This workshop is intended to serve as an introduction for attendees to at least a few of the federal agencies that have visualization concerns. Lectures providing overviews of federal agencies will be followed by surveys of funding opportunities past and present as well as talks covering the peer- review process. Part of the available workshop time will be directed toward one-on-one conversations between agency representatives and participants. The intent is to provide young researchers an opportunity to learn about grantsmanship from representatives of federal funding agencies as well as provide those representatives with a forum to articulate their position on and announce opportunities for visualization research.
