CANVAS 2015 Visual Analytics Summer School
Posted on August 25th, 2015 by CIVDDD | Events
Thank you for participating in CANVAS 2015!

We had a record turnout of 93 registrants and 39 speakers at this year's summer school hosted at York University, to address a variety of topics in data and visual analytics. Our attendees came from over 12 universities and colleges, and 12 companies, and our Career Coaching was fully booked.

Highlights included an animated history of computing technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship by Dr. Alvy Ray Smith, co-founder of Pixar Animation and Altamira Software. Tableau Software provided a deep dive into current data analytics and visualization concepts and tools. Expert panels, lectures, and hands-on workshops were well received and enjoyed by all.

The diversity of delegates provided excellent knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. Thank you to our Sponsors, including the Lassonde School of Engineering, York University, OCAD University, and CANVAC for their support. Also, thank you to our community of colleagues for spreading the word and encouraging attendance at CANVAS 2015. Most of all, thank you to our attentive attendees for their positive reviews and contributing to our success!
