A Visual data story: inception, evolution, and actual state of Visualization
(my view of)

The seminar will retrace the history of the visualization, starting from the first paper-based attempts, through the use of the computers to support the process, till the actual emerging field of Progressive Visual Analytics. I will try to clarify why we use visualizations, what were the main goals along the time, what is the relevance of the interaction in complex visual data analysis, what is stable and what is still a topic requiring more investigations, and how my research activities are connected with this growing and evolving topic.
The main research interests of Giuseppe Santucci are in the broad area of Databases and Visualization, including Visual Query languages, Semantic Modeling, and Information Visualization and Visual Analytics that has been challenged in the domains of Information Retrieval, Cyber Security, and Network Medicine. The results of this research activity lead to the publication of about 200 publications with 150 co-authors, including 37 Journal Papers, and about 120 peer-reviewed conferences and workshops.

He has participated as author and speaker at more than 100 editions of international conferences,  he served and continues to serve as PC member of the most relevant conferences of his research areas, including EG/VGTC Conference on Visualization (Eurovis), IEEE Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), EuroVa, Infovis, Information Visualization, VizSec, IVAPP, INTERACT, CD-MAKE, etc.
