You are all cordially invited to workshop visual analytics and applications, which will take place on 8th of April, from 14:00-17:00 at Pulse-hall 4. Please find detailed program below.
14:00 Jean Daniel Fekete: “Exploring the Evolution of Relationships with Dynamic Hypergraphs”
14:40 Renata Raidou: “Employing Visual Analytics for the Exploration and Prediction”
15:30 Cagatay Turkay: “Informed computational modelling through visual analytics”
the increasing availability of computational data analysis and modelling tools
that can be utilised out-of-the-box, the route from data to results is now much
shorter. However, these advancements also come together their own limitations,
and a data scientists need to be aware of the pitfalls and act carefully to
question every observation and method used within each step of the data
analysis process. Visual analytics approaches where interactive visualisations
are coupled tightly with the algorithms offer effective methodologies in
conducting data science in such inquisitive, rigorous ways. This talk will
discuss how visual analytics can facilitate such practices and will look at
examples of research on how data can be transformed and visualised creatively
in multiple perspectives, on how comparisons can be made within different
models, parameters, and within local and global solutions, and on how
interaction is an enabler for such processes.
16:10 Thomas Hollt: Cytosplore: Visual Analytics for Single-Cell Profiling of the Immune System Abstract:Recent advances in single-cell acquisition technology have led to a shift towards single-cell analysis in many fields of biology. In immunology, detailed knowledge of the cellular composition is of interest, as it can be the cause of deregulated immune responses, which cause diseases. Similarly, vaccination is based on triggering proper immune responses; however, many vaccines are ineffective or only work properly in a subset of those who are vaccinated. Identifying differences in the cellular composition of the immune system in such cases can lead to more precise treatment. Cytosplore is an integrated, interactive visual analysis framework for the exploration of large single-cell datasets. We have developed Cytosplore in close collaboration with immunology researchers and several partners use the software in their daily workflow. Cytosplore enables efficient data analysis and has led to several discoveries alongside high-impact publications.
Faizan got his BSc in Electronic Engineering from NED University, Karachi, Pakistan in 2014. He got his MSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Ozyegin University, Turkey in 2017. He will be working with Dr. Anna Vilanova on Medical visulization.
Professor Eisemann is to be awarded the 2019 Dutch prize for ICT research (Nederlandse Prijs voor ICT-onderzoek). The well-deserved award is a recognition for Prof. Eisemann’s research into the accurate, detailed depiction of visualizations using modern graphics hardware. The prize will be officially awarded to Prof. Eisemann during the ICT Open 2019 in Hilversum. Congratulations to Prof. Eisemann!
We have one new PhD joining our group, Baran Usta, welcome!
Baran got his BSc in Computer Science and Engineering from Sabanci University, Turkey in 2015. He got his MSc in Computer Science and Engineering from the same university in 2018. During his studies, he was an exchange student at TU/e for bachalors and TU Delft for masters.
Eurographics 2018 takes place in the Netherlands! Eurographics is the flagship event of the Eurographics Asssociation and the top computer graphics conference in Europe. Checkout the program here.
The registration is now open! Early-bird is running until 15th of March. All registration fees include full access to the 5-day conference, all social events, the electronic theater, as well as on-site lunch!
We are looking forward to seeing you in Delft between the 16th-20th of April!
16 APRIL 2018 09:00 T/M 19 APRIL 2018 18:00 – LOCATIE: TU DELFT AULA CONGRESS CENTER – DOOR: COMMUNICATION EWI
Eurographics 2018 continues a series of conferences organized by the Eurographics Association covering the wide field of Computer Graphics, from rendering techniques to geometry and mesh processing, as well as computer animation and physical simulation.
The 39th Eurographics conference will be held on April 16-20, 2018 in Delft, The Netherlands. Delft University of Technology will host the conference.
Berend Klein-Haneveld and Cees-Willem Hofstede successfully defended their theses in our group this week.
On Wednesday, the 26th of March, Berend defended his thesis “RegistrationShop – an interactive 3D medical volume registration tool”. In his work he developed RegistrationShop as a tool that aims to make the complex process of 3D volume registration easier by providing simple interaction techniques and real-time visual feedback of the current registration results. Users are able to place landmarks in 3D either by surface picking or by tracing a ray through the volume until the desired location is reached. During the registration process they are provided with visualizations of both the moving and fixed volumes as well as the current registration result in a combined view.
On Friday, the 28th of March, Cees-Willem defended his thesis “The Online Anatomical Human – an online browser and annotation system for real human anatomy”. He worked on bringing anatomical education to a web browser, by creating an online environment in which a 3D anatomical model of the pelvis is linked to 2D medical imaging data. Users are able to annotate structures directly on the 3D mesh using landmark, brush and line tools and can enrich the model with their annotations. Both theses were supervised by Charl Botha, Anna Vilanova and Noeska Smit.
We’d like to congratulate Berend en Cees-Willem on their Master of Science titles!
