Tutorial 1
Information Visualization, Visual Data Mining, and Its Application to Drug Design (Full day) [proposal]

Georges Grinstein, University of Massachusetts at Lowell
Daniel Keim, ATT Research Labs
Matthew Ward, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

This tutorial will provide the necessary background to understand the issues in the development and usage of visualization integrated with data mining and knowledge discovery systems with focus on drug discovery. We will provide a brief history and overview of data visualization and data mining techniques and systems, discuss specific examples of integrated visualization and data mining, and examine both sample commercial and academic drug discovery systems that integrate visualization and data mining. Videotapes and demonstrations will also be shown.
