Workshop information (12th April)

An optional workshop will be held on April 12, topic: “Graphical abstracts“.  Did you ever have the wish to promote your research in another way than just presenting at conferences? Posting your research on social media like Twitter or Linkedin can be quite complex and you want to reach a big audience. “Graphical Abstracts” can help with creatively presenting your research. 

This workshop includes the principles of good design, an intro to visual abstracts and a lot of time to get started with your first ideas.

Participants are encouraged to bring a paper of their choice to build a graphical abstract for it. The workshop does not include graphics software nor software training, participants should bring their own software which they are already familiar with (e.g., PowerPoint, Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Designer). 
Optionally, participants can purchase Affinity Designer licenses (£40 each) through the workshop instructors and attend a free 3hr Affinity Designer 2 training session before the workshop (subject to availability). We cannot offer financial help for purchasing licenses, it is up to the interested participants to find the funds on their own. If you plan on purchasing the software please let us know by email.
