The European Science Foundation Conference on Images and Visualisation in Science is now 17th June.
We invite people to attend or to apply to give a short talk (10-15 minutes) or poster at our European Science Foundation conference, ?Images and Visualisation: Imaging Technology, Truth and Trust? on the 17th to 21st September, 2012. The aim of this conference is to bring together experts from across the natural and social sciences, with curators, artists, producers and users of images based on advanced visual engineering. The conference will be interested in the construction, circulation and interpretation of images from across the sciences with a specific interest in articulating common issues and differences across the scales of representation. For more information please see the conference website or contact the organisers. If you?d like to discuss a potential presentation then do please get in touch with Andrew.balmer at manchester.ac.uk<mailto:Andrew.balmer at manchester.ac.uk>
Some funding is available and this may cover costs of the conference and/or travel fees for accepted proposals. Submissions are particularly welcome from PhD students and early career scholars. Decisions on presentations and funding will be made on the basis of merit and relevance.
The conference already has a stellar list of speakers, please see the programme here: http://www.esf.org/activities/esf-conferences/details/2012/confdetail385/385-preliminary-programme.html
To apply to present at what we hope will be an exciting and productive event please complete the registration form here: http://www2.esf.org/asp/esfrcaf.asp?confcode=385&meetno=1
If you would like to attend the conference but not to speak or present a poster then of course you are welcome and we encourage you to register using the link above.

Subject: ESF Conference on Images and Visualisation in Science
Images and Visualisation: Imaging Technology, Truth and Trust
17-21 September 2012
Deadline 6th June
Both Leonardo da Vinci and John Constable claimed that painting is a
science. This science has been explored extensively in traditional
aesthetics and art
history. Given recent advances in science and visual engineering,
creating images for science, of science and for the translation
(interpretation) of science has become at one and the same time
commonplace, even easy, and even more scientific.
The aim of this conference is to bring together experts from across
the natural and social sciences, with curators, artists, producers and
users of images based on advanced visual engineering. By exploring
emerging challenges at the interface between advanced visualisation
technologies, truth and trust we want to stimulate talk, interaction
and collaboration between the arts, humanities and (natural, medical,
engineering, computer) sciences, in a context where both science and
(visual) art are increasingly converging and, at the same time,
disciplinary boundaries still separate those working across them.
