Pragmatics of Graphs and Charts: poster presentation at XPrag 2022

September 24, 2022

Francesca Bonalumi, Ákos Szegőfi and Christophe Heintz (from the ACES), and Liangqi Li and Nausicaa Pouscoulous (from UCL) have presented their findings on the “Pragmatics of Graph” at the XPrag 2022 Conference in Pavia, Italy, on the 22nd-23rd of September. Their experiment show that graphs are interpreted in view of the context in which they occur. This, they argue, suggest that people deploy similar pragmatic processes when they interpret graphs as they do when they interpret verbal communication. Their findings bear relevance on other fields, particularly in misinformation research on data visualizations. Check out their poster below!
