This special issue of the International Journal of Software and Informatics (IJSI) contains three papers that are based on papers originally presented at The 6th International Symposium on Visual Information Communication and Interaction (VINCI’13) which took place during 17-18 August 2013 in Tianjin, China. After the conference publication, authors were given ten months time until June 2014 to significantly expand their papers with new material and more detail. Papers then underwent twelve months of rigorous and multiple reviews and revisions. The result is this collection of papers that I have the pleasure to present here. This diverse selection offers the reader a sampling of some of the current research directions in information visualisation. I wish to acknowledge the authors for their contribution; the reviewers for their valuable suggestions that helped improve the quality of the papers; and the IJSI editorial staff for their assistance in producing this special issue.
