While activity on this site has been a bit slow this year, I’ve helped start a new group blog focused on visualization research, called Multiple Views.
The Tapestry 2018 program is complete, including the three keynotes and eight newly-added short stories. We are now looking for proposals for demos and will send out a call for PechaKucha-style talks to attendees soon, too.
The final report from VIS 2018 (see previously here and here) again covers papers, papers, and more papers. There are new ways to specify visualizations, a panel, perception research, as well as new work on how to deal with uncertainty in data.
While the first part of this report covered mostly workshops and other events, it's all papers from now on. Plus a session on the future of the VIS conference.
The IEEE VIS conference is the most important outlet for academic research. This year's conference took place in Berlin, Germany. Here is a report on some of the most interesting (to me, anyway) papers, events, and developments, in three parts.
We recently announced the speakers for Tapestry 2018, which takes place November 29 and 30 at the University of Miami. It will again be focused on telling stories with data, but we're also making a few changes.
EuroVis raged on through the end of the week with talks, posters, and lots of food. This second part covers papers about visualization evaluation, high-dimensional structures, graph layouts, etc., as well as the capstone and closing (with information about next year).

EuroVis 2018 in Brno, Czechia, is in full swing. The first two days included workshops, the opening with a very fun and interesting keynote, and some good papers. [Read more...] about EuroVis 2018, Monday and Tuesday
If you're into visualization for communication and storytelling, these two events should be on your radar: the Visualization for Communication Workshop (VisComm) at VIS and Tapestry 2018. [Read more...] about VisComm Workshop at VIS and Tapestry 2018
The academic visualization community largely comes from computer science: most of the professors teach in computer science (or similar) departments, most of the students doing research are computer science students of some flavor or other. It's interesting to consider how the field might be different if visualization had emerged from a different discipline. [Read more...] about Visualization: Three Alternate Histories
