CHICAGO, 12 October 2015 – Over a thousand data visualization specialists
are expected at the 2015 IEEE Visualization (VIS) conference in Chicago
this month. For one week starting October 25, VIS will host the largest
annual gathering of academics, practitioners, and researchers focused on
making every variety of dataset visually understandable.

After its successful meeting in Paris last year, the international VIS
conference is returning to the United States, where organizers hope to
attract a record number of young practitioners seeking opportunities to
meet and mingle with the senior members and leaders in their field. This
year’s program includes several returning events aimed at encouraging such
interactions, such as the Doctoral Colloquium and Digital Compass
activities, along with a new industry-targeted Practitioner Event.

“This conference is the best opportunity all year for the data
visualization community to see and share the latest advancements, tools,
and techniques,” said Michael E. Papka, VIS 2015 co-chair. “From the
academic to the applied, VIS has something to offer everybody working in
the field today.”

VIS 2015 papers talks and panels are organized into three tracks: *Visual
Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), Information Visualization
(InfoVis)*, and* Scientific Visualization (SciVis). *These main track
offerings and a three-day exhibition begin on Tuesday October 27. Three
co-located symposiums are held on the first two days of VIS 2015:
in Data Science (VDS)*, *Large Data Analysis and Visualization
(LDAV)*, and *Visualization
for Cyber Security (VizSec)*. The VIS offerings on Sunday October 25 and
Monday October 26 also include eight workshops and nine tutorials.

The VIS 2015 Arts Program features a papers track and a two-week public art
exhibition at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s (SAIC’s) LeRoy
Neiman Center, which is located across the street from the conference
venue, the Palmer House Hilton, in Chicago’s downtown Loop district.

IEEE VIS is sponsored by IEEE’s Computer Society. Additional support comes
from academic, industry, and government research organizations. To register
