Parallel Visualization: Has it Come of Age?
Chuck Hansen, PhD, Prof. of Computer Science and Associate Director, Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute, University of Utah.
It has been 14 years since the first EGPGV. The graphics and visualization field has seen tremendous change during the past decade and a half. We have moved from superscalar processors to multi-core to many-core as ubiquitous computing platforms. What does this mean for parallel visualization? Has the field been passed by or is it leading others in the pursuit of parallel techniques as applied to science? As we move from the peta-scale range to exa-scale computing, many of the solutions today will no longer be sufficient. This will provide exciting applications for parallel visualization techniques. In this talk I will explore the state of the field and discuss potential benefits and challenges of high-throughput science both from the computational and the experimental perspectives for solving problems in difference science domains from neuroscience to combustion simulations.

Medical visualization tools must be based on medical user requirements
Anders Persson, MD, PhD, CMIV, Linköping University
This talk will take its starting point in state-of-the-art medical visualization and then discuss the need for a research agenda that focuses on the development of the next generation of medical visualization tools, emphasizing the fact that these tools must be based on medical user requirement and workflow studies as well as on new technical developments.
