Effective Visual Communication of Science

How to visualize your scientific ideas and help your audience effortlessly grasp the essence of your research

In our 2-day workshop, you will learn how to visually communicate your complex research ideas and results so your messages are effortlessly understood by any specific audience. The workshop helps PhD students, postdocs, and also senior researchers grasp how our visual perception work and how to apply knowledge from various disciplines to communicate effectively.
We will also discuss data visualizations, colors, typography, image file formats, and apply the knowledge and skills to journal papers, project proposals, conference posters, and slide presentations. We will comprehensively address all aspects of visual communication that are necessary for scientists.

Methods and Learning Results
The workshop is very interactive and we discuss examples from slides, posters and papers that participants send in advance. We also apply the principles in an exercise where everybody draws a graphical abstract of their research and gets in-depth feedback from peer scientists in a group exercise.

Special Conditions
Before the workshop, you will send the lecturer your publications (posters, slides, papers, grant proposals, charts …) and we will discuss and comment on them during the workshop.
