AVIZ researchers collaborate with a number of international partners, including:
Collaboration with Google
AVIZ collaborates with Google on several projects, related to the Google Research Grant (see sec 7.1 ) and to evaluation methodology in information visualization  . Heidi Lam from Google spent 3 months at AVIZ to collaborate more closely.
Collaboration with Microsoft Research
AVIZ collaborates with several researchers from Microsoft Research Redmond, in particular on the topic of new interactions for information visualization  and brain connectivity visualization.
Collaboration with New-York University
Jean-Daniel Fekete collaborates with Claudio Silva and Juliana Freire from NYU-Poly on the VisTrails workflow system for visual analytics (http://www.vistrails.org ). Rémi Rampin, intern from the Univ. Paris-Sud Master in HCI, has spent one month at Orsay and 5 months at NYU-Poly to allow VisTrails to run Java-based applications and Toolkits. Rémi successfully connected the traditional Python-C implementation of VisTrails to the Java virtual machine using the JPype package. Jean-Daniel Fekete is not porting the Obvious Toolkit  in this environment to integrate all its components  .
