Show me the Data 2013 – March 28, 16:30-19:00 >>> more information
“Show Me the Data” is an annual multidisciplinary course and public event. The course brings together the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Utrecht Graduate School of Visual Art and Design (maHKU) students to get familiar with the world of data visualization. “Show Me the Data” was co-founded by Yuri Engelhardt and Marcel Worring in 2007/2008. Over the years, the core academic teaching staff has included Yuri Engelhardt, Marcel Worring, Esther Weltevrede, Raul Niño Zambrano, Bernhard Rieder, Hein Eberson and Almila Akdag.
UvA and maHKU is proud to announce the sixth edition of Show Me The Data, which will take place on March 28th, 2013. Students from the Masters in New Media, Editorial Design and Artificial Intelligence will introduce in this international event their new data visualization projects, developed in multidisciplinary teams. The schedule of the event also includes keynotes, panels and discussion boards on information visualization with professionals and scholars.
Previous editions of Show Me The Data have been a hotspot for creative and interactive visualization projects, an event in which innovation and knowledge get together for introducing new generations of visualization specialists. In previous years we have been pleased with the presence of Alberto Cairo (http://www.thefunctionalart.com), Jan Willem Tulp (http://tulpinteractive.com), Manuel Lima (visualComplexity.com), Daniel Aguilar (bestiario.org) and Erik-Jan van der Linden (magnaview.nl) among others. New ways to arrange photos on which you are together with your friends, applications that track the evolution of tags through space and time, visual displays of the commercial relations between countries… these are just a few examples of the diversity and creativity of the projects presented in past editions.
