Abstract : For decision-making in the areas of: network discovery; simulation and prediction supporting adaptive operations, political effects, public health and safety, and security issues; and uncertain environments and abstract concepts, one needs to understand how to visualise the changes taking place within a network (dynamics) and the trends within that change. Group objectives included to compare the utility of various interactive visualisation styles for providing the user knowledge of the dynamics of a network and subsequent trends and to produce a report highlighting interactive visualisation methods that facilitate and make more effective the analysis of network dynamics in applications such as netcentric warfare, counterterrorism including bioterrorism, peacekeeping, public security, and peace support operations. Anticipated security benefits include a better understanding of how interactive visualisation should be used to discover, simulate and predict network dynamics, and how such interactive visualisation may aid military command decision-making, public health and security operations as well as intelligence network analysis tasks.
