Visualizing Europe

Visualizing.org teams up with Information Aesthetics and the Open Knowledge Foundation to bring us an event focused on data visualization in Europe. The one-day event on June 14th explores the potential of data visualization in three panel discussions with experts from various fields. As the conference is invite-only, the audience will probably be rather narrow and focused, thus interesting discussions seem to be guaranteed. Hopefully, the organizers will make the content available to the public at some point.
