Our business as statisticians and data scientists is to find answers by investigating data with suitable methods. On the one hand, correct and reliable results have to be provided. On the other hand, these results need to be presented in order to meet the expectations of the customer. Most often, two different deliverables are desired by our customers: the answer to a special question by the investigation of a given data set, or a software routine the customer wants to apply to further data sets on its own. For the first deliverable, the preparation and the presentation of the outcomes are of utmost importance. Here, the discipline called “Information design” provides approaches on how to deal with the appropriate visualization of information. For the second deliverable, the software routine, an intuitive interface is needed. The discipline called “Usability” deals with questions of how such interfaces should look like.

This interactive session consists of two interconnected parts:

First, the concept of Information design, its do’s and don’ts, enriched with some tips and tricks are presented by Claudia Korizek. Further, the concept of Usability is presented by Wei-Ting Yang, who already has some experience in that field.

In the second part of this session, everyone is invited to share his/her experiences in Information design and Usability in small discussion groups. Also listeners are warmly welcome!

The second part of this session, guided by Stefanie Feiler, is on putting things into practice: in small groups you will tackle a project yourself. Onlookers are of course warmly welcome, too!

This special session, organized by young statisticians, addresses both young and experienced statisticians to share their experiences and to learn from each other. With your participation, we are looking forward to a lively and informative session.
