Research in human-computer interaction is dominated by institutions characterized by a deep involvement in the evolution of the field, and their ability to successfully network and collaborate with others. Network analysis and information flow visualization are useful techniques to help understand their influence and centrality. We use data visualizations of publication data to examine how collaborative research institutions are with each other in HCI research.
