International Project Development Workshop and International Seminar

This new edition will focus on the implications of using data structure visualization to aid in public processes of decision-making.

Topics such as water wasting, patent registrations, Internet piracy, H1N1evolution or the use of social networks in politics will be addressed.

Collaborators can join any of the developing teams that will carry out the selected proposals, depending on their particular interests and skills, thus contributing with their knowledge and skills and at the same time learning from the other group members and from the leading tutors: Ben Cerveny (Stamen), Aaron Koblin, and Manuel Lima, with the support of Bestiario collective.

Collaborators' profile: The call is aimed at artists, engineers, programmers, software developers, designers, film & video makers, architects, hackers, psychologists, sociologists, journalists, ecologists, physicists, chemists, biologists or any other person interested in participating in the development of selected proposals.
