​Wish to improve presentations? Join our webinar on visual storytelling! 

ICES Strategic Initiative on Integration of Early Career Scientists (SIIECS) seminar series continues featuring a guest speaker presentation by Tom Langbehn, University of Bergen, on visual storytelling. 

G​ood science is lost if not communicated efficiently. We understand visual information faster than reading text. Therefore, visualisation is an important element of science communication used everywhere from tweets, to slides and posters, to manuscripts. This makes data visualisation a generic skill in academia, the industry and public life. But how to we get from data to compelling figures and visualisations that tell a story? And how do we best arrange them for slides or posters to convey our findings more efficiently? In this webinar, we will start with the basics. We will discover some of the most common pitfalls in visualisation, discuss composition and design from figures to scientific posters and introduce some of the tools that will help you get there.
