About us

In 2011 professors Milene S. Silveira and Isabel H. Manssour began the first project of Social Networks data visualization. Professor Roberto Tietzmann joined the research team at the end of 2013. Initially the project was named as DaVis (Data Visualization) and over the years several undergraduate, masters and PhD students from both FAMECOS (School of Communications) and the FACIN (School of Computer Science), participated in the project. In 2017, with the increase of the team, and with the equipment acquired over the years, the DaVInt lab (Data Visualization and Interaction) was created. It is physically located in Room 654 of Building 32 of PUCRS. We now have 6 desktop computers, 1 notebook and 1 server, as well as tablets and cameras, and a multidisciplinary team formed by communication, administration, engineering and information technology students.

Information visualization, computer vision and image processing, interactive digital narratives, and end-user development are the main areas of research of the projects under development in the lab.
