This one-day special track is a programme item of I-KNOW â€™11, the 11th International Conference on Knowledge Management and Knowledge Technologies which takes place in Graz, Austria from September 7th to September 9nd 2011. The special track provides an interdisciplinary forum for international scientists and practitioners to discuss theoretical and practical aspects of Visual Analytics. I-KNOW 2011 brings together international researchers and practitioners from the fields of knowledge management and knowledge technologies. The conference will cover relevant aspects from the fields of Knowledge Management, Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Services, Social Media, Enterprise 2.0 and the Social Web. I-KNOW 2011 will be held concurrently with I-SEMANTICS 2011, the International Conference on Semantic Systems.
Visual Analytics is the science of analytical reasoning supported by interactive visual techniques. It integrates techniques from visualization and computer graphics, statistics and mathematics, data management and knowledge representation, data analysis and machine learning and cognitive and perceptual sciences. Real-world applications in areas like business intelligence, media analysis or protection of intellectual property rights require efficient access and analysis of massive, heterogeneous, dynamic knowledge repositories which frequently contain ambiguous or conflicting evidence. Visual Analytics advocates a promising combination of automatic analysis and human pattern recognition abilities and domain knowledge to address this challenge.
TAVAâ€™11 addresses theoretical advances and practical applications of Visual Analytics. In the best tradition of the I-KNOW conference series, the objective of the special track is to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field. TAVAâ€™11 will provide a forum for the promotion of research and developments in Visual Analytics with particular attention towards the application of Visual Analytics in Knowledge Technologies and Knowledge Management.
We encourage submission of original research papers reporting on theoretical advances, evaluation results or applications of Visual Analytics in relevant real-world scenarios. Submissions will be reviewed by a board of international experts with accepted papers to be published in the I-KNOW conference proceedings. The special track will be held in English.
