Thurs. 29.06.2017: Scientific Data Visualization Workshop

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.
