***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Apologies for cross posting ========================================================== Due to the change in location to Sydney, we are extending the deadline for the 2nd International Symposium on Big Data Visual Analytics (BDVA). THE EXTENDED DEADLINE for BDVA 2016: July 24, 2016 See the call for papers below. ========================================================== CALL FOR PAPERS 2nd International Symposium on Big Data Visual Analytics (BDVA) 22-25th November 2016, Sydney, Australia (Note that the venue has changed since the 1st CfP, see below) ========================================================== In the last decade Big Data Analytics has become a major decision support factor in industry and government organisations. Visual Analytics is the enabling science for effective exploration of big data through meaningful visualisations and interactive user interfaces. Understanding the multidisciplinary nature, including user querying, powerful analytics, machine learning, visualisation, human-computer interaction, perception and cognition, is critical for Visual Analytics to be effectively deployed. ---- BDVA16 ---- The symposium will be held in Sydney, Australia, at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) North Ryde site. BDVA16 will host an exciting programme with internationally renowned keynote speakers, special sessions, and a day of complementary hands-on workshops. BDVA16 aims to: - bring together leading experts from all relevant scientific domains to advance the understanding of visual analytics of complex, big, and dynamic data; - provide an exciting venue for researchers to network and establish national and international collaborations; - and provide early career scientists with an inspiring event allowing them to connect to relevant experts in the field. SCOPE The symposium will accept a range of manuscript types, including methods, systems, applications, evaluation techniques and theoretical work in the area of Visual Analytics. The scientific scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to: - Visual Analytics of High-dimensional and Spatio-temporal Data - Scientific and Information Visualisation - Machine Learning and Data Mining for Big Data Visual Analytics - Visual Representation and Interaction - Perception and Cognition of Visual Information - Analytical Reasoning and Sense-making on Big Data - Context-driven User Querying and Semantics-driven Visual Analytics - Evaluation Methods for Visual Analytics - Visual Analytics Algorithms and Foundations - High Performance Graphics for Visualisation - Advanced Technologies and Applications for Visual Analytics - Virtual and Augmented Reality for Visual Analytics - Art and Science for Visual Analytics - Big Data Management, Transformation, and Presentation - Visual Analysis of Large and Complex Networks - Visual Analytics Processes and Workflows - Simulation for Visual Analytics FURTHER INFORMATION BDVA website: www.bdva.net Email BDVA16 enquiries to: [log in to unmask] IMPORTANT DATES Full paper submission: 24th July Notification of acceptance: 31st August Camera ready submission: 15th September Poster submission: 31st October Poster notification: 5th November GENERAL CHAIRS Tomasz Bednarz (Queensland University of Technology, Australia) Karsten Klein (University of Konstanz, Germany) Quang Vinh Nguyen (Western Sydney University, Australia) Ulrich Engelke (CSIRO, Australia) Julian Heinrich (University of Tübingen, Germany) TECHNICAL PROGRAMME CHAIRS Karsten Klein (University of Konstanz, Germany) Julian Heinrich (University of Tübingen, Germany) _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
