Events with IEEE VIS 2015

You probably heard that IEEE VIS 2015 is being hosted in Chicago this year. It’s one of the largest, premiere data visualization events in the world.

So we’re very excited to announce that Chicago Data Visualization Members will be able to attend some jointly-hosted meetup events during IEEE VIS 2015. CDVG, University of Illinois at Chicago’s Electronic Visualization Laboratory, and the IEEE BioVis special interest group will be holding a joint meetup looking at biology and bioinformatics data visualization on Tuesday, October 17 at 12:30pm. The event will be held at Palmer House Hilton in Salon B. You must register for the meetup to attend.

You are also invited to the VIS Arts Program (VISAP), which showcases innovative artwork and research that explores the increasingly prominent intersections between art and visualization. The opening of VISAP will take place at 7:00pm on October 27th at the LeRoy Neiman Center at the School of the Art Institute. Registration is available for the event through the end of October 26th (central time).

Please register for these events as there is limited attendance and will require mandatory registration.

A very special thanks to the folks at UIC’s EVL who helped put this together, in particular, Maxine Brown, Angus Forbes and so many others helped coordinate these events. We’re very gracious for their eagerness to work together.
