VPG Contest Finalists Announcement 2013

IEEE Visualization Pioneers Group (VPG) received 11 best dissertation contest submissions from US, Canada, Europe, and Asia back in July 2013. Working together with IEEE VGTC, VPG invited panelists from US, Canada, and Europe to participate in the dissertation review process. As in most review processes, panel membership is anonymous. Panelists’ background interests and experience cover SciVis, InfoVis, and Visual Analytics, with three members from academia, one from industrial R&D, and one from industry. The panel adopted a conflict of interest policy similar to that of the US National Science Foundation. The panel chair presented the recommendations to the chair of IEEE VGTC on October 1, 2013. The panel identified four finalists and from these chose the best, and awarded an honorable mention as well. The four finalists of the 2013 contest are (in alphabetical order of the student last name):
1. Jaegul Choo, Georgia Institute of Technology, advisor: Hansun Park
2. Alexander Endert, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, advisor: Chris North
3. Tiago Etiene, University of Utah, advisor: Claudio Silva
4. Zhicheng Liu, Georgia Institute of Technology, advisor: John Stasko
The winner of the contest, and the honorable mention award will be announced at the VPG reception held on Monday, October 14 at IEEE VIS 2013.
