One of our goals in organizing the Compass activities at the main IEEE VIS conference is to support the next generation of visualization researchers by helping connect beginning and advanced researchers from the scientific visualization, information visualization and visual analytics communities.
The Compass activities are open to all registered IEEE VIS participants, regardless of age and affiliation. The activities are organized by the IEEE VIS Compass Chairs, who can be reached at compass at ieeevis.org.
To register for these events, please visit the corresponding wiki pages listed below to see the event details. You can directly edit the wiki providing you are registered on the wiki. If you have an account from prior years, you are welcome to use the login information. Alternatively, you can send mail to compass at ieeevis.org with the event you want to register for, and we will take care of it for you.

This is an informal, planned lunch where senior members of the VIS community have volunteered one of their lunch slots during the week to meet and socialize with junior researchers. The list of leaders can be found here. You can sign up for these on the wiki, and a physical poster will be available at the conference to remind everyone about your lunch groups. Also, you will have the opportunity to sign up for any open slots.
This is a two hour poster-style session where graduating students and postdocs going on the job market present their work. Please sign up for a poster slot with your name and affiliation. Send this information to the compass chairs. Please remember to bring your poster, CV, and other material you may want to hand to potential employers. Also, feel free to place a slide at the end of any talk you give during the week inviting audience members to come chat with you at this event.
