2nd International Symposium on Big Data Visual Analytics (BDVA)

22-25th November 2016, QUT, Brisbane, Australia

In the last decade Big Data Analytics has become a major decision support
factor in industry and government organisations. Visual Analytics is the
enabling science for effective exploration of big data through meaningful
visualisations and interactive user interfaces. Understanding the
multidisciplinary nature, including user querying, powerful analytics,
machine learning, visualisation, human-computer interaction, perception and
cognition, is critical for Visual Analytics to be effectively deployed.


The symposium will be held in sunny Brisbane, at Queensland University of
Technology  (QUT) Gardens Point campus. BDVA’16 will host an exciting
programme with internationally renowned keynote speakers, special sessions,
and a day of complementary hands-on workshops. BDVA’16 aims to:

- bring together leading experts from all relevant scientific domains to
advance the understanding of visual analytics of complex, big, and dynamic

- provide an exciting venue for researchers to network and establish
national and international collaborations;

- and provide early career scientists with an inspiring event allowing them
to connect to relevant experts in the field.


The symposium will accept a range of manuscript types, including methods,
systems, applications, evaluation techniques and theoretical work in the
area of Visual Analytics.

The scientific scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to:

- Visual Analytics of High-dimensional and Spatio-temporal Data

- Scientific and Information Visualisation

- Machine Learning and Data Mining for Big Data Visual Analytics

- Visual Representation and Interaction

- Perception and Cognition of Visual Information

- Analytical Reasoning and Sense-making on Big Data

- Context-driven User Querying and Semantics-driven Visual Analytics

- Evaluation Methods for Visual Analytics

- Visual Analytics Algorithms and Foundations

- High Performance Graphics for Visualisation

- Advanced Technologies and Applications for Visual Analytics

- Virtual and Augmented Reality for Visual Analytics

- Art and Science for Visual Analytics

- Big Data Management, Transformation, and Presentation

- Visual Analysis of Large and Complex Networks

- Visual Analytics Processes and Workflows

- Simulation for Visual Analytics

"Regardless of academic or professional background, any attendee of BDVA
will take away some very pertinent and useful ideas when it comes to the
analysis of big data using effective visualisation techniques."

"A superb small conference on BIG DATA! Great venue, presentations,
speakers, social events and personal interactions unlike the big and
established conferences. If there was an award for best conference of the
year then BDVA should receive."

"The conference was excellent, very topical and filled a need with the
research community. It was well organised and the keynote speakers were
very good. And the workshop session I attended was excellent."

"BDVA where art meets science to create understanding."
