Visual Analytics supports analytical thinking and reasoning by combining advances in areas such as Information Visualization, Data Mining and Big Data.
The KDU Visual Analytics Summer School will provide students, researchers, academics and industry professionals with an opportunity to come together to learn, share experiences and to develop new cross-disciplinary partnerships. Over the course of this 5 day-long workshop we will:
- learn from key researchers in the field,
- take part in hands-on sessions to deepen these learnings, and
- work together on case-study oriented mini-projects.
The summer school aims at finding the correct balance between theory and application. The programme has been designed to introduce concepts, tools and technologies and then further practice their usage in scenarios to solve Visual Analytics specific problems. The summer school will also provide case studies to participants for their own exploration, results of which will be shared and discussed at the end.
