Connect, Learn,

The Outlier Vision

Hosted by the Data Visualization Society, Outlier will provide inspirational talks, the ability to meet and connect with others, and the opportunity for all attendees to have a voice.

The conference will also reflect and celebrate the global visualization community. We see this event as an opportunity to think outside of the box and make something unique and different. 

Make Connections

You’ll many opportunities for networking and connecting with others in a variety of ways. Because this takes more work and thought to do well in an online setting, we see enabling these kinds of connections and conversations as one of the biggest measures of success for an online conference.

Learn from Our Speakers

The field of data visualization includes people of many backgrounds, toolings, geographies, languages, and experience levels. We aim to secure a diverse lineup of speakers covering a wide range of topics to leave you feeling excited and inspired.

Inspire Others

Want to host a Q&A, throw together a panel, run a discussion on a topic, or even host a game session? No Problem! In addition to the curated talks, everyone will have an opportunity to plan unconference sessions, creating experiences by and for those in attendance.
