Tutorial on Information Visualization for Innovating Research Methods at Spatial Cognition 2014

We will organize a Tutorial on Information Visualization for Innovating Research Methods at Spatial Cognition 2014 (SC2014)  conference in Bremen on September 15th, 2014. The teachers of the tutorial are Tomi Kauppinen (Cognitive Systems Group, University of Bremen) and Willem van Hage (SynerScope B.V.).

In the tutorial we will introduce visual approaches for investigating spatial data in the context of other dimensions (such as social or temporal). The goal is to show via examples how information visualization, exploration and interaction support innovating new research methods. The tutorial materials will be made available online at LinkedScience.org/tutorials.

The main tutorial exercises will be done within the morning of the tutorial day.  For the afternoon there is an optional session for studying how to apply visual analytics techniques to data brought by participants.

Thus while the focus of hands-on exercises of the morning session is in existing case examples the optional afternoon session is more about brainstorming and exchanging ideas about suitable methods for the data from the participants.

Register to SC2014 and tutorial today here.

Making Sense of Data is the theme of Linked Science 2014

We will organize the 4th Workshop on Linked Science 2014 (LISC2014) with the focus on theme Making Sense Out of Data. LISC2014 will collocate with ISWC2014 in Riva del Garda, Trentino, Italy on October 19 or 20, 2014.

We encourage submissions on both

  1. new results through making use of semantic reasoning or
  2. making innovative combination of existing technologies (such as visualization, data mining, machine learning, and natural language processing) with Semantic Web technologies to enable better understanding of data.

LISC2014 is organized by

– Jun Zhao, Lancaster University
– Marieke van Erp, VU University Amsterdam
– Carsten Keßler, Hunter College, City University of New York
– Tomi Kauppinen, University of Bremen
– Jacco van Ossenbruggen, CWI and
– Willem Robert van Hage, SynerScope B.V.
