Helena Jambor: Take a sad plot and make it better - Better figures in the biological sciences 

Visualizations are widely used, in figures, slides, or posters, to communicate about scientific data. Visual communication strategies are however not regularly part of the scientific curriculum. In the workshop participants learn how to recognise common fallacies of scientific plots and how to avoid these. We will discuss different chart types and their use and misuse, ethical data display, and design principles to make visualizations clear to wide audiences. Using exercises we will turn a few sad plot examples into better versions of themselves.
