Title: Some reflections on developments of dynamic and interactive graphics in the 1980s-1990s

In the 1980s and 1990s many creative statisticians and computer scientists sought to use advances in computers, display devices, and user interfaces to extend data exploration capabilities. There were many challenges and questions to answer. With large sample sizes, how could overplotting in scatterplots be addressed and smoothes be quickly computed? With multivariate data, what dimension reducing algorithms, search algorithms, visual encodings, animations, and analyst interactions would be helpful in revealing patterns? This talk addresses a few selected examples. One example, chosen for novelty, is a 1980s 4-D visualization system with features such as hyperplane slicing and 4-D density masking.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
