The IEEE VGTC Visualization Pioneers Group (VPG) is a part of IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee (VGTC). VPG is a networking, mentoring, advisory, and philanthropic organization. We gather yearly at a reception to meet old friends, make new ones, enjoy food and drinks, and listen to a distinguished speaker from the visualization community. The annual reception will be held during the IEEE VIS week.
Visualization Pioneers are passionate advocates of all aspects of visualization. We share our opinions with the VGTC to help shape our future direction.
Each year VPG invites a distinguished member of the vis community to present on a topic of their choosing.
