An engaging poster

Laureates of mathematics and computer science meet the next generation
Heidelberg Laureate Forum

I’m not fond of conference posters. They’re often filled with details meaningful to the author but uninviting to an uninitiated observer.

However, there was a poster at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum that drew me in. The poster told a story. Here’s how it begins:


It is designed in the style of an xkcd comic strip and so it naturally stands out. I came for the comics, but I stayed for the story. The authors got me to willingly read their poster.

The title of the poster is “Data fusion by simultaneous matrix tri-factorization” by Marinka Zitnik and Blaz Zupan. It references this journal article with a similar title.
