You know this situation: you need to get an overview of an unknown field of research - and you need it fast. In this session, you will learn how to approach this task using Open Knowledge Maps, a visual discovery tool. Together with other participants, you will explore unknown research fields in a fun and fast-paced mix between a virtual scavenger hunt and a pub quiz. You will learn what makes a badass librarian and why the city of Athens is almost synonymous with insomnia in some communities. And you may even win a dinosaur-related prize in the end!
