Course objectives
The course should extend the knowledge of students in visualization and its specific usage in different domains. The students will understand the principles of the main visualization disciplines - information visualization, scientific visualization, and visual analysis. These will be demonstrated on real application scenarios from different fields - medical, molecular, environmental visualization, etc.
By presenting and analyzing the latest papers in this field, the students will obtain a solid overview of the current research topics in visualization.
