NEVAC researchers present work at VAST 2006

North-East Visualization and Analytics Center (NEVAC) researchers presented their work at the IEEE Symposium on Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), held in Baltimore in November. Weizhong Zhu and Chaomei Chen from NEVAC partner institution Drexel University demonstrated their new tool, Storylines. Storylines is a storytelling tool to generate event timelines, construct social networks, and identify key players in the networks. The demo "Storylines - A Tool to Explore Events and Key Players in Stories," was given during the Full Week Demo Session of the VAST symposium.

Additionally, Drexel's Chen partnered with GeoVISTA's Chris Weaver to author a paper that was presented during the Complex Information Spaces Symposium of VAST 2006. The paper is entitled "Visual Analysis of Conflicting Opinions."
