Tamara MunznerWe are happy to announce that Tamara Munzner has accepted our invitation to give a keynote lecture at BioVis 2014. The preliminary title of her talk is "Visualization Analysis and Design for Biology".



Tamara Munzner is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, in the research area of information visualization. She has been active in visualization research since 1991, and has published over fifty papers and book chapters. Before earning a PhD from Stanford in 2000, she was a technical staff member at the NSF-funded Geometry Center at the University of Minnesota for four years. Afterwards, she was a research scientist at the Compaq Systems Research Lab from 2000 to 2002. She co-chaired InfoVis in 2003 and 2004 and EuroVis in 2009 and 2010. She is currently on the InfoVis Steering Committee and the VIS Executive Committee, was a founding member of the BioVis Steering Committee from 2010 through 2013, and was a Member At Large of the Executive Committee of the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee from 2004-2009. She hasconsulted for companies including Silicon Graphics, Microsoft, and early-stage startups. Her research interests include the development, evaluation, and characterization of information visualization systems and techniques from both problem-driven and technique-driven perspectives. She has worked on problem-driven visualization projects in a broad range of application domains, including genomics, evolutionary biology, large-scale system administration, web loganalysis, computational linguistics, and geometric topology. Her technique-driven interests include dimensionality reduction and graph drawing.
