Workshop Goals & Agenda:

This 1.5 day, invitation-only workshop will bring together programmers and power users of major visual analytics/science of science tools. Key goals of the workshop are
  • improved integration/collaboration between existing tools/developers,
  • the preparation of an international competition that inspires and empowers many to contribute algorithm and tool plugins, and
  • discussion of joint funding applications.

Format is a combination brief presentations, brainstorming sessions, and hands-on sessions--to be finalized when participants are confirmed.


Participants, please fill out this PR^2 and send to Samantha Hale (ude.anaidni@elahjs) by October 18!


Please see here about setting up the Development Environment.
