VIRTUAL REALITY ART / RESEARCH
I co-organized (with Helen-Nicole Kostis, UMBC/GEST & NASA/GSFC) two special curated panels on Scientific and BioMedical Visualization for the Computer Animation Festival.
A Journey from Outer to Inner Space: Scientific and Biomedical Stereoscopic Visualization Earth and lunar sciences, solar expeditions, galaxy formations, climate studies, mummy returns, and a journey inside the human body screened in state-of-theart Stereoscopic presentations in Real-D Theater! Panelists discussed the challenges, techniques, and software involved in producing stereoscopic scientific and biomedical visualizations. Panelists:
Tomorrow’s Yesterday: Scientific and Biomedical Visualization Screenings of state-of-the art Scientific and BioMedical Visualizations followed by discussions about innovative solutions, behind-the-scenes software developments, interdisciplinary collaboration, methods, techniques, and production pipelines. The goal of this panel was to present fresh work, capture interesting and under-represented visualization areas in the SIGGRAPH community, and contribute to definition of standards for technical development and production methods. The panel provided a balanced platform for exploration of the overlapping technical problems and complex solutions in scientific and biomedical visualizations knowledge. Panelists:
