Visualizing Europe: A One Day Conference On The Power & Potential Of Data Visualization

Visualizing.org is teaming up with Information Aesthetics and the Open Knowledge Foundation to hold an event focused on data visualization in Europe. The one-day event on June 14th explores the potential of data visualization in three panel discussions with experts from various fields. As the conference is invite-only, the audience will probably be rather narrow and focused, thus interesting discussions should be inevitable :)

We hope the organizers will make the content available to the public at some point, since we won't be able to attend this year. We'll try and blog the event anyway to keep you updated!
