This program is designed to target scientists who are increasingly reliant on images to communicate their work - in publications, presentations or proposals. Current possibilities to visualize data and scientific results are demonstrated based on historically established image competence. This includes areas of information transfer - reaching from statistical analyses and diagrams, plans and technical drawings to scientific visualizations from medicine or nanotechnology. Theoretical knowledge derived from the history of motifs, color theory etc. is imparted, in order to assess, analyze and communicate scientific diagrams and charts in an adequate form. On the other hand, practical skills are trained with the help of case studies aiming to retain the knowledge to adequately prepare and design data and information. The objective strategy is to use new tools and techniques of information visualization (software etc.) as part of the training in order to present results and facts in a clear and optimal manner and to make them intuitively perceivable.

Target Group

Natural scientists - from biologists to mathematicians - and scientists from other disciplines as well as people who are interested in specializing in the visualization of scientific results.
