OzViz 2010 Presentation Program & Registration

posted Nov 14, 2010, 7:09 PM by Con Caris   [ updated Nov 16, 2010, 3:16 PM ]

The OzViz 2010 presentations will be held on 2nd and 3rd of December 2010 at the Queensland Bioscience Precinct, University of Queensland. The workshop will feature 20 presentations by researchers covering a range of techniques and technologies including computational fluid dynamics, colour mapping, real-time 2D->2D+Depth video conversion, real-time art and interactive graphics, high-performance GPU based visualisualisation, 3D data fusion, multi-resoultion volume rendering, high-resolution visualisation platforms and visualisation of vector fields, subsurface radar, microscopy, large open pit mines and virtual reality using computer gaming enviroments.

The keynote talk this year will be presented by Gary Delaney from CSIRO's CMIS group (Computational Modelling Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics). Gary will highlight issues in the "Visualisation of complex large scale industrial and geophysical fluid and particle flows". Particle methods are powerful tools for predicting the transient behaviour of particle and fluid based systems found in industrial applications and geophysical flows. They present substantial challenges for visualisation. These include methods for rendering individual particulates or methods for generating meshes required for visualising the complex free surfaces that are reconstructed from the particles of specific fluid flows.

 

This year's presentation will also include a visit to the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium where the curator, Mark Rigby, will present on “Visualising A Universe Of Opportunity“. The presentation will highlight examples of fulldome immersive programs, real-time flying through the Solar System and beyond, as well as examples of short artistic films created around the world for the dome environment and shown at various Domefest presentations in recent years. The latest upgrade at the planetarium this year has made the facility Australia’s most advanced digital planetarium. 

 
The program for the presentations is available here and PDF here.

 
Registation for the presentations is free. For catering purposes, please sign up here.
 
See you there :-)
 

OzViz 2010 OpenCL Workshop Registration

posted Sep 30, 2010, 11:51 PM by Con Caris

OzViz 2010 will start with a one day workshop on OpenCL* (Open Computing Language at the Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies, Pullenvale. The aim of the OpenCL workshop will be to provide registered attendees with an intensive one day course which covers both a general introduction as well more advanced topics showcasing OpenCL as a technology platform. Speakers from both industry and academia will discuss a range of subjects, including core fundamentals, hardware architectures, and parallel programming.
 
The schedule for the workshop is available here.

Registation is free for the OpenCL workshop, so if you are interested in attending, please sign up here.

OzViz 2010 Workshop

posted Sep 30, 2010, 11:06 PM by Con Caris   [ updated Oct 4, 2010, 8:20 PM ]

2010 is rapidly moving ahead and OzViz is not too far away. This year, we are going to start with a one day OpenCL workshop with invited speakers and live demonstrations at the Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies, Pullenvale. This will be followed by a two day workshop for presentations and posters at the Queensland Bioscience Precinct, University of Queensland.
 
We very interested in what you are doing in the ever expanding universe of visualisation. This includes academic and non-academic work, works in progress, an innovative solution to a particular problem/issue and student projects. We are looking for a cross section of visualisation development activities from areas such as education, industry and business. Presentations do not have to be science based so we encourage as many people as possible to present. You can submit your work in any of the following ways:  

(1) Oral presentation + short abstract
(2) Oral presentation + short paper 
(3) Poster + short abstract or paper

Registration is free for both the OpenCL workshop and the paper/poster presentations. Lunch will be provided each day free of charge and dinner will be held on the second evening (2nd Dec) at a reasonably priced restaurant. The restaurant will be in the city in order to minimise transportation costs.
 

The keynote talk this year will be presented by Gary Delaney from CSIRO's CMIS group (Computational Modelling Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics). Gary will highlight issues in the "Visualisation of complex large scale industrial and geophysical fluid and particle flows". Particle methods are powerful tools for predicting the transient behaviour of particle and fluid based systems found in industrial applications and geophysical flows. They present substantial challenges for visualisation. These include methods for rendering individual particulates or methods for generating meshes required for visualising the complex free surfaces that are reconstructed from the particles of specific fluid flows.

 
I'd encourage the OzViz community to remind colleagues of our annual event and get them to sign up to the list (OzViz mailing list) and join us at the workshop.
We look forward to seeing you all in Brisbane.
 
 

OzViz showreel

posted Sep 28, 2008, 11:47 PM by Paul Bourke   [ updated Sep 12, 2009, 10:46 PM ]

2009 OzViz Visualisation Showreel

Coinciding with OzViz 2009 will be a compilation of images/animations from people working in the visualisation field in Australia. This is a chance to show off your visualisation outcomes to the group and serves as a good way to publicise/promote the activities within our respective organisations. The resulting showreel will be provided as a free DVD handout to those attending the OzViz 2009 workshop, presenters at OzViz are particularly encouraged to submit material related to their talks.

You are now invited to submit material for this showreel, the deadline for submissions is the 16th November 2009. Entries will be accepted in time order for as long as there is space available on the DVD.

The format of the showreel will be similar to 2008. For optimal results it is recommended that contributors provide animations at HD resolution (1920x1080, square pixels) and a frame rate of 30fps. These can be supplied as individual frames or alternatively as QuickTime movies with a high quality compression codec. Any associated audio must match the length of the video exactly. Other formats will be accepted as long as they can be reasonably integrated into the production software being used. If the title and credits are not part of the content provided then title and credit information should be provided as a separate text file and an introduction will be created for your submission.

Submissions (hard drives and DVDs) should be sent to Paul Bourke, M024, 35 Stirling Hwy, Crawley, University of Western Australia, Perth 6009. Any questions by email: paul.bourke@uwa.edu.au

2008 Workshop

posted Sep 25, 2008, 7:00 PM by Drew Whitehouse   [ updated Sep 25, 2008, 7:09 PM ]

Hi all,

It's fast approaching the end of the year and that means it's time for another OzViz Workshop. The ANU Supercomputer Facility will be your host this year and I thought I'd give everyone a reminder to start thinking about what they might present. The format will be similar to previous workshops - short presentations of between 15-30 minutes, the exact figure will depend on how many presenters we get. I'd encourage as many people as possible to present. Works in progress, visualization breakdowns, student projects and Nobel prize worthy research breakthroughs are all suitable topics.

The cost of the workshop will be minimal, most likely $0. The current plan is to book tables at a reasonably priced restaurant and negotiate a fixed price for the meal and have people turn up with the right amount in cash. The restaurant we have in mind is in Civic so I would encourage people to find accommodation near the city so as to minimise transportion.

I'd encourage the OzViz community to remind colleagues of our existence and get them to sign up to the list and join us at the workshop.

We look forward to seeing you all in Canberra,

Drew
