Brown Bag Lunch Schedule
The HCIL has an open semi-organized weekly "brown bag lunch (BBL)" on every Thursdays from 12:30-1:30pm in HCIL (2105 Hornbake, South Wing). The topics range from someone's work, current interest to the HCIL, a software demo/review, a study design, a proposed research topic, an introduction to a new person, etc. The BBL is the one hour a week where we all come together--thus, it’s a unique time for HCIL members with unique opportunities to help build collaborations, increase awareness of each other’s activities, and generally just have a bit of fun together with free food every week.
To sign up for a session, send an email to BBL student co-coordinator Austin Beck (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lelya Norooz (email@example.com). In the email, briefly describe the topic and preferred dates.

ProgressiVis: a New Workflow Model for Scalability in Information Visualization
There are legitimate reasons why it takes time for infovis to start catching-up with these large numbers, and some work such as Lins et al. Nanocubes (http://www.nanocubes.net/) and Liu et al. imMens (http://idl.cs.washington.edu/papers/immens), have started to show possible routes to scalability. However, they both rely on either pre-computed aggregations that need hours to compute for large datasets, or on a highly parallel infrastructure performing aggregations on the fly. In my talk, I will explain why we need more flexible solutions and present a new workflow architecture called ProgressiVis, to achieve progressive computations and visualization over massive datasets.
