Visual Reflections on Science

Visual Reflections on Science LogoISMB/ECCB 2009 will bring together scientists from a wide range of disciplines, including biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics. In these fields we are constantly dealing with information in visual form: from microscope images and photographs of gels to scatter plots, network graphs and phylogenetic trees, structural formulae and protein models to flow diagrams; visual aids for problem-solving are omnipresent.

Often these visual aids are mundane and nothing more than a small clue to the solution of the problem. But then there are special ones that make the whole more than the sum of its parts. Ones that combine outstanding beauty and aesthetics with deep insight that perfectly proves the validity of the scientific approach or goes beyond the problem's solution. Ones that surprise and inspire us through the transition from science to art, ones that open our eyes and minds to reflect on the work we are doing.

For the ISMB/ECCB 2008 Visual Reflections on Science Exhibition the organizers invite all interested conference attendees to submit images and videos that have been generated as part of a research project. They are also soliciting images and videos resulting from creative efforts that involve scientific concepts or employ scientific tools and methods.

Location: K Foyer (Stockholm International Fairs)
June 30th-July 1st, 8:45 AM to 5:45 PM
July 2nd, 8:45 AM to 12:40 PM
