In a previous post we introduced a new visual search interface.
The theoretical work leading to this interface and a user study evaluating its usefulness have been presented at the 18th International Conference on Information Visualization in Paris.
The paper titled “FacetScape: A Visualization for Exploring the Search Space” received the best paper award for “innovative contribution in terms of originality and concepts and application”.
