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
