Images and Visualisation: Imaging Technology, Truth and Trust

17-21 September 2012

European Science Foundation Research Conferences, Scandic Linköping
Vast, Sweden, 17.-21. September 2012

Preliminary Programme

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. To
understand the social, ethical and aesthetic challenges posed by the
creation, use and appeal of such images, we need more than traditional
art history and more than insights from traditional aesthetics. We
need to understand these images in the context of modern science,
technology and society and we need ways of engaging those who produce
them (scientists, engineers, artists, photographers, journalists,
advertisers) with those who study them and those who use them. The aim
of this workshop is to bring together experts from across the
sciences, both natural and social, 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 and most importantly between these
sciences, in a context where both science and (visual) art and the
various sciences themselves are increasingly converging, but where, at
the same time, disciplinary boundaries still separate those working
across them.
