      This is a smaller event than usual but it will be a good one.

      Information Visualisation (InfoVis) is a domain that has gained a lot
      of attention recently. The mass media seem to have fallen in love with
      information design too – feeding us with an infographic a day. But
      despite the great potential for representing data visually, a lot of
      the potential is currently being wasted. Just because something is
      graphically depicted does not mean it is useful and usable. The
      challenge is to design InfoVis tools and infographics that will allow
      its users to actually gain valuable insights from the data. The talk
      will present some of the advantages of visual communication, along
      with the challenges for design and evaluation of InfoVis tools.

      Jan works as User Experience Consultant at User-Centred Design agency
      Flow interactive in London. Before joining Flow Jan worked as an
      Information Architect designing Web2.0 online community services and
      corporate websites. He also has experience as a Business Analyst for
      Online Marketing at SITA, a global IT company operating in the air
      transport industry. Since at Flow, Jan has completed research and
      design projects for a number of clients including Transport for
      London, Tesco, HAYS, GAVI Alliance, and Standard Life. Apart from his
      capabilities in user-centred design methods, Jan is interested in
      Information Visualisation, Web Analytics, and Search Engine
      Optimisation. Jan has a BSc in Information and Communication
      Management and an MSc in Human-Computer Interaction from University
      College London.
