Scientific Visualization Workshop Series: Fall 2018

Wednesdays 4:00-5:15 p.m.
Visualization Lab, Luddy Hall 4012

Organized by the IU Advanced Visualization Lab
Moderator: William R. Sherman, shermanw@iu.edu

This weekly series will present and discuss a variety of topics related to scientific visualization. We will discuss principles of perception, along with techniques and tools for creating visualizations from scientific datasets.

Participants will learn about modern tools for analyzing simulated and observed scientific data. Different types of data will be explored ranging from 3D volumetric scan data, to vector fields, molecular simulations, and point clouds. Methods for visualizing both static and time-varying data will be explored.

We will also explore different interface technologies as they are applied to visualization such as virtual and augmented reality, and 3D digitization and printing.


Here are the scheduled presentations. The order after 10/10/18 is tentative.
