We're co-organizing a workshop on Multimodal Interaction for Data Visualization at the AVI 2018 Conference in Italy in May.

In Fall 2017 we were awarded a new NSF grant on Natural Visualization.

We won the VAST 2017 Test of Time Award for our 2007 paper introducing Jigsaw.

We had multiple papers and posters at the 2017 IEEE VIS Conference in Phoenix.

We presented 3 short papers at EuroVis '17 in Barcelona.

This past spring Ramik completed his PhD thesis about data visualization on tablet devices this spring.

We released a beta version of a web-based version of Jigsaw called WebJigsaw tool for all to try out.
