Workshop: Visualization on the Web – Join Me at VisWeek

Posted to News  |  Nathan Yau

Visualization on the Web is growing, but a lot of the really good stuff is just sitting around on someone’s computer. So to get a discussion going about how we can get more visualization out there – theory and application – Robert Kosara of Eager Eyes, Andrew Vande Moere from information aesthetics, and myself are heading up a workshop at VisWeek in October. It’s in Atlantic City.

We’ll share some of our experiences, but mainly we want to know what’s on your mind. Submit your one-page position statement and tell us about your experiences, propose discussion topics, or ask questions that you’re wondering about. We’ll review the topics and you’ll hear from us by the end of July. Get your submissions in by July 17.
