Scientific Visualization

Scientific visualization is an effective tool for data understanding. Unlike computer graphics, which emphasizes generating photo-like images, scientific visualization strives for accurate representations of thegiven data. It is from these representations that scientists can better visualize and understand their data.

The speakers will present state-of-the-art techniques in scientific visualization including an object-oriented approach, visualizing data from different grid types, new analysis techniques for understanding physical phenomena in oceanography data, volume rendering techniques for visualizing human brain data, and time-varying techniques for depicting flow phenomena in computational fluid dynamics. They will also discuss future directions of these techniques.
