The Visual Computing Forum, or VCF, is a
series of seminars organized by the visualization
group with selected talks from the fields of
visualization, image processing, computer graphics,
and so on. The individual seminars are arranged
approximately once a month, on Fridays from 11am to
12am, and they will be interleaved with the MedViz seminars.
They will be held either at the Høyteknologisenteret
or at the VilVite
If you wish to be informed about upcomming VCF events, please write an e-mail to "email@example.com", "Helwig.Hauser@UIB.no" or "Sergej.Stoppel@UIB.no".

Title: What is going on at the IRIS offices in the 8th floor?
Speaker: Rodica Mihai and Geir Nævdal
Place: Room 3137, 3rd floor Høyteknologisenteret
Time: Friday January 29, 2016, from 10:15am to 11:00am
IRIS has an extensive research activity within energy, social sciences and marine biology. Main areas for IRIS
Energy are drilling and well technology, reservoir technology, green technologies and research testing
We will give a short introduction to our work within real time modelling of the drilling process and name
some of its challenges. Products of this work are among others, an unique simulation environment called
Virtual Rig as well as automated drilling solutions which have been successfully implemented offshore.
In the second part of the presentation we will introduce shortly our work on ensemble based methods for
large scale parameter estimation and optimizations problems, with a particular focus on flow in porous
media, namely oil reservoirs.
Main research area in IRIS has been so far oil related but we have currently increasing ongoing research
activity to apply similar techniques within other research areas such as medicine research, i.e. blood flow
