VAW addresses the exciting emerging field of Visual Analytics - the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visualisation. The workshop aims to bring together UK and overseas academics, government and industry experts with an interest in the role of visual analytics for supporting people in solving information intensive problems.

The workshop will feature keynote presentations for key speakers in the field. This year we have Dr. Joseph Kielman, Science and Technology Directorate at Department of Homeland Security, US. A series of sessions will also be included for paper presentations describing latest developments in Visual Analytics research and application as well as showcase presentations and collaboration discussions. The first workshop day (7th) will conclude with a workshop dinner.
