Tuesday, November 27, 2018, 9:50am to 11:00am


Phillips Auditorium, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

10QViz LogoThis talk is about 10 essential questions everyone —independent from their disciplinary backgrounds— would benefit asking themselves if they produce visual displays (plots, charts, maps, scientific visualizations). The project is the brainchild of Alyssa Goodman & Arzu Çöltekin, and the framework is published as a blog at In this talk, Arzu Çöltekin will explain each question and its importance with examples, and evidence from cognitive/perceptual experiments.  

Arzu Çöltekin is currently a group leader & senior lecturer at the University of Zurich and has years of work experience in which she bridges vision, visuospatial cognition, perception and attention with visualization research.
