Call for Papers
1st International Symposium on Big Data Visual Analytics (BDVA)
22-25th September 2015, CSIRO, Hobart, 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 at the beautiful Hobart harbour site of the
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) on
22-25th September 2015. BDVA’15 will host an exciting programme with
internationally renowned keynote speakers, special sessions, and a day of
complimentary hands-on workshops. BDVA’15 will be the first of its kind
with the aims to
      -          bring together leading experts from all relevant
      scientific domains to advance the understanding of visual analytics
      of complex, big, and dynamic data;
      -          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
      -          Scientific and Information Visualisation
      -          Machine Learning and Data Mining for Big Data Visual
      -          Visual Representation and Interaction
      -          Perception and Cognition of Visual Information
      -          Analytical Reasoning and Sense-making on Big Data
      -          Context-driven User Querying
      -          Semantics-driven Visual Analytics
      -          Evaluation Methods for Visual Analytics
      -          Visual Analytics Algorithms and Foundations
      -          High Performance Graphics for Visualisation
