VisWeek 2011 is the premier forum for visualization advances for academia, government, and industry, bringing together researchers and practitioners with a shared interest in tools, techniques, technology and theory. The week is organized around three separate conferences:
Throughout the week a variety of papers, panels, workshops, tutorials, and posters, will be presented for all three conferences, along with industry exhibitions, interactive demonstrations, a doctoral colloquium, and many impromptu birds-of-a-feather meetings among researchers and experts from the visualization community attending the conference. VisWeek 2011 Call for Participation posters can be downloaded here in different formats: A4, Letter, or Tabloid. Distribute them and invite people to participate!
There are also two IEEE symposia taking place during VisWeek 2011: the 1st IEEE Symposium on Large-Scale Data Analysis and Visualization, and the 1st IEEE Symposium on Biological Data Visualization.
In 2011, IEEE VisWeek comes to the beautiful city of Providence, RI, the capital city of the smallest state in the country, but packed with exciting entertainment, shopping and food options. A lively downtown area just steps away from the conference hotel, a multi-cultural mix of many award-winning restaurants in several neighbourhoods all in walking distance, a wonderful and elaborate river-walk area for relaxing, and a vibrant art-scene, are all settled among scores of immaculately preserved homes from the Colonial, Federal, Greek Revival and Victorian eras. Come join us!
