We are recruiting partner sites for the following 2013 Summer School courses:
This two-day training will cover all aspects of visualizing data from a broad variety of domains. We will kick off the training with an introduction to visualization. We will follow by teaching best practices when dealing with diverse data (abstract and spatial), demonstrating a variety of methods and techniques on those data sets, and demonstrating a range of freely available software. We will take real world problems for which visualization is needed and take the attendees through the process of visualizing this data and gaining insight.
Each VSCSE course includes up to 20 satellite sites that partcipate in the course through high-definition video conferencing. These remote sites typically host 25 - 35 students, and are a way for the host institutions to quickly enhance their computational science and engineering capacity and community by making each course accessible to a number of people from the surrounding area. We also ask that local sites host some out-of-town students, providing a chance for students to network with people who have similar interests.
We ask that our partners provide people who can play each of the following roles to make sure each course is successful:
In addition to these roles, we ask that our partner sites:
We will extend invitations to selected sites by the end of June. We will be selecting sites based on geographic distribution, site capacity, past registration numbers, and size of local community. In addition, we will create a balance of new and returning sites, and institutional diversity.
