For the next few days, I’m in Bremen, Germany for a conference on statistical graphics. The official name is Statistical Graphics: Data and Information Visualization in Today’s Multimedia Society.
While unsure about some conferences, I’m about 100% sure that I will enjoy this one. The schedule looks very promising with speakers whose papers I’ve read, but have never had the chance to meet. I’ll be speaking on data visualization for self-surveillance and personal discovery, but mostly I’m interested in what I’m going to learn the next few days.
EuroCup 2008 is also on the schedule. It’ll be my first European soccer viewing experience. Very exciting – especially since Germany is in the semi-finals.
Live Blogging the Conference
I’m going to try to live blog the event (the conference, not the soccer). There are 35 talks over the four days, so I imagine I’ll be note-taking like a fiend. However, a fare warning – there is a chance the jet lag will get the best of me. Just a slight chance.
