Figures for Presentations and Publications


During this hands-on workshop students will create and/or improve figures to communicate their scientific research for different settings. Students will explore the art of conveying a message through the discussion of figure(s) from the literature and figures for a document they are currently working on, e.g. TAC report or journal paper, such that they have a tangible output from the workshop. Students are encouraged to bring their own figures and data to make modifications during the course. Note that this is not a technical course in software for creating figures.

Roughly, the course will be outlined as follows:

  • Introduction: Role of figures in presentations and publications
  • Optimizing different types of figures
  • Differences between figures for publications and presentations
  • Figure finishing
