Major Bibliography Expansion: Over 500 papers!

The AlgoViz Portal's annotated bibliography now contains over 500 papers! This expansion was made possible by the generous assistance of Guido Rößling, Susan Rodger, Chris Hundhausen, and Ville Karavirta and his colleagues at Aalto University. Each contributed references or BibTeX files for processing. Our bibliography entries now contains much of the existing literature on Algorithm Visualization, plus many additional references on Software Visualization and related topics.

SIGCSE 2010 AlgoViz Survey Results

The AlgoViz team is back from SIGCSE 2010 in Milwaukee, and it was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who visited our booth in the Exhibition or attended our Special Session! One of the many things we did at the conference was run a brief survey about AVs and using them in the classroom. This survey was included in the participant's bag that all registrants received, it was handed out at the booth in the Exhibition, and it was also handed out at the Special Session.
