Visual Studies Rendezvous

The goal is to create a community through:

  • Meeting face-to-face with other people who are interested in Media Arts + Sciences
  • Sharing ideas / methods / resources
  • Learning about the projects we’re all working on
  • Socializing and getting to know each other better

Our featured speaker will give a short review of their project(s) to give us a taste of what they’re thinking about and engage everyone in a discussion on the topic. Talks are very informal, often consisting of work in progress, and we encourage both “of the theory” and “of the practice” topics. The rest of the time will be open for general discussion. All those interested in Media Arts + Sciences at Duke are welcome!


Visualization Friday Forum

The Visualization Friday Forum seminar series is a forum for faculty, staff and students from across the university to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. Our goal is to build an interdisciplinary community of visualization experts whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation.
