The Third International UKVAC Workshop
on Visual Analytics
6-8 September 2011
University College London, London, UK
Proposals are invited for VAW2011, the third international UKVAC workshop on Visual Analytics. VAW addresses the exciting emerging field of Visual Analytics - the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visualisation. The workshop aims to bring together UK and overseas academics, government and industry experts with an interest in the role of visual analytics for supporting people in solving information intensive problems. VAW 2011 is supported by the US Department of Homeland Security and HM Government in the UK.
The UKVAC is a partnership of UK universities with a shared interest in establishing a multi-disciplinary scientific community in the UK with active overseas links dedicated to promoting and contributing to the Visual Analytics research and development agenda. It comprises five UK universities: Bangor University, Imperial College London, Swansea University, University College London, and led by Middlesex University.
The workshop covers both the theoretical foundations and application of Visual analytics in wide ranging domains such as security and defence, law enforcement, emergency management, medicine and business.
