Weaver is co-chair of this conference, and is also serving as a session chair and panel member.

The second event, the Visualization Summit, takes place on July 3rd at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. 100 invited participants will join in a series of ten workshops to define ten new research goals that can be achieved by 2010. The research goals need to be new, achievable, and must have highest relevance to science, business, or society. Weaver will be involved in two of the ten workshops: GeoVisualization, and Software infrastructures. The final ten research goals will be presented the following day at the International Conference for Information Visualization (IV07).

The 11th International Conference for Information Visualization (IV07) runs from July 4th through 6th in Zurich.
