This is a group for individuals interested in data visualisation, where members can skill-share, discuss data visualisation topics and highlight great examples. The current format is an (almost) monthly meeting, either a scheduled speaker or a more informal discussion session. “Data visualisation” in this group is focused on representing large scale data in interesting and innovative ways: i.e. more than just a graph!

Anyone can join the group. If you would be willing to speak at a session let us know (but that is not a requirement!).

If you are interested in joining, sign up to the mailing list at www.jiscmail.ac.uk/BRISTOL-DATAVIZINTERESTGROUP. The group is also on Yammer at the University of Bristol (DataViz Working Group).



Can found on our calendar here. For the time being, these are online seminars.


Current organisers

Harriet Mills, Oliver Davis, Natalie Thurlby and Polly Eccleston are always planning sessions, please get in touch if you have any ideas for speakers or topics you would like to see covered via grp-viz-org@groups.bristol.ac.uk.


Past organisers

Oli Chalkey (who founded this Data Visualisation working group with Harriet Mills and Bobby Stuijfzand) is taking a break from organising the group while he completes his Phd in ‘computational methods for the rational design of organisms through massive in-silico experiments.’ at the Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences, his GitHub is OliCUoB.

Bobby Stuijfzand now lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland but is still an honorary University of Bristol Data Scientist.
