This panel will look at how data is transforming and affecting scientific research and communication, from data visualisation in the media to data-intensive science in various fields. We'll hear from leading scientists, media organisations such as The Guardian, and experts in infrastructure about their take on working with data in the digital age and how they way we interact with information is changing.

MaryAnn will set the tone for the workshops and explain the current limitations and need for better use of tools and information in the context of SMA, a rare disease that afflicts infants and toddlers, and how she's working to move closer to a cure.
This workshop will start with how to get the most out of online communication tools such as Google+, Twitter, and 3rd party twitter tools such as Storify and dipity. We’ll also mention account management tools including CoTweet and Tweetdeck. We’re able to cover all angles from how to practically use the tools most beneficially in an institutional or academic environment, to how to measure their impact via statistics and online “kudos” tools. Please do come with your own goals and questions and we can tailor the workshop accordingly.
