The recent S-H-O-W conference organized by Graphic Hunters proved to be an enlightening and empowering experience for students from the Data Science and Society bachelor program. Held at the historic Anatomiegebouw in Utrecht, the conference brought together data visualization enthusiasts, fostering a supportive community for knowledge exchange, networking, and personal growth.
Curated talks and workshops by renowned speakers such as Michael Brenner, Beatrice Gobbo, and Manuel Lima offered diverse perspectives and insights into the world of data visualization. Students also engaged in open discussions, collaborated with peers, and gained practical skills through interactive workshops led by professionals like Mushon Zer-Aviv, Leticia Pozza, and Mark-Jan Bludau.
The S-H-O-W conference provided a unique opportunity for our students to connect with industry professionals, expand their horizons, and explore future career prospects. Attending this event enriched their educational journey, enhancing their technical skills and fostering a multidisciplinary approach.
