In recent years numerous visualisations involving scientific data and scientific themes have emerged from interdisciplinary collaborations between artists, scientists and designers. Works reach across diverse media, ranging from applied screen-based applications to experimental physical installations. While some are intended to inform by making the complex and abstract clear and visual, others focus on the aesthetic quality of the experience. What many of the works have in common is being the outcome of collaboration across disciplines.

This event seeks not only to contribute to the debate around data visualisation but also to a better understanding of what makes interdisciplinary collaborations successful. We wish to provide a platform for open dialogue and discussion across disciplinary cultures and seek a better understanding of the critical requirements for interdisciplinary collaboration. We ask what are the most fruitful conditions for interdisciplinary collaboration? How can trans-disciplinary understanding be best facilitated?
