Invitation for the Canadian Visual Analytics School (CANVAS) 2014

The Vancouver Institute for Visual Analytics (VIVA) invites you to come to the Canadian Visual Analytics School (CANVAS) 2014! CANVAS 2014 will be held at UBC from July 28 – August 1. It is a 5-day conference-esque event where you can network + learn the newest regarding VA research & deployment.

The initial three days (Mon-Wed) of CANVAS 2014 will include keynote presentations, project/research reports and tutorials relevant to visual analytics. Also, in the afternoon hours, 24 selected CANVAS students* will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on workshops at UBC’s Visual Analytics lab, led by experienced mentors. (*24 students will be selected from all student registrations to participate as CANVAS students, based on their applications. If you only can attend the talks in the morning, you can still sign up as a registered participant. You can write a short note in the last box in the registration form to let us know your situation.)

The final two days (Thu-Fri) will be an Industry-University Partnership Workshop, with visual analytics related seminars by invited industry partners and small group discussions. This workshop is aimed at generating ideas for future visual analytics collaborative projects between industry and academia.
