Résumé

The previous edition of the visualization of information took place in 2015 and was related to computer science. In 2017 we focus on the use of visualization in the humanities, and in particular book- and information sciences, history, cultural studies and the arts. The purpose of this event is to increase awareness about the importance of scientific communication in graphical form among Polish humanists, and integration of academic community for experience exchange in the field of the art of visualization.

Argument

Information Visualisation - a modern technology and methodology proves its usability in nearly every aspect of human activity: from R & D to business, social sciences and art. InfoVis is a practical knowledge of graphical handling of the big data sets, representing particular aspect of the reality.

The previous edition of the visualization of information took place in 2015 and was related to computer science. In 2017 we focus on the use of visualization in the humanities, and in particular book- and information sciences, history, cultural studies and the arts. The purpose of this event is to increase awareness about the importance of scientific communication in graphical form among Polish humanists, and integration of academic community for experience exchange in the field of the art of visualization.

Big data sets cause the need for their presentation in condensed and understandable form. Current mass-data becomes a reality not only in the natural sciences but also in humanities, especially in the social sciences. To explore and analyse these resources, researchers are successfully using advanced visualization methods. Our conference focuses on the areas of knowledge and the intensity of information visualisation use.

The range of topics includes (not exclusively):

  • visual scientometrics (visualisations in scientometrics),
  • mapping the knowledge,
  • visual history and historiography,
  • sociometry,
  • visual design,
  • vision (cognitive aspects),
  • digital images in the humanities,
  • the art of visualization.
