Following the success of the first UKVAC Visual Analytics Summer School (camp) in 2010, Middlesex University will be hosting the second event in this series from 3rd to the 8th September at their Hendon campus in London.

This residential event is joint funded by the US Department of Homeland Security via the US Centre for Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments (VACCINE) and the UK Home Office.

Aim and Scope of the Summer School

The summer school will provide a multidisciplinary grounding on this emerging and important area of visual analytics. Over a six day programme delegates will learn about visual analytics problems, techniques and solutions from leading international experts in the field. Teaching will be via classroom delivery, discussion and hands-on experience with visual analytic tools. Delegates will be set a group investigation and design challenge which will evolve throughout the week. The summer school will include a lively social programme.
