The goal of DATAVIZ-SIG is to bring together users and lovers of data visualization across the University s schools, centers, and hospitals. This is a group for everyone from those actively using data visualization in their day-to-day tasks, to people who are just interested in making more effective presentations.

Light refreshments will be provided!

Subject to your input, DATAVIZ-SIG hopes to focus on:

  • collaboration around how data visualization is/can be utilized across Penn
