We have two papers, including a Best Paper Award for our Data Illustrator project (joint with Adobe), at the CHI Conference in Montreal.

We co-authored two chapters in the new book on Data-Driven Storytelling.

We're co-organizing a workshop on Multimodal Interaction for Data Visualization at the AVI 2018 Conference in Italy in May.

In Fall 2017 we were awarded a new NSF grant on Natural Visualization.

We won the VAST 2017 Test of Time Award for our 2007 paper introducing Jigsaw.

We had multiple papers and posters at the 2017 IEEE VIS Conference in Phoenix.
