Graphics and Images for Publication and Presentation

This tutorial will introduce you to the tools and topics to consider when you are preparing graphics and images ‐ both 2D and 3D ‐ for your professional publications and/or presentations. We hope to demystify the idiosyncrasies of the graphics tools and concepts used in the process of creating publication quality graphics. Topics including image quality, resolution, raster and vector file formats, color, and accessibility will be covered. Relevant theoretical background will be included. Requirements from scientific publications and conferences will be addressed.

Practical examples using scientific visualization and plotting software such as MATLAB, ParaView, and Excel will be illustrated.
