Data Stories 2020 Exhibition Opening
Data Stories is an exhibition of research results visualizations comprising diverse topics, ranging from social, historical and political, to environmental, artistic and scientific themes. Projects from the private, public and academic sectors are welcome. A picture is still worth a thousand words, and our aim is to bring together new insights and approaches on how to best communicate research output in a visual way. We hope to foster and encourage collaboration in the academic environment and communication between student talents and future employers. The exhibition generates an open dialogue on substantive scientific knowledge and technological interests and skills.
The Data Stories Exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for researchers to showcase their most important findings, reveal a novel perspective on an old problem, connect dots that haven't been connected before, or simply to learn something new about data visualization. The organizing team is well embedded in the wider community of academic and industry research and data visualization groups. Budapest Data Visualization Meetup, the local community started around the exhibition, gives us access to a wide variety of talks, workshops, and conferences with students and professionals who work on similar research interests.
We exhibit both single-authored contributions as well as interdisciplinary collaborations within and across academia and the private sector.
The exhibition will be opened by Tiago Peixoto, Associate Professor, Deaprtment of Network and Data Science, CEU.
