February 23, 2016;
On Monday, 22
th of February, PhD Students and Principal Investigators of the SFB-TRR 161 and further
scientists of the
Visualization Research Center (VISUS) and
Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems
(VIS) came together at the University of Stuttgart. Reason for their meeting was a workshop
about press work for science topics with Eva Wolfangel – a journalist for science topics
with special interest in computer science, data and their relevance in our society or human
How does a journalist find his topics? Which topics are relevant for press work? And how can
they be prepared for non-experts? These were only some of the questions the participants discussed
during the seven hours’ course organized by subproject Ö. Besides they carved out
relevant activities for press work out of their research work and tried to find
significant headlines in practical exercises.
Due to the great demand in this workshop we organized a further course on 4
th of April at our Transregio Partner in Konstanz.
