Abstract

The Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) Challenge is a yearly competition designed to push forward visual analytics research through synthetic, yet realistic analytic tasks. In this paper, we discuss the challenges and the successes we have experienced incorporating the VAST Challenge and associated datasets into undergraduate research programs at two liberal arts colleges. We advocate for increased undergraduate participation in this and similar competitions, arguing they afford unique opportunities for positive development in early researchers.
