Network visualizations support research in a range of scientific domains from biology to humanities. NetworkCube is a platform to bridge the gap between domain scientists and visualisation researchers; NetworkCube aims in being a fast way to deploy experimental visualizations from research to domain experts analyzing dynamic networks. In turn, InfoVis researchers benefit from studying how their visualizations are used in the wild  [45].

NetworkCube is made of three parts: a core, the Vistorian which is specialized for visualizations for historians, and the Connectoscope which is specialized for Brain Researchers. NetworkCube provides multiple representations for dynamic networks, allowing complex explorations from Web clients.
