Seminar: Visualization and Graphic Design for Scientists

By Albert Cairo, Director of the Visualization Program at the Center for Computation Science, University of Miami

Date: Thursday, November 28th @ 11.00


When designing a data visualization, showing the data comes first. After all, the main goal of a visualization is letting the reader spot patterns and trends behind numbers. But what if the visualization we design is to be presented to a general audience? In that case we may want to think deeply about visual design elements such as typography, color, composition, and hierarchy. This talk teaches non-designers such as scientists and statisticians how to make our charts, graphs, publications, and conference posters look better.

Location: Room 2.1.12 at CSS, University of Copenhagen. Room is subject to change so be sure to check a few days before the seminar!
