About the VizAssist project
The VizAssist project is conducted by Fatma Bouali (University of Lille 2, and University François Rabelais of Tours, France) and Gilles Venturini (University François Rabelais of Tours, France) with the contribution of several people:
Noureddine Saifi, MSc student, 2008: first implementation of the Visualization model and of an initial matching algorithm,
Abdelheq Guettala, PhD student, and Christiane Guinot, 2009/2013: second version of VizAssist with an implementation in Java and with several visualizations in Java3D. This version was off-line and it integrated a first Interactive Genetic Algorithm,
Jean Debarochez, Remy Pradignac, MSc students, 2013/2014: development of the third version of VizAssist and improvement of several functionalities. This is the first on-line version!
Yann-Thomas Le Moigne, MSc student, 2014/2015, who made great improvements to the on-line version.
We address our special thanks and gratitude to the D3js creators and to all the D3js community, and especially to the developers who are sharing their code. In VizAssist, the code of most of the visualizations was adapted from existing on-line versions.
This project was partially supported by the Région Centre with the FDTE project.
