Graphical visualization is an efficient way to present specific information about a large amount of data. Sometimes the act of expanding the view of underlying or superordinate information creates images which can be strikingly beautiful. If you have produced such an image recently during your research you are welcome to participate at Insight 2016. The data will be presented in an exhibition hosted at Lakeside Science & Technology Park in Klagenfurt, Austria, shared with a broader public and judged based on both its aesthetic quality and ability to disclose information effectively.

What can be submitted?

Visualizations (no photographic images) that have been created by the researchers themselves and are linked to their (scientific) work. The data representations should be visually appealing and reveal information contained in the underlying data. The images may be submitted in any common electronic image format (min 750x750 pixels), common vector graphics are desirable.

Why should one participate?

Insight 2016 offers researchers the opportunity to present their work to a broader public and show how fascinating their work can be. The net income generated by the sale of the images on exhibition, are of benefit to a charitable purpose. In addition, the author of every accepted image has the chance to win one out of two awards. The images are judged based on both their aesthetic qualities and their ability to communicate information effectively.

How to submit?

Please send an e-mail to submission@insight2016.at no later than December 15, 2015. The following points must be included in the e-mail:

● Name and contact information of the creator
● Date of creation
