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