Special Issue on Visual Movement Analytics

As a follow-up to the successful workshop at the AGILE 2016 conference on “Visually-supported Computational Movement Analysis” we are now calling for papers for a special issue of the Information Visualization journal on

Visual Movement Analytics.

Submission DL is 31 Jan 2017. More information about the topic and the submission procedure is in the call for papers, which is open to anyone interested in this topic (not only workshop participants).

2016 workshop news: VCMA@AGILE & SpatialVA@GIScience

A quick update on the two workshops that we are running this year:

We have just published the list of accepted papers at the Visually-Supported Computational Movement Analysis (VCMA2016) workshop in Helsinki, Finland (14 June 2016). The contributions were excellent, promising a high-quality workshop. Stay tuned for final updates at the VCMA2016 website or on twitter (#VCMA2016) and join us for the workshop (registration details are on the website, and a side note that this is a co-located workshop with the AGILE2016 conference, which has the honour to have the ICA President, Prof Menno-Jan Kraak, as the keynote speaker).

Our second workshop, Understanding Spatial Data (Big and Small) with Visual Analytics (SpatialVA2016), will take place in Montreal, Canada (27 Sept 2016) and we are delighted to have two prominent scientists as keynote speakers: Prof Sheelagh Carpendale from the University of Calgary and Prof Alan MacEachren from Penn State University.
There is still time to contribute to this workshop: the deadline has been extended to 29 April 2016. So submit a contribution and join us in Canada for a great event.

See you in Helsinki and Montreal!

Visually-supported Computational Movement Analysis (VCMA 2016)

We are happy to announce a Call for Papers for the Workshop on “Visually-supported Computational Movement Analysis (VCMA 2016) which will be held on 14 June 2016, immediately preceeding this year’s AGILE 2016 Conference in Helsinki. The workshop is co-organised and supported by our commission.

We are calling for contributions to both a regular session with short paper contributions and a data challenge session. The workshop will also feature a panel with break-out discussions to assess and (re)define the current research agenda. The call for papers as a pdf is available here.

For complete information, see the workshop website.

Please, consider contributing either to the regular programme or to data challenge. Looking forward to see many of you in Helsinki!
