VIS Newcomers

12:20 - 12:45 PM
Location: TBA

Organizers: Jagoda Walny and Kate Isaacs

Attending VIS for the first time can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know any other attendees, it’s your first conference, or if you are new to visualization. The VIS Newcomers Meetup is a conference orientation and informal lunch intended for first-time VIS attendees, regardless of experience, from students to practitioners. This allows participants to meet other conference goers and learn various tips for attending VIS. The meetup will start with a short presentation containing conference tips. Following the presentation, meetup attendees will split into small groups led by experienced VIS attendees to continue discussions over lunch and get to know each other.

NOTE: Lunch is not prepaid, each meetup attendee pays for their own lunch.

For more activities outside of the Newcomers Meetup, or if you are unable to attend the meetup, please see Vis Buddies, a Community program bringing together groups of new and old VIS attendees for additional activities outside of this meetup.
