In addition to [VISualize][visualize-2012] coming up soon in June, Exelis VIS is holding a [fall User Group meeting][fall-meeting] as well:

> The IDL User Group Meeting 2012 will be held September 19-20 at the beautiful LASP facility on CU-Boulder’s East Campus. Please join us for presentations by members of the IDL community and by the IDL development team at Exelis VIS. We’ll also have a competition for the best IDL visualization. Pre-registration will be required since seating is limited.

The preliminary schedule is:

> Day 1 (Wed Sep 19):
> * Short workshops on selected topics in IDL (bring a laptop, if you wish)
> * Presentations by the IDL development team
> * User discussion groups
> Day 2 (Thu Sep 20):
> * User presentations
> * Visualization contest

I will definitely be there (especially since it's less than two miles from here)!
