AVETH is inviting you to see one of the world’s leading private collections of clocks that can be found at the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum. Over 300 very valuable exhibits present the history of timekeeping from 1400 BC to the present day: from sundials to water and tower clocks, Renaissance automata, magnificent pendulum clocks, elaborately decorated pocket watches and the prototype of the first quartz wristwatch. Scientific navigation devices and some very fragile automatic watches are also featured. Due to the size of the museum number of participants is limited to 15.
Month: June 2017
Join the monthly meeting of the AVETH Politics Team. Everybody is welcome to join the discussion. For input or questions, please contact Romain or Martin directly. This month the following topics are on the agenda:
Let’s face it: your time as a PhD student is all about how to do correct science and to sum it up into a paper. However, questions like how a good overview graphic is put together, which colors should one use in which context, or how data is clearly arranged, seem to be of less importance. Science matters and not nice pictures, right? Wrong, and you know it. With the Scientific Data Visualization Workshop we put together an afternoon of talks from experts in the field of data visualization. The talks range from a scientific- to a graphical background. During 45 min lectures you will learn, for example on the basis of negative examples, how to best visualize the important points of your work! Each talk is followed by a Q&A session. During an Apéro there will be time to network and further discuss visualization ideas.
