Seeking Processing.js tutor for VIZBI 2012

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

We are seeking someone to give a hands-on, 1/2-day tutorial on Processing.js as part of the VIZBI 2012 tutorial day (Monday, 5 March 2012, in Heidelberg, Germany). At VIZBI 2011, we offered tutorials for the first time and they were quite popular, with the Processing tutorial attracting the most students. For VIZBI 2012 we would like to offer a Processing.js tutorial; the tutor will receive a share of the tutorial registration fee plus a complementary pass to the VIZBI conference, which takes place on the three days following the tutorial day. To get a flavor of the conference, check out the videos from previous VIZBI meetings. If you are interested in this opportunity, or if you can suggest someone ideal for spreading the word about Processing.js to computational biologists, please get in touch:
