    Stephen G. Eick is the Technical Manager of the Data Visualization Research Group at Bell Laboratories, a division of Lucent Technologies. His research focuses on extracting the information latent in large databases using novel interactive visualizations. This involves inventing the techniques, developing the software tools, and building an infrastructure to mine knowledge from corporate databases so that it can be put to competitive and commercial advantage. His research group has developed a suite of visualizations including tools for visualizing abstract networks, software source code, text corpora, log files, program slices, and relational databases. He is particularly interested in visualizing databases associated with large software projects, networks, and building high-interaction user interfaces. Eick received a B.A from Kalamazoo College (1980), M.A. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison (1981), and Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Minnesota (1985). Eick co-organized the first Information Visualization Symposium (October 1995) and presented tutorials on perception at SIGGRAPH ’94 & ’95 and a software visualization tutorial at Visualization ’93 Conference.
