Innovative visualisation technologies are enabling academics to communicate their research with new and larger audiences. Interactive visualisations of research data are increasingly available online and are encouraging publishers to reconsider past practices. This event will bring together publishers, academics, journalists and technologists around the topic of data visualisation. The aim is to foster discussion that will allow us to learn from one another and set new goals for collaboration and innovation.
