The IEEE VGTC Visualization Academy

The Visualization Academy is a prestigious academy that highlights the accomplishments of the leaders in the field. Since awards are limited in number, the field should recognize significant contributions and the academy is a mechanism for recognizing such contributions. The goal is to recognize those in the field who exceed or augment the criteria of existing VGTC awards.

The VGTC Visualization Awards Program Chair is Chuck Hansen. VGTC members may nominate individuals by completing the appropriate nomination form.
