open competition aims to highlight the importance of quality plotting to
scientific progress and showcase the capabilities of the current generation
of plotting software. Participants are invited to submit scientific plots to
be judged by a panel. The winning entries will be announced and displayed at
the conference. John Hunter's family is graciously sponsoring cash prizes up
to $1,000 for the winners. We look forward to exciting submissions that push
the boundaries of plotting! See details here:
