Twelve invited talks and a panel discussion formed the program of IllustraVis09. We hosted a discussion arena for experts and interested audience from different disciplines that play important role in application of illustrative visualization in science. We had contributions from first-class speakers from
the international visualization research community,
professional medical and geological illustrators, and
experts from medical, oil&gas, and earth science field from the Bergen area.
It is based on contributions from the following invited speakers (including presentation slides and videos):
Kari C. Toverud, Association of Medical Illustrators
Stefan Bruckner, Vienna University of Technology
David Laidlaw, Brown University
Igor Plavka, SME newspaper
Mario Costa Sousa, University of Calgary
Robert Williams, Norwegian Petroleum Directorate
Daniel Patel, University of Bergen
Alexandra Baer, University of Magdeburg
Timo Ropinski, University of Münster
Joaquim Jorge, University of Lisbon
Denis Kalkofen, Graz University of Technology
Tobias Isenberg, University of Groningen
M. Eduard Gröller, Vienna University of Technology
Odd Helge Gilja, Haukeland University Hospital
William Helland-Hansen, University of Bergen
Christopher Giertsen, Christian Michelsen Research
We have intentionally selected speakers from different areas to achieve a melting pot effect for generating novel views on particular domain problems from medicine a oil&gas field, possibly utilizing illustrative visualization technology. We have designed the character of the event as a sandwich layout, where the main focus is the visualization technology, which is from one side driven by the needs of respective domain and is inspired from another side by creativity from illustration.
The seminar is planned for two days with twelve presentations and a panel discussion. For the first day we plan four talks on fundamentals in illustrative visualization. The second day will be dedicated to relating illustrative visualization to the application of this new visualization technology, primarily in the oil & gas sector and in medicine.
The organization of IllustraVis09 is carried out by the Visualization Group at the Department of Informatics, University of Bergen. The seminar talks are held in the Vilvite Center, on 3rd and 4th of June 2009. Organization of this event will be impossible without generous support of StatoilHydro, Research Council of Norway, Christian Michelsen Research, NORSIGD, MedViz Network, and Department of Informatics, UiB.
