A figure is worth a thousand words. Based on this premise, the goal is to sensitize academics to the importance of effective visual communication of scientific results. The workshop provides guidelines for data visualization based on theoretical advances on data visualization and good practices, and introduces a number of traditional and recent visualization techniques which can be applied to various scientific domains. The practical section also provides an overview of some tools for data visualization with various levels of complexity and learning curve. Examples from various scientific fields will be presented and discussed in terms of visual construction and possibilities of improvement.
