OzViz 2010 Workshop

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.
