Vis Lies 2016!

VisLies 2016

Tuesday October 25 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Held in conjunction with IEEE VIS 2016
Hilton Baltimore Hotel, Ruth room

This fun and engaging evening session showcases examples of egregious perceptual, cognitive, and conceptual errors in visualization, presented by members of the Vis community. Examples from our own work, from published papers, and from the internet highlight the many ways the visual representation can misrepresent the underlying phenomena in the data. This is a great opportunity for amusement and for learning, and every year we walk away with a smile on our faces and a deeper sense of responsibility that may one-day impact the world.
