Workshops

The goal of the workshops is to provide forums for highly focussed discussion on areas which are specialised but nevertheless relevant to the main conference. 

Note that attendance at workshops is free for all people already registered for Diagrams.

The 4th International Workshop on Euler Diagrams

Date: 28 July 2014 - 1:30pm to 5:15pm
Organisers: Jim Burton and Gem Stapleton

Euler diagrams represent relationships between sets, including intersection, containment, and disjointness. These diagrams have become the foundations of various visual languages and have notably facilitated the modelling of, and logical reasoning about, complex systems. Over the years, they have been extensively used in areas such as biosciences, business, criminology and national security to intuitively visualize relationships and relative cardinalities of sets. This widespread adoption has allowed analysis of complex collections of data. This workshop will cover all aspects of Euler diagram research, particularly in areas such as:

1. theoretical advances: drawability, layouts, logic and reasoning
2. software support: diagram generation, automated reasoning, and data exploration,
3. real-world applications: system modelling, information visualization, and education,
4. cognition and perceptual principles: readability, aesthetics, and evaluation including comparison to other representations.

The First International Workshop on Graph Visualization in Practice (GraphViP)

Date: 1 August 2014 - 9:00am to 12:30pm
Organisers: Karsten Klein and Steve Kieffer

The Workshop on Graph Visualization in Practice: Challenges and Methods is a forum to foster exchanges and discussions among researchers in graph visualization and people from application areas that require graph visualization. The objective is to discuss challenges emerging from applications as well as recent advances in graph visualization research, and to investigate how to facilitate the transfer of research results into practical applications. The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to:

1. graph drawing,
2. interactive graph exploration,
3.graph-based visual data analysis,
4. evaluation of graph visualizations,
5.graph visualization software,
6.graph models and analysis.

More details on how to participate can be found on the GraphViP website.
