Proposals may be submitted for Birds-Of-A-Feather (BOF) gatherings on visualization methods, application areas or related topics. BOFs are an excellent forum to discuss a wide range of topics related to scientific and information visualization. For example, if you are an experienced researcher, consider submitting a proposal to share your knowledge in an informal setting with conference participants. Proposals devoted to a particular discipline's methods and cross disciplinary proposals are both welcome. Some recent BOF meetings included opportunities to meet and discuss topics related to blogging about visualization, the BioVis contest and the connection between art and science.
VisWeek 2012 is eager to expand its BOF sessions and will consider proposals for each day and evening of the conference, given room availability. VisWeek BOFs are public and open to all attendants. BOF organizers need to be registered at the conference for at least the day of the BOF.
A BOF proposal should include a title, a brief description of the topic to be addressed and identify prospective attendees. The proposal should be no longer than 2 pages in length. Birds-of-a-Feather Proposals should be sent jointly to Nathalie Henry Riche, Xiaoyu Wang and Zoë J. Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
