VAST Challenge 2008                                          

The VAST Challenge is a participation category of the IEEE VAST 2008 Symposium (part of VisWeek 2008).  The VAST Challenge continues in the footsteps of the VAST 2006 and 2007 contests with the purpose of pushing the forefront of visual analytics tools using benchmark data sets and establishing a forum to advance visual analytics evaluation methods. We also hope it will speed the transfer of VA technology from research labs to commercial products, and increase the availability of evaluation techniques.

Please see the official 2008 challenge wesbite for more detailed information.
