2017 Tapia Conference

Visualization Research and Careers

Thursday, September 21, 2017 — 4:00PM - 5:00PM

Visualization plays a significant role in the exploration of data across all disciplines. Visualization tools and techniques have the ultimate goal of understanding the complex relationships that exist within data. Join us at this Birds of Feather session to learn about Information and Scientific Visualization. We’ll go over useful topics such as learning resources, design principles, applications (Gephi, ParaView), languages (D3, Processing), conferences (IEEE VisWeek, XSEDE, VIZBI, BioVis), and public data resources. Come learn about the computational visualization skills that can prepare you for careers as a researcher or practitioner in areas such as Human Computer Interaction, High Performance Computing, bioinformatics, imaging, data science, analytics, and more. We will also describe diversity in visualization opportunities such as Research Experience for Undergraduates as well as the Broadening Participation in Visualization (BPViz) Workshop.
