Keynote: Singularity, Michele Lanza

Abstract. More details will be announced soon.

Bio. Michele Lanza is a full professor at the Faculty of Informatics of USI, Lugano. In 2017 he founded the Software Institute, of which he has been director since then. In 2004 he founded the REVEAL Research Group. Prof. Lanza's research interests are in software engineering, his research passion is software visualization. Prof. Lanza co-authored over 200 journal and conference publications and the book Object-Oriented Metrics in Practice. His activitites span various international software engineering research communities. He has served on the program committees of ICSE, FSE, ICSME, ICPC, MSR and many other conferences, and as program co-chair of SANER 2016, ICSM 2010, VISSOFT 2009, MSR 2008, IWPSE 2007, and MSR 2007. He was keynote speaker at MSR 2010, CBSOFT/SBES 2011, BENEVOL 2011, CSMR 2013, and SCAM 2016. He is board member of CHOOSE (Swiss Group for Object-Oriented Systems and Environments), and vice-president of the Moose association.

Capstone: Eye Tracking in (Software) Visualization, Daniel Weiskopf

Abstract. There is a growing interest in eye tracking as a research method and technology in many communities, including the visualization research community, but also in computer graphics, human-computer interaction, applied perception, psychology, or cognitive science. Progress in hardware and the reduction of costs for eye tracking devices have made this analysis technique accessible to a large population of researchers. Recording the observer’s gaze can reveal how dynamic graphical displays are visually accessed and which information are being processed. However, the analysis and visualization of spatiotemporal gaze data become challenging factors in this emerging discipline. I discuss the relationship between eye tracking and visualization from two angles: (1) How can visualization facilitate the analysis of gaze recordings? (2) And how can eye tracking help understand how users work with visualization systems? In particular, I will relate some general observations about evaluating visualizations to specific needs and applications relevant for software visualization.

Bio. Daniel Weiskopf is a professor and co-director of the Visualization Research Center (VISUS) and acting director of the Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems (VIS), both at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. He received his Dr. rer. nat. (PhD) degree in physics from the University of Tübingen, Germany (2001), and the Habilitation degree in computer science at the University of Stuttgart, Germany (2005). His research interests include information and scientific visualization, visual analytics, eye tracking, computer graphics, and special and general relativity. He is spokesperson of the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center SFB/Transregio 161 “Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing” (www.sfbtrr161.de), which includes eye tracking as a quantification approach, and he is co-initiator of the workshop series on Eye Tracking and Visualization (ETVIS, www.etvis.org), technical program co-chair of ACM ETRA 2020, and full paper co-chair of ACM ETRA 2021 and 2022.
