  • Visual, Audio, Haptic and Multisensory Data Presentation including Data Physicalization
  • Human-Computer Interaction including Use of Natural Interfaces for Analytics
  • Analytical Reasoning and Sense-making of Big or Complex Data
  • Scalable Visual and Immersive Analytics including HPC for Visualisation
  • Responsive Analytic Algorithms for Interactive Data Exploration
  • Big Data Management, Transformation, and Presentation
  • Context-driven User Querying
  • Semantics-driven Visual and Immersive Analytics
