ESF-LiU Conference
Images and Visualisation: Imaging Technology, Truth and Trust

17-21 September 2012

Norrköping, Sweden

Chaired by:
Brigitte Nerlich, University of Nottingham, UK, Director, Leverhulme
Programme: Making Science Public
Andrew Balmer, University of Manchester, UK
Annamaria Carusi, University of Copenhagen, DK

Both Leonardo da Vinci and John Constable claimed that painting is a
science. This science has been explored extensively in traditional
aesthetics and art history. Given recent advances in science and
visual engineering, creating images for science, of science and for
the translation (interpretation) of science has become at one and
the same time commonplace, even easy, and even more scientific.
The aim of this conference is to bring together experts from across
the natural and social sciences, with curators, artists, producers
and users of images based on advanced visual engineering. By
exploring emerging challenges at the interface between advanced
visualisation technologies, truth and trust we want to stimulate
talk, interaction and collaboration between the arts, humanities and
(natural, medical, engineering, computer) sciences, in a context
where both science and (visual) art are increasingly converging and,
at the same time, disciplinary boundaries still separate those
working across them.
