Workshop Organizers

Michael Sedlmair is an assistant professor at the University of Stuttgart in Germany. 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.

Miriah Meyer is an associate professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah and a faculty member in the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute. Her research focuses on the design of visualization systems for helping researchers make sense of complex data.

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.

Publicity Chair

Bahador Saket is a third year PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology. His current research focuses on the design of interaction techniques for visualization construction and visual data exploration.

Local Arrangements Chair

Tanja Blascheck is a Post Doctoral Researcher at Inria. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Stuttgart (2017). Her main research areas are information visualization and visual analytics with a focus on evaluation using eye tracking and interaction logs.
