The Canadian Visual Analytics School (CANVAS) is an annual visual analytics summer school / conference held by members and partners of the Canadian Network for Visual Analytics (CANVAC).

The two-day summer school includes lectures, keynotes and panels with industry, non-profit, and academic experts in the field, as well as hands-on workshops for a focused VA learning experience for participating students. 

The 6th CANVAS is returning to Simon Fraser University, where it will take place July 19-20, 2017 at SFU’s Big Data Hub at the Burnaby campus. The registration fee is $100.
