Recent technological advances have led to many large and complex network models in many domains, including social networks, biological networks, webgraphs and software engineering. Visualization can be an effective analysis tool for such networks. Good visualisation reveals the hidden structure of the networks and amplifies human understanding, thus leading to new insights, new findings and possible prediction of the future. However, visualisation of such large and complex networks is very challenging due to scalability and visual complexity.

This project addresses the challenging issues for visualisation and analysis of large and complex networks by designing and evaluating new efficient and effective algorithms for large and complex social networks and biological networks. In particular, integration of good analysis method with good visualisation method will be the key approach to solve the research challenge.
