I’m organizing a very informal running club at EuroVis next week. If you’re attending the conference, don’t forget to bring your running shoes and leave your excuses at home.
This is even less organized than than the VIS running club. I’m not going to have you fill out a form. Instead, just drop me an email (rkosara at my employer’s domain or use the contact form) if you’re interested in joining. This is just so I can send out information about the secret meeting place and time (most likely Monday morning at 7am in the conference hotel lobby).
We’ll aim for about 30-40 mins, for a distance of about 5-8km (3-5mi). Pace will depend on who’s there and how fast they want to go. Don’t be shy about wanting to go slow, we won’t be turning this into a race. The first run will be Monday, and then we’ll figure out what to do from there (probably Wednesday and Friday, plus potentially something longer Friday afternoon or Saturday).
I know you’re wondering: what if I’m not running, will there be opportunities to experience my amazing wisdom and speaking skills? I’m glad you asked.
- I will be part of the closing panel at EuroRVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV Tuesday morning.
- I’m giving the talk for the paper VIMTEX: A Visualization Interface for Multivariate, Time-Varying Geological Data Exploration by Aritra Dasgupta, Robert Kosara, and Luke Gosink on Thursday morning (session FP10)
- I’m giving the Tableau industrial/sponsor talk on Thursday afternoon (session IND2). No, that will not be a sales pitch but there will be actual content and bad jokes. Lots of them.
- Finally, Drew Skau will give the talk on Wednesday morning (session FP6) on our paper with Lane Harrison, An Evaluation of the Impact of Visual Embellishments in Bar Charts. There will be a separate posting about this paper on Sunday.
