2016 Mid-Year Meeting - RESCHEDULED

Visualization Committee Members and Friends,

Our mid-year meeting will be held in Washington, D.C. on June 6th at the Keck Center.  http://www.trb.org/AboutTRB/FacilitiesandDirections.aspx

This year’s meeting will be a little different than previous years—following the approach of a day long visualization symposium that includes our business meeting.  We are encouraging you to reach out to state and federal partners to invite them to attend this meeting. 

This day-long meeting will include the following:

  • Keynote Presentations from Industry Thought Leaders
  • Lightning talks from members, friends, and invited guests
  • Targeted breakout meetings/presentations for each subcommittee (CIM/VDC, Gaming and Participatory Simulation, Systems Performance, and Symposium)
  • A Formal Business Meeting

 

A formal agenda and registration information will be distributed shortly.  If you or your organization wants to be included in any of the lightning talks, please send a short abstract with supporting visuals to Michael Pack (packml@umd.edu) for consideration. 

  

Sincerely,

Michael, Pat, and Frank
