Visual Parameter Space Exploration in Time and Space


Many domains make use of models or simulations of real-world processes. They are used, e.g., for analysis or optimization. Such models/simulations often require parameters to work, and analysts want to assess or explore their influence and importance. Parameters can be anything from simple on/off flags to complex objects, such as lighting type and posisition in a scene.


Provide a systematic overview of this research area. Among other topics, it can cover visualization and interaction approaches, analyis questions and process, guidance and algorithmic methods to support parameter space exploration. Focus on works where at least one of input, parameters or output have an intrinsic temporal and/or spatial dimension.
