Are you a researcher looking for illustrators and designers to illustrate your paper, and get your article published on a scientific journal cover? Or maybe you are an illustrator or designer, passionate about science, who would like to collaborate with researchers?
Either way, you should not miss the FIRST MEETING OF SCIENTIFIC ILLUSTRATORS AND RESEARCHERS. For the first time the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) will host this event, to bring researchers closer to scientific illustrators.
The meeting is one of the activities of the program "JO IL·LUSTRO LA CIÈNCIA" within the ILLUSTRACIeNCIA project, organized by the Catalan Association of Scientific Communication (ACCC) and within the activities of the SCIENCE WEEK of the ICMAB; Both initiatives funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) through its call for grants for the promotion of scientific culture and innovation.
In addition, ICMAB will host the exhibition of the Scientific Illustrator Roc Olivé during the days before and after the meeting, who will also participate in the conference with an inaugural lecture. Before the seminar, we will have Miquel Baidal, illustrator, presenting the cycle of activities of "JO IL·LUSTRO LA CIÈNCIA", and then the illustrators/designers who wish to present their work to the audience will have the opportunity to do so. Finally, we will have a session of vermouth + networking between the attendees.
This FIRST MEETING will take place on Wednesday, November 29, from 11 am to 2 pm at Sala d'actes Carles Miravitlles (ICMAB).
