Wolfgang Aigner is an expert in Information Visualization (InfoVis) and Visual Analytics (VA), particularly in the context of time-oriented data. He performs research on concepts, methods, and software prototypes that support humans in dealing with large and complex information structures, to make them more comprehensible, facilitate exploration, and enable knowledge discovery. Wolfgang served as reviewer and program committee member for various scientific conferences, symposia, and journals, and acted as co-chair and advisor for scientific workshops. Wolfgang has authored and co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed articles and presented his research at international venues. Further, he is the lead author of the recently published book "Visualization of Time-Oriented Data" (Springer, 2011) that is devoted to a systematic view of this topic. He has received national awards for his research work, was awarded a Top Cited Article 2005-2010 from Pergamon/Elsevier, and received a best paper honorable mention at IEEE Conference on Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST). He is also the founder and coordinator of a public Wiki to collect and share information on InfoVis (InfoVis:Wiki). Additionally, he encourages young people to take their place in science and research by leading award-winning collaborative research projects and internships with pupils of technical high schools (HTL). His main research interests include visual analytics and information visualization, human-computer interaction (HCI), information design, and user-centered design.
