Workshop Organizers

Michael Sedlmair is an assistant professor at the University of Vienna in Austria. He holds a PhD from the University of Munich (2010). Michael's main research interests are interdisciplinary visualization research, high-dimensional data analysis, as well as investigating new and refined methodological approaches for visualization design and evaluation.

Petra Isenberg is a research scientist in the Aviz group at INRIA, the French National Research Institute for Computer Science. She holds a PhD degree from the University of Calgary (2009). Her main research interests lie at the intersection of information visualization, CSCW, and interactive surfaces.

Tobias Isenberg is a senior research scientist with INRIA in France. He works on topics in interactive non-photorealistic/illustrative rendering and explores applications in visualization.

Narges Mahyar is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia, Canada. Narges received her PhD in computer science from the University of Victoria (2014). Her main research interests are information visualization, user interface design, computer-supported cooperative work, collaborative visual analytics, large interactive surfaces, touch-based interactions, user interface design, human computer interaction (HCI), note taking and, evaluation methodologies.

Heidi Lam is a research scientist at Tableau Software. She earned a PhD in computer science from the University of British Columbia. Her main research interest is to explore the roles of information visualization in supporting large data sets analysis.
