The Pistoia Alliance Data Visualization Project Team is hosting its first symposium from Tuesday, January 18 to Wednesday, January 19, 2022. This virtual symposium will be held over two half days with interactive sessions to enable our community to learn and meet.


The theme of the workshop is to share and learn about best practices in the R&D life sciences, identify common challenges encountered in our field, and shape opportunities for collaboration. You can expect a series of short webinars from experts in the field and some interactive workshops to allow the community space to explore solutions.


Data visualization is the graphical representation of quantitative and qualitative information to reinforce human cognition. The interpretation and understanding emanating from the analysis of scientific data can be optimized by incorporating best practices, strategies, and principles.



We are delighted to announce that we have the following confirmed speakers. More to be announced soon.
