Four things about this year's Graphical Web Conference (Pittsburgh, PA. September 23-26):
0. Always start counting with zero. It drives mathematicians nuts.
1. The Call for Web Art. Deadline is July 18th. Please submit your art to this juried event! http://cs.sru.edu/~svg/CallforWebArt.html
2. A tentative schedule has been published. http://graphicalweb.org/2015/
3. Among the confirmed speakers (we still have some hopeful surprises in the wings) are some familiar names in the Graphical Web standards world including Vincent Hardy - Adobe, Erik Dahlstrom - SVG Working Group, Alex Danilo - Google, Doug Schepers - W3C, Nikos Andronikos - Canon; and some names new to us: Tom Patterson US National Park Service, two folks from Ravel Law (they do visualization of law, and seem to be taking aim at Mead and WestLaw, but with more modern approaches), Rahul Ravikumar (Apple) and John Hellier (Sandia National Labs).
