IEEE CG&A journal paper invited in IEEE VIS 2015
Our publication Visualization Beyond the Desktop - the next big thing was invited and presented in VIS2015, held in Chicago, IL. Our paper presents a road-map to the future of data visualization, facilitated from a technological metamorphosis in interface design, towards a mixed reality world, that encompasses various sensors, is transparent to the user and can be accessed via the Web.

Visualization is coming of age. With visual depictions being seamlessly integrated into documents, and data visualization techniques being used to understand increasingly large and complex datasets, the term "visualization"’ is becoming used in everyday conversations. But we are on a cusp; visualization researchers need to develop and adapt to today’s new devices and tomorrow’s technology. Today, people interact with visual depictions through a mouse. Tomorrow, they’ll be touching, swiping, grasping, feeling, hearing, smelling, and even tasting data. The next big thing is multisensory visualization that goes beyond the desktop.
