ScienceOnline Bay Area (SOBA) is a monthly discussion series on how science is carried out and communicated online. The first event in the series focuses on the topic of data visualization and data journalism in science.
Join us to officially kick off the SOBA series with short speaker presentations, a panel discussion, and audience Q&A. For those who’d like to continue the conversation, the gathering convenes at a nearby bar (to be announced at the event).
Although not yet exactly common in science reporting, data journalism and data visualization are a natural fit to the material. But how does one go beyond the use of tabular data and basic analysis to data scraping and sophisticated statistical techniques? We’ll discuss the issues, methods, and tools of data visualization and data journalism and explore the cutting edge of these fields with some of the leading practitioners in the Bay Area.
