We have two papers in InfoVis, one in VAST, and one in BELIV coming up at VIS 2014 in Paris.

In June, John gave the Capstone lecture (replay, slides) at the EuroVis 2014 Conference.

We presented a paper about our work on touch interfaces for infovis on tablet computers at AVI 2014 in Lake Como, Italy in May.

We had papers about Ploceus, the evolution of Jigsaw, and our study of visual analytics for intelligence analysis appear in three of the 2014 issues of the Information Visualization journal.

John was named to be an IEEE Fellow in Jan. 2014.
