Data Visualization is a transversal discipline which harnesses the immense power of visual communication in order to explain, in an understandable manner, the relationships of meaning, cause and dependency which can be found among the great abstract masses of information generated by scientific and social processes.
The Visualizar project, directed by José Luis de Vicente, is conceived as an open and participatory research project around theory, tools and strategies of information visualization.
Visualizar has the support of Bestiario, whose members have collaborated actively in every edition up to date.
Visualizar'16 International Workshop, titled Ciudades abiertas, Open Cities, will take place from September 26th to October 5th. During ten days, eight multidisciplinary teams will develop eight projects dealing with city data.
On October 5th 2016, one day before the International Open Data Conference in Madrid (Spain), the city council of Madrid in alliance with other international institutions will be hosting the Open Cities Summit at Medialab Prado.
The summit aims at bringing together Open Data practitioners from all over the world and showcasing ambitious actions on how cities and citizens are using data to improve lives, particularly by solving environmental, cultural and organizational challenges in cities. Send your proposal and/or register for the event before 15 August!
