Event description

Description

Your host for this meetup is Yamni Mohan, from Research Platforms Services, The University of Melbourne. Bring your own Laptop.

This meetup is being held on Thursday 10th August from 4.30pm for a 5pm start - 7.00pm. Beverages and cheese & dip platter will be served

Have you ever looked at plots in publication and wondered out loud how pretty they were? Have you ever looked at plots and thought 'these are hella ugly!'? Or perhaps they just weren't effective graphs? MATLAB can help. Using a combination of interactive tools and some code, MATLAB can make beautiful and easily reproducible plots. Come along to the meetup to find out more!

This is the first meetup in a series of MATLAB meetups to be organised in the second half of 2017. In this meetup, participants will participate in a guided discussion on what makes a good publication quality plot and work on a plot to make it better as a group.

Here is a proposed schedule for the event:

4.30-5.00 PM: Drinks and Nibbles

5:00-5:20PM: What makes a data visualisation effective?

5:20-6:00 PM: Editing plots in MATLAB

6:00-6:45 PM: Making a plot better as a group.

This event is bought to you by Research Platforms Services

A little bit about us......

We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in the Eastern Resource Centre, Room 329, Level 3 ( Building # 171) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!

Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.

As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
