Data Visual and Immersive Analytics at the University of Konstanz. General Chair of this
international forum is Falk Schreiber, project investigator of Transregio
project D04. Besides, there are further

About the BDVA 2018
Visual Analytics plays a major role in the analysis and decision-making processes for science,
industry, and government organisations. It is one of the best ways we have for making sense of big
and/or complex data sets. Reflecting its history of encouraging research into less-traditional
approaches to visual analytics, this year BDVA has broadened scope to include the emerging field of
Immersive Analytics. Immersive Analytics aims to support data understanding and decision making
everywhere and by everyone, working individually or collaboratively. It aims to make embodied tools
that are intuitive, engaging, and appropriately utilise all sensory channels. This may be achieved
through the use of immersive virtual environment technologies, data physicalisation, natural
interfaces or responsive analytics, but is not tied to the use of any particular technology.
