In this talk, I will introduce a few recent works on tree visualization. First I will present a  visualization technique for comparing topological structures and node attribute values of multiple trees. I will further introduce GoTree, a declarative grammar supporting the creation of a wide range of tree visualizations. In the application side, visualization and visual analytics on social media  will be introduced. The data from social media can be considered as graphs or trees with complex attributes. A few approaches using map metaphor for social media data visualization will be discussed.

Geometrically complex shapes play an increasingly important role in contemporary architecture. While digital models involving freeform geometry are easily created, the actual fabrication and construction of such structures remains a challenge. The workshop will brings together architects, engineers, construction managers, fabricators, researchers from the field of architectural geometry, and leading sustainability professionals to discuss, debate and share best practice on design, construction and the built environment.

The Cahn-Hilliard equation is a fourth order parabolic partial differential equation (PDE) that is widely used as a phenomenological model to describe the evolution of interfaces in many practical problems, such as, the microstructure formation in materials, fluid flow, etc. It has been observed in the engineering literature that the stochastic version of the Cahn-Hilliard equation provides a better description of the experimentally observed evolution of complex microstructure.
