In the face of the data deluge and increasingly distributed teams, prior strategies toward information infrastructure and user interfaces are clearly insufficient, even quaint. It is critical that decision and policy makers are aware of the technological and historical context surrounding the development of these virtual and mirror world’s platforms. While shared, interactive 3D worlds are not a new frontier, ill-considered investments have built the same wheel over and over again – yet enterprises are left with no interchangeability or interoperation of these assets.
At a programmatic level, such a strategy is not sustainable. More and more leaders are realizing the necessity of R&D partnerships and the value of international standards in evolving information ecology. Join us for an exciting and informative briefing from the visualization faculty of Virginia Tech’s Center for Advanced Research Computing and Department of Computer Science on the research and technology trends that are driving investment and innovation in visual analysis and immersive training.
Located in Virginia Tech’s new research building in Ballston, attendees will experience, first-hand, the potential of the pixel and the power of perception using state-of-the-art display hardware. We will explore the principle research themes in the interdisciplinary field of visualization and demonstrate their application with case studies and examples.
Presentation by Nicholas F. Polys, Ph.D.
