Visits of International Scientists

  • Catherine Plaisant (June–July): Invited professor from the 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 the University of Bari, Italy (August–September): 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.

  • Claudio Silva (August 2018 – June 2019): Sabbatical from New York University (USA). Also, invited professor through a DigiCosme grant for 3 months. Claudio Silva is spending one year with Aviz. We launched a bi-weekly seminar on explainable machine-learning with visualization.

  • Wesley Willett and Lora Oehlberg (June): as part of the associated team SEVEN both professors came for a three-day workshop to Aviz during which we discussed designs for the noise project sensors and the associated data displays. We also worked in more depth on a survey article we plan to publish.
