Immersive Analytics is a new research thrust that aims at immersing users in their data. Technologies such as Virtual and Augmented Reality have recently widely evolved, and provide now usable devices to visualise and interact with data in very natural ways, e.g. through 3D stereo vision and tracking. In this workshop, we focus on visual data presentation, and the challenges that Immersive Environments have to overcome to provide fluid user experience. A series of presenters in specific application fields and in wider research areas will show how research in Immersive Visual Analytics is breaking the desktop environment barrier and provide users with new interactive and visual experience.
