DayVis - Days in Visualization 2007
Visualization in the Natural Sciences and the Humanities
Graduate Workshop, Heidelberg, June, 26th-27th
Organizers: Dr. Michael Winckler, Dr. Johannes Schlöder
Visualization of data is a key aspect in modern scientific
research. The reasons for the use of visualization are
numerous: computer generated datasets are too large and
complex to derive results by just looking at columns of
numbers. Structure and coherence of data components are
easier to identify when presented in an illustrated
context. And finally the ability of the human brain to
abstract and simplify is directly bound to the
Our workshop brings together researchers in the vast
field of computer graphics and graduate students persuing
projects in either the natural sciences or the humanities
to incite the imaginative use of images in scientific
publications. Doctoral students are encouraged to use
visualization as a modern means to present science
in a intuitive and productive way. We also hope to spawn
a fruitful dialog between the specialists in this field
to search for new projects especially with a broader reach
into the humanities.
