IEEE Visualization (VIS) will take place in Vancouver, Canada, from October 20 to 25. IEEE Visualization (VIS) is the largest and most significant conference in the world on all types of visualization, whether pure information visualization or visual analysis. The conference is divided into three subtopics: IEEE Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), IEEE Information Visualization (InfoVis) and IEEE Scientific Visualization (SciVis).
The competence center "Information Visualization and Visual Analytics" presents two papers this year at the IEEE VIS, one in the field of cyber security and one in the field of medicine. The competence center will also be exhibiting at the exhibition.
Fraunhofer IGD supports the event as Pearl Supporter.
"NetCapVis: Web-based Progressive Visual Analytics for Network Packet Captures" by Alex Ulmer, David Sessler and Jörn Kohlhammer
Visual-interactive analysis of local network traffic
The analysis of network traffic is not only of interest to experts. There are a large number of Internet-enabled appliances in private households or smaller networks – but it is difficult to identify which of them are establishing connections to external services. Our prototype enables users to perform interactive visual analysis on router data in precisely the same way a malware expert would do on PCAP data in a sandbox.
How many grains of rice need to be taken from a pile of rice before it’s no longer a pile?--The question has yet to be definitively answered. With cohorts, it’s the other way around but before health professionals address this question, we are using artificial intelligence to create cohorts. Cohorts generally describe groups of patients who have relevant commonalities. Fraunhofer IGD is developing tools for interactive data analysis in close consultation with clinical users. They compile a patient group and, with the help of custom visual analysis tools, see immediately whether a cohort is promising and how that cohort can be refined.
