The Data Analysis and Visualization Research Group (DBVIS) at the University of Konstanz focuses on delivering innovative and high quality research in the fields of Information Visualization, Knowledge Discovery, and Visual Analytics. The research at the University of Konstanz includes all aspects of the data analysis process including the development of novel visualization, interaction, and data analysis techniques. A major issue is to develop scalable visual analytics techniques that tightly couple automated and visual techniques in order to support decision making in large and complex information spaces. In this context, the DBVIS group proposed a number of sophisticated techniques for various application scenarios. For instance, the group successfully developed techniques to monitor high volume data for network security, techniques for the analysis of news streams, and, in collaboration with the University of Charlotte, visual analytics techniques for multimedia data streams. The group has unique competencies, demonstrated in numerous top-class conferences and journal publications.
