Hosted by the Data Visualization Society, Outlier is an online conference that reflects and celebrates the global visualization community.
Outlier aims to put forward a diversity of perspectives and ideas. Our team works really hard to recruit speakers across backgrounds of race, gender, geographic location, tooling, background, focus, visibility, and seniority, to name a few. We also strive to be as inclusive as possible by providing, for example, income-conscious ticketing options and live captioning during the event.
The next Outlier event will take place on February 4-5, 2022.
There are two types of sections within this conference: curated and open, with the schedule alternating between the two. Curated sections look similar to the standard “conference structure”, with a higher focus on talks, and only one talk running at once. The open sections consist of unconference sessions, have several tracks running concurrently, and are fleshed out based on attendee interests and preferences.
The ticket sales will open by the end of 2021. Stay tuned!
