I gave a Gephi tutorial at the ICWSM conference in Barcelona. The International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media is a unique forum that brings together researchers from the disciplines in computer science, linguistics, communication, and the social sciences. The broad goal of ICWSM is to increase understanding of social media in all its incarnations.

Visual Analysis of Complex Networks (VACN) Workshop 2011

This workshop has invited international participation from five teams who develop leading software that supports graph visualization and analysis. The morning consists of presentations, and, in the afternoon, the teams have visualized a common graph data set which will be handed to them blindly on the day of competition.

This presentation has also been shown at the 2nd Data Driven Dynamical Networks workshop and at the Modelling Knowledge Dynamics 2010 workshop.

International Design Biennale 2010

Exhibition and round table at the Saint-Étienne International Design Biennale, 21 Nov 2010.

Holding from 20 November to 5 December, it is a unique event in the domain of design, due to the exhibitions shown as well as the diversity of its attendees. The Biennial democratizes design and makes it accessible to all kinds of audiences, proving that this creative discipline can take many forms, and is often driven by human aspects, including its uses by humans.

Online Information 2009

Interactive project presented in conference at Online Information 2009.

The diseasome website is a disease/disorder relationships explorer and a sample of an innovative map-oriented scientific work. Built by a team of researchers and engineers, it uses the Human Disease Network dataset and allows intuitive knowledge discovery by mapping its complexity. The website is an invitation to think about the benefits of networks exploration but above all it tries to outline future designs of scientific information systems.
