Welcome to VisWeek 2011!

Professional's Compass

One of our goals in organizing the Compass activities at the main IEEE VisWeek conference is to support the next generation of visualization researchers by helping connect beginning and advanced researchers from the scientific visualization, information visualization and visual analytics communities.

The Compass activities are open to all the VisWeek'11 participants, regardless of age and affiliation. The activities are organized by the Vis'11 Doctoral Colloquium chairs, who can be reached at doctoral_coll@visweek.org.
