CFP: Compass Activities

IEEE VIS 2014 is proud to offer our attendees activities to socialize and
meet fellow VIS researchers through the Compass
<http://ieeevis.org/year/2014/info/volunteer/vis-digital-compass> program.
One of our goals in organizing the Compass activities at the main IEEE VIS
conference is to support the next generation of visualization researchers
by helping connect beginning and advanced researchers from the
scientific visualization, information visualization and visual analytics

The Compass activities are open to all registered IEEE VIS participants,
regardless of age and affiliation. The activities are organized by the IEEE
VIS Compass Chairs, who can be reached at compass at ieeevis.org.

To register for these events, please visit the corresponding wiki pages
listed below to see the event details. You can directly edit the wiki

This is an informal, planned lunch where more senior members in the
