Directed by José Luis de Vicente. Teachers: Ben Cerveny (Stamen) and Aaron Koblin. With the support of Bestiario.
This new edition will focus on the implications of using data structure visualization to aid in public processes of decision-making. Selected projects and papers will tackle the topic of Open Data and Visualization for Government Transparency and Civic Engagement.
Visualizar'09 includes an international seminar and an advanced project development workshop. Both activities will tackle the topic of transparency of data to make public discussion and debate possible, regarding the political, social, and scientific processes. Consequently, one of the objectives of Visualizar'09 will be the development of new strategies for communicating these data and returning them to the public domain.
All those interested in collaborating in one of the selected projects can sign in from October 16 to November 11.

Public databases of institutions or research groups interested in sharing them and making them more available to citizens can be sent to visualizar[arroba]medialab-prado.es or through http://medialab-prado.es/visualizar
