1:20pm Room B - Strategies in Visualizing Networks

Network data models entities and the relationships between them. Examples include social networks, biological pathways, and computational dependency graphs. Visualizing networks can provide context to the data, verify or refute assumptions about structure, or help communicate processes. However, network visualization can quickly become cluttered and difficult to interpret. In this talk, I will go over tools and strategies for visualizing networks, with examples from my research in debugging and optimizing computer programs.
