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!

Looking Ahead, 2015-2019

Viz_Header_1Welcome to the new website for the ICA Commission on Visual Analytics. Our Commission has been advancing the state of the art in geovisualization, geocomputation, spatial analysis, and analytical reasoning since its inception in 1995.

At the 27th ICC meeting in Rio, our Commission Terms of Reference were approved, as was a name change to the new title of “Commission on Visual Analytics.” We chose this new title with the aim of developing stronger ties between ICA activities and the ongoing research and development happening in the broader field of Visual Analytics.

We have an ambitious plan for Commission activities in the years to come. Our agenda for 2015-2019 will include conferences, workshops, online seminars, and other activities. In many of these activities, we will partner with the Commission on Cognitive Issues in Geographic Visualization, Commission on Use, User, and Usability Issues, and the Commission on Map Design.
