From June 6 th to 10 th, researchers, practitioners, and industry partners met in Groningen (Netherlands) at the visualization symposium EuroVis 2016 to exchange about their current developments, visions, and ideas for future trends in all areas of visualization. During these five days, the participants of this international symposium – among them a group of SFB-TRR 161 scientists – discussed their newest results and challenges.

Alexander Jäger, PhD student in project INF of SFB-TRR 161 at the University of Konstanz, presented the paper Lessons on Combining Topology and Geography — Visual Analytics for Electrical Outage Management with a new idea that might help operators of electical networks to eliminate electrical power outages. This collaborative work with Daniel Keim (head of TRR project A03) from the University of Konstanz, Sebastian Mittelstädt from Siemens AG, and Daniela Oelke, Sonja Sander, Axel Platz and Gies Bouwman from Alliander Netherlands, got a special attention by the community and was honored by the reviewers with the Best Paper Award of EuroVA – an EuroVis workshop on Visual Analytics.

Moreover, the SFB-TRR 161 supported the keynote of EuroVA by Prof. Sara Irina Fabrikant with the title Moving Visual Analytics of Movement. As head of the Geography Department at the University of Zurich (UZH) and of the Geographic Information Visualization and Analysis Group (GIVA), Prof. Fabrikant presented her ongoing empirical research on their way to establish usable and useful geovisual analytics tools for the increasingly mobile information society.
