What should I serve for the food?

The food can be anything that the host or coordinator wants to share, but try to have a vegetarian option and beware of possible food allergies.

Continuing Schedule:

What is the current SciVis speaker schedule?

What are the weekly duties?

Sunday: In the evening, remind the speaker for the week that they need to give you a title and abstract.

Monday: Send out the announcement email.

Wednesday before the meeting: Make sure that the speaker has gotten food or see if they need help with anything. Make sure the attendance/reimbursement form is ready.

Wednesday after the meeting: Send an email to the speaker for next week with instructions for hosting. Tell them about the food budget, offer to help with the food, send them a link to the reimbursement form.

Setting up google calendar events that send you (the coordinator) email reminders for each of the stages of the week is highly recommended.

What is a typical Wednesday reminder email?

Hi,

This is just your reminder that you are the host/presenter for the VisGroup meeting next Wednesday. I can help with food if you are rushed for time. If you get the food, then don't forget to save your receipts (around $15 budget) and print out a sign-in sheet (http://vis.cs.pitt.edu/resources/showFaq.php?id=11).

Please send me your title and abstract by Monday.

Thanks
