Viz @ UBC is an initiative to bring together and promote the community at UBC of people interested in visualization. We're targeting a very broad set of activities, including both research and teaching across all disciplines, as well as visual data analysis and presentation for administrative contexts within the university. Our overall theme is helping people "take it to the next level" in terms of engagement with visualization. This theme might mean different things to different people - for instance, going from aspirations to something concrete, or from small efforts to a more in-depth project, or for escalating already-substantial efforts.
