AbstractIn this paper, I describe my thesis project for the integration of explicit knowledge from domain experts into the visual analytics process. As base for the implementation of the research project, I will follow the nested model for visualization design and validation. Additionally, I use a problem-driven approach to study knowledge-assisted visualization systems for time-oriented data in the context of real world problems. At first, my research will focus on the IT-security domain where I analyze the needs of malware analysts to support them during their work. Therefore I have currently prepared a problem characterization and abstraction to understand the needs of the domain experts to gain more insight into their workflow. Based on that findings, I am currently working on the design and the implementation of a prototype. Next, I will evaluate these visual analytics methods and finally I will test the generalizability of the knowledgeassisted visual analytics methods in a second domain.
