01 Sep Sci-Vi Conference 2020
November 27, 2020 – Visualisation and animation in science dissemination
2020 Theme: ‘Science for Society – Visual storytelling in science dissemination’.
Free online Sci-Vi Conference
The Sci-Vi Conference facilitates knowledge exchange and networking between researchers and visual storytellers.
Sci-Vi is a new initiative seeking to explore and unfold science dissemination as a field, to improve science communication and focus on science productions through visualization and animation. The initiative will strengthen the cooperation between scientists and visual storytellers, and investigates potentials and possibilities in a broad community. Sci-Vi cultivates community, knowledge exchange, professional and academic matchmaking, initiates research and development within the field. The conference brings together researchers, animators and visual storytellers to discuss, exchange knowledge and learn from state-of-the-art case studies and ongoing research projects.
The conference is focusing on these issues:
• Can cooperation between researchers and visual storytellers strengthen research dissemination and to what level?
• How can we use narratives when we communicate research?
• What is the relationship between visual and cognition?
• How do we strengthen the cooperation between scientists and visual storytellers? -incl. examples of partnerships.
