Email Archive Visualization Workshop

June 2, 2005

The growth of email archives presents challenges and opportunities to librarians, scholars, historians, forensics experts, and intelligence analysts.  To respond to the growing need, software tools are being developed by human-computer interaction researchers, computer scientists, and information systems designers. To encourage innovation and exchange strategies, we will hold a one-day workshop of leading researchers on visualization and analysis techniques for large email archives.  Issues for which these techniques may contribute to solutions include: gaining access while protecting privacy, understanding temporal patterns, recognizing relationships by social network analysis, integrating with other information sources, discovering stories and nuggets, and identifying gaps.

Organizers: Doug Oard, Adam Perer and Ben Shneiderman

We appreciate the generous support of IBM and Microsoft for this workshop.
