part is accompanied by a few examples of recent advancements, with a focus on results from my own work. In the second part, I detail techniques that enrich basic visual mappings like scatterplots, parallel coordinates, or plots of dimensionality reduction by incorporating
local correlation analysis. I also discuss sampling issues in multidimensional visualization, and how we can extend it to uncertainty visualization. The talk closes with an outlook on future research directions.
Daniel Weiskopf is a professor and one of the directors of the Visualization Research Center (VISUS) and acting director of the Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems (VIS), both at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. He received his Dr. rer. nat. (PhD) degree in
physics from the University of Tübingen, Germany (2001), and the Habilitation degree in computer science at the University of Stuttgart, Germany (2005). His research interests include visualization, visual analytics, eye tracking, human-computer interaction, computer
graphics, augmented and virtual reality, and special and general relativity. He is spokesperson of the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center SFB/Transregio 161 “Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing” (www.sfbtrr161.de), which covers basic research on visualization, including multidimensional visualization.
