Events: IllustraVis09

3rd-4th of June, VilVite Center, Bergen

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.
Call for papers, special issue on Illustrative Visualization, Computers and Graphics, August 2010.

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.

Target Audience

Patel et al. 08: The Seismic Analyzer: Interpreting and Illustrating 2D Seismic DataThe target audience covers, analogously to the spirit of the event, a wide spectrum of disciplines. This includes visualization researchers, graphics programmers, illustrators, medical pesonnel, earth scientists, oil&gas industry representatives, and others interested in automated techniques for meaningful visual depictions of the complex digital data.


Viola et al. 08: Illustrated Ultrasound for Multimodal Image InterpretationThe 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.
