VACCINE (Visual Analytics for Command, Control, and Interoperability Environments) is a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence in Command, Control, and Interoperability. Georgia Tech is a partner school in this Center which is led by Purdue University. The Center's goal is to help this nation's 2.3 million extended homeland security personnel, including first-responders, perform their jobs more effectively by turning massive amounts of data into manageable information through innovative visual analytic techniques. VACCINE researchers are dedicated to creating methods and tools to analyze and manage vast amounts of information for all mission areas of homeland security.

In VACCINE, we strive to create innovative and effective integrated data and visual analytic environments−frameworks, methods, and software−that advance the start-of-the-art in analyzing massive, heterogeneous, incomplete, temporally evolving homeland security data for anticipating, detecting, and responding to DHS mission needs.
