Research Output & Impact Analyzed and Visualized: Concluding Conference

A DEFF-sponsored project which aims to educate libraries in data visualisation by cases in e.g. bibliometrics

Concluding conference: Visuals and Analytics that Matter

You are hereby encouraged to reserve the date of October 3rd 2018, on which the concluding conference of the DEFF sponsored project, ROI-AV, will take place.

The ROI-AV project develops skills and introduces modern tools and theories for analysis and visualization of data in the domain of research. While the project members are largely related to academic libraries and bibliometrics departments, the project scope is inspired by methods from other fields as well.

The conference will have the overarching theme of Visuals and Analytics that Matter. Accordingly, the event will be covering subjects that members of the project group have been working on during the last two years.

Themes that may be part of the event include:

  • Data visualization and analysis
  • Theory and best practices of information visualization
  • Mapping of knowledge and relations through the usage of linked data
  • Network Visualization
  • The above applied to the field of bibliometrics and scientometrics

Among the presenters will be practitioners and researchers, representing best practices and skills relating to these fields.

NB: The conference is free of charge and final programme will be available in August 2018.

See the program below.

Poster Session

In connection with the conference, ROI-AV is hosting a Poster Session This is the perfect opportunity for you to flash your work within the fields of visualization and data- & research analytics, including, but not limited to:

  • Network analysis
  • Great infographics
  • Text mining
  • Dashboard solutions
  • Simple - but effective visualizations
  • Complex visualizations
  • Research analytics - new ideas

The ROI-AV project group will also showcase some of the work developed within the project.
