Associate Professor Chris Weaver (University of Oklahoma, USA): "Of Spaces and Objects: Re-imagining Visualization with Interactive Data Editing." | Währinger Straße 29, 1090 Wien, SR11 | 10:30 Uhr.

What if we could create and manipulate data directly inside visualizations? How would the visual representation of data affect what we can do to it? How could interaction allow us to express our ideas as data? Building on well-known systems and principles of interactive visualization design, I will offer a vision of visualization as an expressive workspace for observing and interpreting the world interactively.
