VisWeek '12 Lunch with the National Labs and Industry

This is a one day event where vis researchers and practitioners have an opportunity to go for lunch with Industry and National Labs researchers. The table-leaders pick the topic they would like to chat over (could be anything from "recruiting" to "what's the best way to..." to "looking for partners for such and such project" to "what's it like to work as a practitioner", or simply a group of people joining together for "visualization networking" or "solving problems" or even "how to navigate visweek"). You pay for your own lunch. Please sign up with your name and affiliation.

To sign up, click on Edit, enter your Compass username and password (see your Visweek registration confirmation email), and add your name below.

When choosing your meeting point, please keep in mind that there are: 23 VAST, 24 InfoVis, 17 SciVis = 64 total posters.
When choosing a table, please be aware that we try to keep groups below 4 members each — most restaurants have trouble accommodating larger parties. :-) If you are trying to join a group that already has 4 members (including the leader), please contact the leader first and ask for permission to join the group.
