VK18 – Design. Reveal. Act.
Visualizing Knowledge brings together a diverse group of creators and decision-makers to discuss new approaches in data visualization and information design – designers, journalists, scientists, people from the public sector and enthusiasts. This year’s event is centered around design’s potential to reveal insight in data and relate stories that inspire action.
The one-day conference features researchers, educators and practitioners from a variety of disciplines related to Information Design while the showcase exhibits new talents from information design research and education. Workshops leading up to the conference invite speakers and audience alike to learn about state-of-the-art tools and methods in data visualization and exchange ideas and contacts.
