We are delighted to invite you to the following 
Workshop on Visual Communication of Research and Data

Date: Friday 10 June 2016
Time: 10:00-14:30
VenueRoom 2.49 David Attenborough Building, New Museums Site

Please apply by filling the form in this link, by Tuesday 7 June 9pm.

The Data Visualization Series is supported by the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account, organised by the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute (UCCRI) and the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG).


Visual communication of research is becoming increasingly relevant. Summarising findings in a clear manner is crucial to pass the message to all relevant audiences, from other researchers to policymakers, hence to maximise impact.

This is a hands-on workshop with experts on visual communication of research and data from Vizzuality (the team that developed the interface for the Global Forest Watch, among others):

  • You can bring your research question, results or data, including spatial data. You will briefly present your visual design challenge and after, participants will be divided in teams to craft ideas for solutions, and to discuss the pathway for implementation. A visual design challenge can be any research related visualization that you would like to discuss, for example, how to display a large dataset over an interactive map, or how to synthesise complex data into a succinct and informative display.
  • You can also attend even if you don't bring your own research question or data, in which case you will participate in the discussion of solutions to the challenges brought by other researchers.

Places for the workshop are limited to 15 attendees. To apply for a place, please fill in this form by Tuesday 7 June 9pm. We will use this information to invite 15 of you to attend, and we will operate a waiting list system. The session is mainly addressed to early-career researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities. If you are not in this group but you would like to attend, please fill in the form and we will contact you if places become available. If you have trouble using the form, please email your details to
