### Please distribute as appropriate

Due to growing participation interest we decided to move the venue to a
larger space at Estrel Hotel Berlin, to the *"La Terrasse" Atrium* (see
photo below). Consequently, and to ensure we order sufficient meals for all
attendees, *we urge you to register up-front *by means of online
registration available through http://vacommunity.org/ieeevpg/reception/. If
the head count is off significantly on the evening of the event, we
otherwise might have to turn away last-minute registration and
attendance requests. We
appreciate your understanding and support.

The IEEE Visualization Pioneers Group (VPG) will like in past years host
its member-exclusive reception on Monday evening of the IEEE VIS conference
week, on *October 22, 2018, starting at 7:00 pm.*
To become a member of the VPG, one simply needs to have at least *20 years
of contributions to some aspect of visualization and visual analytics*, as
e.g. evidenced by their first publication in this space.

If that applies to you and you plan to attend this year's VPG reception at
VIS, we encourage you to join VPG or renew your membership as soon as
possible, so that we can have a more accurate head count for the reception.

For more information on how to join VPG and to attend the VPG reception,
please see http://vacommunity.org/ieeevpg/reception/

On behalf of the VPG operating committee,
