Advances in Interactive and Visual Data Clustering

organized within the  16th International Conference Information
Visualisation 2012, which will be held on 10, 11, 12 and 13 July 2012,
LIRMM CNRS Univ. Montpellier II, Montpellier,  France.

Visual and interactive approaches have been developed for data clustering
since several decades now with the aim of improving the discovery of
clusters in unlabelled data. With the new challenges that result from the
accumulation of large and complex datasets, efficient visual data
clustering requires the study and implementation of new and advanced
methods. The aim of this symposium is to let researchers make a state of
the art, discuss their ideas, present recent advances and results within
the context of data clustering and visualizations or interactive methods.

The scope of the symposium will cover all aspects of visual and interactive
data clustering. This includes many different issues like:

- How can the domain expert create clusters from an interactive
visualization of large and/or complex data?

- How can standard clustering algorithms be combined and improved with
visualizations and interactions?

- What methods may efficiently reorganize a visual structure in order to
let clusters appear?

- What are the recent and successful applications of visual data clustering?

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Topics covered, but not limited to, include:

- Visualization of clusters: maps, dendrograms, trees, matrices,
1D/2D/3D/nD ...
- Clustering algorithm that produce visual results: Self-Organizing Maps,
hierarchical agglomerative clustering, biomimetic algorithms, proximity
- Cooperation between clustering and visualization algorithms
- Reorganization of visualizations, rearrangement clustering, matrix or
tree reordering
- Interactive discovery of clusters, other interactions with clusters in
- Visual analytics and data clustering
- Handling large and complex data: Bioinformatics, Social networks,
attributes-values, sequences, trees, graphs
- Parallel implementation of visual clustering approaches
- User and case studies
