Visits of International Scientists

  • Catherine Plaisant (June–July): Invited professor from University of Maryland, USA. Invited through a DigiCosme grant, Catherine Plaisant has spent two months with Aviz. We have launched two research projects, one on hypergraph visualization and one on tracing users to understand their use of visualization. Catherine Plaisant has interacted with all of the Aviz students and post-doctoral fellows, as well as with the permanent researchers.

  • Paolo Buono, from University of Bari, Italy. Paolo Buono has spent two months with Aviz working on the visualization of dynamic networks. He has collaborated with Paoa Valdivia, Catherine Plaisant, and Jean-Daniel Fekete for that project. He has also interacted with all the members of Aviz.

  • Jaemin Jo (March–April): intern from Seoul National University, Korea. Worked on converting a KNN algorithm into a progressive form.

  • Nicola Pezzotti (April–May): intern from University of Delft, The Netherlands. Worked on data structures and algorithms for managing very large (out of core) datasets in the context of progressive algorithms.
