The IEEE VIS Conference is an annual conference held by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and is regarded as the foremost gathering of researchers focused on scientific visualization, information visualization, and visual analytics. This year, the conference’s Visualization Academy Selection Committee has announced that Professor David Laidlaw of Brown CS has been named to the IEEE Visualization Academy, a group of research leaders in the field of visualization that is credited with underscoring the accomplishments of the entire field. The academy was established in 2018 by the IEEE Executive Committee with an inaugural class of 32 individuals, and induction is considered to be one of the highest honors in the field of visualization.
“I’m flattered and honored to be inducted into the IEEE Visualization Academy,” David says, “and when I look at the group being inducted in this initial year, I feel very fortunate.” With this honor coming on the heels of the 2018 Best Poster Award at IEEE Vis, David continues to have an outsized impact on the exciting field of visualization.
