SCI Visualization Journal Club

Mission Statement

This group aims to facilitate students and faculty knowledge of state-of-the-art techniques in all areas of Visualization (scientific visualization, information visualization, and visual analytics). To accomplish this, as a group we will read and discuss seminal works, best papers, and other papers of interest.




Held weekly on Wednesday at 10 a.m. in Halvorsen Conference Room (WEB 4640). Drop-ins welcome.
