3rd Biennial Two-Day Broadening Participation in Visualization Workshop (BPViz’18)

 | 

Purdue University and University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
June 13 – 14, 2018

****** Accepting Applications ******

Visualization plays a significant role in the exploration and understanding of data across all disciplines with a universal goal: gaining insight into the complex relationships that exist within the data. The need to diversify a field with such far reaching influences is imperative. The purpose of the workshop is to provide hands-on experience visualizing data, and foster opportunities for networking and mentoring between underrepresented groups and experts in the field of visualization.

The 2018 CRA-W/CDC CADENS two-day Discipline Specific Workshop aims to broaden participation of women and members of underrepresented groups in the field of data visualization. The two-day workshop will include demos, a poster presentation by participants, panel presentation by visualization professionals, keynote speakers, networking,  mentoring activities and scholarly exchange of ideas. The workshop, co-located at Purdue University and University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and scheduled for June 13-14, 2018, will include a trip to the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).  Limited travel awards are available. For full consideration for travel awards, applications must be received by 11:59 PM (EST)Friday, January 19, 2018.

We are regrettably restricted to reimbursing/providing travel support to only U.S. Citizens. We recognize this is a serious constraint, but it is a federal regulation on the funding. To address interest from a larger community to participate, BPViz’18 Organizers are seeking external sponsorship for potential workshop participants who are not eligible for funding described above. If you are a non-US Citizen and would like to be considered for travel and participant support to attend the workshop you are encouraged to apply. You should indicate your citizenship and indicate you are interested in travel support, based availability of funding, in your online application. There is no guarantee of sponsorship; however, if the sponsorship becomes available, and there are slots available you will be considered for travel support. For full consideration, all application materials must be received by 11:59 PM (EST) Friday, January 19, 2018.

Persons with their own travel funds wishing to participate in the workshop are encouraged to attend the conference and workshop.

All persons with an interest in data visualization should apply.
