This workshop is suitable for students and early career researchers.

Displaying information in a visual format is an excellent way for researchers to communicate their work. You can enhance your research papers, thesis, conference posters, presentations and public engagement activities with accurate and clear visual representations. This workshop is designed to introduce participants to various types of visual formats including standard graphs, information visualisations and infographics.

There are a number of different ways to display your data or ideas visually and it depends on who you are aiming to engage and what you want to tell them. How do you decide which format is best and how much time does it take? What story can your data tell? How do you match certain types of image to particular publications? There are a number of digital tools available, many of which are free, that allow you to build engaging graphics in a relatively short space of time. This workshop will introduce participants to some of these tools and provide further resources for them to explore in their own time.

Data and information visualisation is a vast and rapidly growing field. The half day version of this workshop covers the principles of visualising data and information including examples from the instructor’s own publications and experience. The full day includes an additional session which introduces participants to various free tools. This workshop is suitable for students and early career researchers.
