  • The goal of this joint work between the Aviz team at Inria Saclay and the ILab at the University of Calgary is to develop and study situated data visualizations to address the limitations of traditional platforms of data analytics. In a situated data visualization, the data is directly visualized next to the physical space, object, or person it refers to. Situated data visualizations can surface information in the physical environment and allow viewers to interpret data in-context, monitor changes over time, make decisions, and act on the physical world in response to the insights gained. However, research on this topic remains scarce and limited in scope. We will build on our track record of successfull collaborations to jointly develop situated visualization as a novel research direction. The objective for the first year is to design and implement situated visualizations to support health and aging. Our joint work is expected to generate benefits at multiple levels, including to society and industry (by empowering individuals and professionals with technology), to the scientific community (by developing a new research direction), to the academic partners (by reinforcing existing research links and establishing them as leaders on the topic), and to students (by providing them with unique training opportunities with a diverse team of world-class researchers).

Inria International Partners

Informal International Partners

Microsoft Research: Petra Isenberg, Tobias Isenberg, and Tanja Blascheck regularly collaborate with Bongshin Lee on topics related to non-desktop visualizations such as mobile visualization, ubiquitous visualization, or touch interaction for visualization.

University of Maryland: Catherine Plaisant regularly collaborates with various team members on projects related to temporal exploratory visualization.

Inria International Chairs
  • IIC PLAISANT Catherine

  • Title: Visual Analytics for Exploratory Data Analysis

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • University of Maryland (United States) - HCIL - Catherine Plaisant

  • Duration: 2018 - 2022

  • Start year: 2018

  • Visual Analytics for Exploratory Data Analysis: The project leverages Dr. Plaisants 30 years of experience in the design and evaluation of novel user interface and the longstanding synergies between my research activities and those of the AVIZ lab. It also builds on early collaborative activities having taken place between Maryland and Inria during a 2017 summer visit. The joint work particularly focuses on: event analysis, network analysis, and novel evaluation methods for visual analytics.
