Little Rock Immersive Visualization Bootcamp
The third immersive visualization bootcamp was held in Little Rock on the University of Arkansas, Little Rock campus on October 22 - 24, 2014. Another great group of participants filled the hall, again with considerable interactions between participants and speakers. Our host facility was the Emerging Analytics Center, who provided help with the arrangements, even while transitioning to new leadership under Carolina Cruz-Neira.
Immersive visualization makes use of advanced display technologies such as the EAC CAVE at the University of Arkansas, Little Rock to enhance one's ability to see relationships among data representations. The goal of this series of bootcamps is to empower operators and users of immersive (aka virtual reality) visualization facilities with software tools that will enable them to visualize data in a variety of formats using their advanced displays. Much of the software discussed is open-source to enable participants to freely incorporate packages into their workflow suite.
Sponsors of the bootcamp were Indiana University Advanced Visualization Lab (AVL), Idaho National Laboratory Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES), Emerging Analytics Center, and Kitware, Inc.
