Free visualization event at the University of Miami

The Digital Humanities + Data Journalism Symposium at the University of Miami was a big success, so we'll very likely do it again next year, in the Fall. Right now we're busy with another event that will take place in just one month, on November 10 between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m: Our annual visualization gathering, VizUM —register for free here, and read the official announcement.

This edition focuses on effective communication of scientific data. We have two great speakers. First, Martin Krzywinski, who works for Canada's Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre. Martin specializes in the visualization of genomics data. His graphics have appeared in the New York Times, Wired, Scientific American and covers of numerous books and scientific journals.

Second, Colin Ware, Director of the Data Visualization Research Lab which is part of the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping at the University of New Hampshire. If you work in visualization, you know who Colin is, and have probably read his books, which are classics already. If you haven't, well, you better do so right away!

I'm working on a poster and a flyer for the event right now. Here you have the drafts:
