Community Event Announcements


This year we have the following (new and returning) community-building
activities that we'd like to invite you to participate in:

Flyer posting for positions:

If you have positions available, and cannot attend VIS, send your flyers to
community at ieeevis.org as a PDF (at least a week prior to VIS).

Asynchronous Job Fair (AJF):

A way to help connect job seekers and employers over the course of VIS. If
you are job hunting upload your CV in the registration form at least a week
prior to VIS and grab an “I’m job hunting!” ribbon at the conference
registration. If you are hiring grab an “I’m hiring!" ribbon at the
conference and add your fliers on the corkboard.

=> This year we are also organizing a Job Fair meetup, to bring together
job seekers and employers in one venue to trade CV and employment


Like last year, we will match together new and returning VIS attendees with
similar interests. Register using the registration form (at least a week
prior to VIS).

=> We'll be holding again a Newcomers meetup to help new attendees navigate

Good Food Meets Good Science:

Tired of bad food? Didn’t have something local when attending the
conference and regretted it? Want the good scientific discussions to
continue around a local specialty of the area? This meetup is designed to
take participants to a restaurant serving good food that is a local
specialty of the area. We aim for an accessible price so that anyone can
attend. People can sign up (see below) on a first come first served basis.
The audience should bring an interesting scientific topic to discuss at
dinner. An appetite for local cuisine is also highly recommended.

Registration required:


Data Stories Meetup:

Are you a fan of the Data Stories Podcast or are you interested in learning
more about it?

With information+ and IEEE VIS in town, we did not want to miss this
opportunity to meet up with our listeners! It will be a casual event with
lots of opportunities to chat and discuss about the podcast, data
analytics, information visualization, design, …

Registration required:

Don't forget to grab a "years in attendance" sticker and badge bling at the
registration area!

Thank you for helping us build the VIS community:
