SPIE Invited Speaker for 2017
Jean-luc Doumont: conveying messages with graphs
When: Friday, 24 March 2017 3-5 pm
Where: Roberts 101
About the event:
Widely used in research to analyze and communicate data, graphical displays are still poorly mastered by researchers, who frequently display their data sets in a suboptimal way (and popular software does not exactly help). This lecture discusses how to select the right graph for a given data set and a given research question, how to optimize this graph to reveal the data, and finally how to phrase a useful caption.
An engineer (Louvain) and PhD in applied physics (Stanford), Jean-luc Doumont is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, maps, and theorems, his book about “effective communication for rational minds.” For additional information, visit www.principiae.be.
