IEEE VIS 2014
9-14 November 2014
We invite you to submit proposals for informal meetups on scientific
visualization, information visualization, visual analytics, application
areas, or related topics.
Meetups: Meetups (previously known as BOFs or Birds of a Feather) are an
excellent forum to discuss a wide range of topics related to visualization.
For example, if you are an experienced researcher, consider submitting a
proposal to share your knowledge in an informal setting with conference
participants. Proposals devoted to a particular discipline's methods and
cross disciplinary proposals are both welcome. For example, some recent
meetup meetings included opportunities to meet and discuss topics related
to blogging about visualization, the BioVis contest, and the connection
between art and science.
VIS 2014 is eager to expand its meetup sessions and will consider proposals
for each day and evening of the conference, given room availability.
VIS2014 meetups are public and open to all attendees. Meetup organizers
need to be registered at the conference for at least the day of the meetup.
Proposal format: A meetup proposal should include a title, a brief
description of the topic to be addressed, and a list of prospective
attendees. The proposal should be no longer than two pages in length.
Meetup proposals should be sent to the Meetup Chairs at meetups at ieeevis.org.
Impromptu meetups: We also encourage impromptu meetups to be organized
during the conference itself. Please contact the chairs by email or in
person during the conference in order to secure a conference room and time
Networking: To find other people interested in VIS 2014 meetups on social
media, please use the hashtag #vis2014meetup.
IMPORTANT DATES: Deadline: Sep. 26th 2014.
SUBMISSIONS: Submissions should be emailed to meetups at ieeevis.org
