Call for Participation

  
BPViz is designed to bring together persons with an interest in visualization to: (1) present work-in-progress, (2) engage with others in the field, (3) obtain feedback from visualization experts, (4) discuss research and career interests, and (4) build a community of persons interested in broadening participation and inclusion across all domains where data visualization drives analysis and discovery. An additional goal of the workshop is increase the participation of underrepresented minorities and underrepresented groups and disciplines in data visualization and increase representation of these groups at IEEE Vis. Travel expenses (flight or mileage), meals and lodging costs will be provided for a limited number of workshop participants to support the participation of underrepresented undergraduates from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Minority Serving Institutions (MSI), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), Tribal Colleges, and 2-year institutions and community colleges. Persons who would like to be considered for travel support should indicate so when applying. For consideration for travel support application materials must be received by 11:59 PM (EST) Friday, January 19, 2018.

The workshop will include a half day of invited talks and presentations of scholarly work on broadening participation in visualization, with additional events and training for faculty and undergraduates interested in data visualization.

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 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.
