Sathiyanarayanan, M., Turkay, C. ORCID: 0000-0001-6788-251X & Dykes, J. ORCID: 0000-0002-8096-5763 (2018). Visualising E-mail Communication to Improve E-discovery. Poster presented at the VIS 2018, 21-26 Oct 2018, Berlin, Germany.


Electronic Discovery (E-discovery) is an investigation domain where electronic data is searched to find information and use it as an evidence in a legal case. One of the investigation areas in this domain is electronic mail (E-mail) communication. Lawyers and analysts involved in this activity are usually presented with a large E-mail dataset to manually comb through information in order to discover key information they need, expending large amounts of time, energy, effort and money in the process. We design and develop an interactive visualisation that will support our collaborators in an organisation specialising in E-discovery to unravel the multi-faceted information in the given communicated E-mails to find/discover pertinence, key information, points of interest (PoIs) and to develop evidence through which legal cases can be built.
