Dr. Chamont Wang invited to give workshop and presentation

Dr. Chamont Wang invited to give workshop and presentation

Dr. Chamont Wang has been invited by Tableau Software to give both a workshop and a presentation, “Stop Wrestling with Your Data-Start Exploring it with Tableau,” at the 2011 Annual Meeting of INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences) in Charlotte, NC, 11/12-11/16.  His student Chris Lombardi is attending and helping with the workshop.

In mid-November 2011, Professor Chamont Wang gave an invited
presentation on dynamic data visualization and conducted a workshop on
the Tableau software package at the INFORMS conference in Charlotte,
North Carolina. Christopher Lombardi (shown above), a TCNJ senior statistics major
working with Dr. Wang, participated in the presentation.

Tableau was created by Professor Pat Hanrahan of Stanford University to
help people on the visualization of complicated data sets. Tableau was
the result of work on a Defense Department project. Dr. Hanrahan is also
a founding member of Pixar, the studio that produced blockbuster films
such as Toy Story and WALL-E. Dr. Wang and Chris look forward to future
collaboration working with the Tableau software package.
