We are excited to welcome Alberto Cairo (https://twitter.com/albertocairo), the author of The Functional Art: An Introduction to Information Graphics (http://www.thefunctionalart.com/) and the Director of the Visualization Program at the University of Miami's Center for Computational Science, to discuss visualization with this group.
Dr Cairo is one of the leading writers on the topic of data visualization and widely known in the data visualization and data-driven journalism communities. He organizes a highly popular data visualization Massive Open Online Course. In 2011, he organized the first journalism MOOC in conjunction with the University of Texas and Knight Lab.
The event will be hosted in the spacious Mid America Club in the Aon Center. Enter the Aon center on the ground floor and use your drivers license at the security desk to get an ID badge. Registrants are required to either have their real name in their ID or respond to the question upon registering.
