Data Stories is an exhibition of research visualizations on social and behavioral scientific topics, done in academia and the private sector. The fifth edition brings together students, faculty, as well as business representatives to share their work and tools for data analysis & visualization. The project aims to improve collaboration in the academic environment and communication between student talents and future employers. The exhibition generates an open dialogue on substantive social scientific knowledge and technological interests and skills.
Welcoming both print and interactive visualizations, the fifth edition hopes to achieve:
Participating in Data Stories is a fantastic oportunity to showcase your most important findings, reveal a novel perspective on an old problem, connect dots that haven't been connected before (or have been, but were missing better data), or simply to learn something new about the world, or about data visualization. The organizing team is well embedded into the wider community of academic and industry research and data visualization groups. Budapest Data Visualization Meetup, the local community started around the exhibition, gives us access to a wide variety of talks, workshops and conferences with students and professionals who work on similar research interests.
We encourage both single authored contributions, as well as inter-disciplinary collaborations within and across academia and the private sector.
