Science is often invisible: It remains hidden between book covers, in complicated technical terms or cryptic tables. In our seminar we want to change that and teach you how to visualize and animate your research. The aim is to learn how to prepare scientific results and abstract research topics for a non-specialist audience.

The two-day seminar with practical exercises covers basic design principles and methods and focuses on applying them on the clear and engaging visualization of data and scientific information. Specific visualization techniques and tools are practiced to visualize the participants’ own research projects. In particular, the following topics are covered:


The seminar will be conducted online via Zoom as a two-day seminar on April 13-14, 2021.  On both seminar days the participants will have two 90-minute sessions with short breaks. The sessions are scheduled for 09:00 – 10:30 and 11:00 – 12:30.

At the end of the first seminar day all seminar participants will get exercises to be prepared for the second seminar day. Maximum number of participants is 12. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
