Dimitra Spathara, PhD student in Met & Mat, EPS is helping organize the summer school HERMES 2016: An entirely student-led project that brings together materials modelling and science communication. If you are interested contact Dimitra directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
World-class academics, such as Prof. Kurt Kremer and Prof. Nicola Spaldin will be given masterclasses at Materials Modelling. More details here
Science Communication Theme (2016) : Data Visualisation
Young researchers will receive training in Data Visualisation through a blend of talks/ workshops and tasks. On previous events the theme was short presentations (2014) and video making (2012).
Prof. Craig Carter is a world-class materials modeller, and for the previous two times HERMES was held, he was one of the academics to give a masterclass. At the following event (2016), he will give training on data visualisation connected to materials modelling by using specific software. Piero Vitelli is coming for the second time to give a talk on delivering presentations and public engagement. Lulu Pinney is invited to train participants on how their data visuals can work in their research storytelling.
