VisCom 26 will be in near Salt Lake City, Utah. Craig Denton is leading the effort there and Sheree Josephson is heading up the Program. Lots of great ideas came up to help us manage having enough slots for all accepted speakers while at the same time reclaiming some of the social/down time we used to enjoy in past conferences. We’ll post descriptions of these ideas so you can comment. The final date is still up in the air but the two weeks that Craig is looking at are:
The Powerpoint is probably unnecessary. These are still in-progress, and they take forever to download right now. I will need to implement a preloader soon. Those interested can view the code on the website (see the CSS file as well as the HTML file).
Posting your presentation or paper on the VisCom site is really easy…

The location for the 2011 VisCom Conference will be Taos, New Mexico. The tentative dates are June 15-19 — although that is subject to change pending location availability.
Richard Schaefer of UMN has volunteered to manage the site logistics plus AV – and Hans Rosenwinkel of UC Denver is interested in compiling the program. Thanks to both for volunteering for Camp VisCom in 2011. Let them know if you’d like to assist in either area.
Dick Schaefer has found a great (and extremely affordable) location in Taos, N Mex.
Karla Berry… who had volunteered (in abstentia) to find a location thinks Taos would be great.
In order to streamline the email/listserve situation for VisCom-ers, we have created a Google Group, “Camp VisCom” (plain VisCom having already been taken.) All the folks who were on the Constant Contact list have been sent invitations to join the Google Group. If you received an invitation to join the Google Group, simply reply to the invitation by clicking on the link in the email. If you wish to invite someone to join the group, I have enabled the Members Invite function so you should be able to do that from the website… or send me that person’s email address and I will send an invitation. This is IMPORTANT because I will be deleting the Constant Contact group (and thereby saving myself $15.95 a month.)
