Facilitating Visualization Capacity Building

Organizers and Chairs: Vetria L. Byrd (Purdue University) and Joseph A. Cottam (CREST/Indiana University)
Panel Members: Vetria L. Byrd (Purdue University), Joseph A. Cottam (CREST/Indiana University), Georges Grinstein (University of Massachusetts Lowell), Paul Fishwick (UT Dallas), and Jey Veerasamy (UT Dallas)

Visualization plays an important role in discovery and insight. As a tool, visualization is often times utilized as a light in a sea of data providing insight to large, complex datasets. The scientific community and society at large are the beneficiaries of the utility visualization brings. As more and more data is created and consumed persons with knowledge of the visualization process, applications, methods and techniques will continue to be in demand in all fields with data visualization needs. The purposes of this panel are two-fold: (1) to discuss the need for facilitating visualization capacity building: incorporating visualization early and often into computing and other educational programs to equip students with transferrable skillsets that are in demand in the global workforce and (2) to facilitate a discussion on what knowledge base is needed to build and strengthen visualization capacity of users in visualization application domains.
