Competition Details

The “Visualizing Network Dynamics” competition will be held as an integral part of NetSci07. The competition will invite researchers, practitioners, and educators from such diverse disciplines as anthropology, sociology, history, social psychology, political science, human geography, biology, economics, communications science but also art and design to submit the best-of visualizations of evolving networks, activity patterns over networks or combinations of the two.

Competition applications will comprise large resolution static images or video footage together with a detailed explanation of datasets used, analysis or modeling techniques applied, and visualization design. Applicants will also be asked to list and explain major insights gained and to discuss the value the visualization might have for educational purposes.

The competition aims to harvest the best examples of meaningful (as opposed to purely artistic) network dynamics visualizations, to raise the bar for the documentation and communication of the process applied to generate those visualizations, and to sensitize people to the importance of visualization for formal and informal education and the communication of science in general.

Correspondingly, visualizations will be judged based on:

Truthfulness of the data representation
How well the visualization serves the needs of its ‘clients’
Quality of data preparation and analysis
Layout and design of the visualization
The significance of insights gained
Educational value
Visual appeal
Description of work
