Title: Advanced Concepts and Techniques for Visualizing Large Data

Abstract: Advanced computing, imaging, and sensing technologies enable scientists to study natural and physical phenomena at unprecedented precision, resulting in an explosive growth of data. Furthermore, the size of the collected information about the Internet and mobile device users is expected to be even greater, a daunting challenge we must address in order to make sense and maximize utilization of all the available information for decision making and knowledge discovery. I will present a few new approaches to large data visualization for revealing hidden structures and gleaning insights from large, complex data found in many areas of study.

KwanLiuMa Short Bio - Kwan-Liu Ma, an IEEE Fellow, is a professor of computer science and the chair of the Graduate Group in Computer Science (GGCS) at the University of California, Davis. He leads the VIDi research group and directs the DOE SciDAC Institute for Ultrascale Visualization. Professor Ma received his PhD degree in computer science from the University of Utah in 1993. He then spent six years at the NASA Langley Research Center before joining UC Davis. He was a recipient of the prestigious NSF PECASE award in 2000. Professor Ma's research interests include visualization, computer graphics, interface design, and high-performance computing. He has been actively serving the research community. He was a papers chair of the IEEE Visualization Conference in 2008 and 2009, and an associate editor of IEEE TVCG during 2007-2011. He is a founding member of the IEEE Pacific Visualization Symposium and IEEE Symposium on Large Data Analysis and Visualization. Professor Ma presently serves on the editorial boards of the IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications, the Journal of Computational Science and Discoveries, and the Journal of Visualization.
