Titel: Experimental Pitfalls


We all run experiments to prove the value of what we do and to try to persuade others that our visualisations are not just pretty but have a useful function outside the research team. But designing and conducting experiments is full of pitfalls: equipment failure, limited participant pool, confounding factors, incomplete data etc. And results are often uncertain and always limited. In my 20+ years of running experiments, I have made numerous mistakes - I estimate that I have thrown away about as much data as I have published. In this talk, I discuss some of my failures, highlighting the things that went wrong. As part of this, I discuss the value of conducting follow-on experiments, and the danger of relying on p-values.
