Sci-Vi Conference: Visualisation and Animation in Science Dissemination

Sci-Vi Conference: Visualisation and Animation in Science Dissemination

Seminar on animation and visual research dissemination. Learning from state-of-the-art case-studies and ongoing research projects, we will discuss how 2D and 3D-visualisation and animation, narrative structures, and levels of temporal information can be combined in functional animation e.g. for educational or didactic purposes, or in the presentation or development of scientific material.


29.09.2017 kl. 09.00 - 17.00


During the program we will unfold the following questions:

  • Can cooperation between researchers and visual storytellers strengthen research dissemination and to what level?
  • How can we use narratives when we communicate research?
  • What is the relationship between the visual and cognition?
  • How do we strengthen the cooperation between scientists and visual storytellers?
