New Project Granted by Norrköping Fund
Our proposal, Immersive Analytics for Urban Heat: from Visual Exploration to Decision Support in Norrköping Municipality, has been granted funding from the Norrköping Fund on Monday, June 13, 2022. The research project is concerned with researching the use of immersive environments for the visualization and exploration of the appearance and effect of (extreme) weather events in urban areas with a focus on mapping and understanding the occurrence of urban heat in Norrköping municipality. Several partners will be involved in this work coming from several institutions: LiU (Katerina Vrotsou (PI), Andreas Kerren, Tina Neset, Lotten Wiréhn), SMHI (Jorge Humberto Amorim), Norrköping Municipality (Merja Willman, Josefine Petersson), and Linnaeus University (Aris Alissandrakis, Nico Reski).
Open PostDoc Position in Information Visualization and Visual Analytics
We have one open PostDoc position to be filled in the area of Information Visualization / Visual Analytics with a focus on visual analytics for enhancing quality and trust in genome-wide expression clustering and annotation! More information about prerequisites, merits and the application procedure at LiU is provided here under the reference number LiU-2022-01774. Questions should be addressed via email to Prof. Andreas Kerren.
Deadline: May 20, 2022
WASP and DDLS Joint Call for Research Projects
We are very happy to announce that our proposal, Visual Analytics for Enhancing Quality and Trust in Genome-wide Expression Clustering and Annotation, has been granted funding in this call. The bridging research project will be funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation and will have both a rapid start-up phase and a high potential impact. It will explore novel ideas enabled by forming a multidisciplinary team spanning across the DDLS and WASP domains. Two postdocs, one from the WASP community and one from the life science community will work together on this joint project that will be lead by Prof. Andreas Kerren (LiU, WASP) and Prof. Mathias Uhlén (KTH, DDLS). For more information on the 15 accepted projects, we refer to the WASP News item.
