The combination of perspectives from art and science are increasingly acknowledged as powerful approaches to both fields, and to education and public outreach. These interdisciplinary innovations reflect new understandings of the role of visualisation in science knowledge building and learning.
This symposium aims to bring together a heterogenous group of researchers, scientists, teachers, artists and educators from around the world to discuss ideas and practical applications of combining art and science through representation and modelling, visualisation, big data, and virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), both in traditional classrooms and informal learning settings such as planetariums.
