Where are you in the Vision Sciences Society network?

This year's program cover was designed by Emily Ward of Yale University and features all the co-author relationships for abstracts submitted over the last 14 years (2001-2014). Each node is a unique author and each edge that connects the nodes represents a co-authored abstract. The larger and darker the node, the more abstracts the individual has presented. The thicker the edge between two nodes, the more abstracts the two individuals have co-authored. The strength of these connections dictates the clusters in the network.

A fully interactive version of the network is available online at http://emilyward.org/vss/

There are nearly 14,000 authors and 42,000 co-author relationships, so the network is best explored (patiently) on a computer and not a mobile device.

See the full program cover at Previous Program Covers.
