***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear all, We are excited to announce that the Information Visualization MOOC will be taught again in Spring semester 2015 (visit http://ivmooc.cns.iu.edu <http://t.co/DorsP7CA> to see the 2014 version of the course and a list of 2014 clients and projects <http://ivmooc.cns.iu.edu/clients.html>). Student’s learn the theoretical and technical skills to create information visualizations, and then given the opportunity to work with real-world clients and data as a team. You are invited to submit a client project that takes advantage of our students’ diverse skills in programming, design, data analysis and mining, and visualization. We are looking for well-defined projects that can be completed within seven weeks by teams of 4-5 students. Clients are responsible for three tasks: * Provide detailed description of your project and research goals, share data, and state the conditions under which students may publish results, and/or add project results on their resume. * At project launch, clients need to answer 5-10 questions that students might have about the project and data. * At the end of the project, clients are asked to rate—on a scale of 1 (low) to 5 (highest quality)—the resulting information visualizations of your data, and provide short feedback to students. As a client, you are welcome to interact in a more substantial ways with any of the student teams. If you are interested in exploring this unique opportunity, please complete the application form at *http://goo.gl/hqzlcS***by *November 21, 2014.* Let us know if you have questions but keep subject header. Thank you for considering and best regards, Michael Ginda and Katy Börner -- Katy Borner Victor H.
