Tapestry 2018 Program, Call for Demos

The Tapestry 2018 program is complete, including the three keynotes and eight newly-added short stories. We are now looking for proposals for demos and will send out a call for PechaKucha-style talks to attendees soon, too.

You can find the full program on the Tapestry website. I've mentioned the keynotes before (Mona Chalabi of the Guardian, Matthew Kay of the University of Wisconsin, and Elijah Meeks of Netflix).

We're excited to also have a great selection of awesome speakers and topics:

  • Aritra Dasgupta, As you show, so shall you reap: causes and consequences of bad design in (scientific) visual communication
  • Jason Forrest, The Data Visualizations of W.E.B. Du Bois
  • Kenneth Field, The Cartography of Elections
  • Jonni Walker, Bringing the Genome Home – Bridging the Gap between Conservation and Data Storytelling
  • Kristin Henry, Storytelling with Color
  • Bill Shander, WORDS > VISUALS
  • Alex Wein, Charts as Utterances
  • Nadja Popovich, Personalizing Climate Change

The conference takes place November 29 and 30 at the University of Miami – so if you've been on the fence about going, now is the time to register and book your travel!

To submit a demo proposal, use this demo submission form. We're still working out logistics and aren't sure how many demos we'll be able to accommodate. We should know early next week, so get your proposal in by Friday (November 9)!
