Dietrich Kammer and Mandy Keck from the VANDA project team were involved in conducting the Workshop on Visual Interfaces for Big Data Environments in Industrial Applications at AVI 2018 on 29 May 2018. The workshop was part of the International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI 2018) in Castiglione della Pescaia (Italy). The target of this workshop were Visual Big Data Interfaces in industrial contexts such as e-commerce, e-learning and business intelligence. We addressed interfaces for three different user groups: data scientists, data workers and end users. The workshop was well-attended and offered a forum for discussing the presented position papers as well as general research questions and solutions in industrial applications. The project members from the VANDA team attending the conference enjoyed all of the talks and gained new insights into current visualization research. The proceedings of the workshop including all of the presented papers is available online at the archival website CEUR-WS.org. More Information is available on the workshop website.
