Résumé :

In this digital age, communication has become increasingly visual. Like never before, visual information is increasing exposure and widening outreach to new audiences. With increasing demands from Journals (TOC arts, visual abstracts, scientific figures), conferences (posters, presentation) and competitive grants submissions, the science world is not spared. It is therefore important to get figures and images right for the intended audience, even more so when visualizing scientific data and conveying complex concepts. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published its Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C last October, in which it featured a new approach to figure design. Using key messages and visuals from this report as an example of integrating visual communication, this seminar aims to give scientists an overview of information design and cognitive concepts, as well as provide practical tips for creating their own engaging figures.
