making science communication a conversation

Dr. Jean-Luc Doumont on Conveying Messages with Graphs (Waitlist)

There is a workshop by Dr. Jean-luc Doumont coming up on September 28th that we wanted to make you aware of (see below). Note that the event is already full; however, this has happened before with Dr. Doumont's presentations, and if demand is high they will sometimes change location to allow people from the waitlist to attend. We encourage you to register for the waitlist if you're interested.

Dr. Doumont is a highly recommended speaker, we have thoroughly enjoyed his presentations in the past. He is opinionated about the ways in which scientific communication should occur, and his presentations are usually engaging and informative. We hope that you'll attend one of his presentations if given the opportunity.

FULL (Join the Waitlist): Conveying Messages with Graphs: A Presentation by Jean-luc Doumont

Lurie Engineering Center, Johnson Rooms

Graphical displays are poorly mastered by researchers, who often use the wrong graphs or use them in the wrong way. During Dr. Jean-luc Doumont’s talk, he will discuss how to select the right graph for a given data set and research question, how to optimize the graph's construction to reveal the data, and how to phrase a useful caption. Dr. Doumont is an international speaker on this topic and is the author of "Trees, maps, and theorems: Effective communication for rational minds.”
