Immersive Visualization Bootcamps
The Advanced Visualization Lab at Indiana University, in cooperation with
the Center for Advanced Energy Studies at the Idaho National Laboratory,
and Kitware Inc.
are hosting a series of bootcamps to provide information to users
and potential users of immersive technologies (aka virtual reality),
such as CAVE-style and head-based-displays for the purpose of
The most recent bootcamp was held October 22-24, 2014 at
the Emerging Analytics Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Our bootcamps are hosted in multiple locations in order to make them
more accessible to operators at smaller labs with limited budgets
(though anyone is invited, and we have had some international attendees).
Our 2013 "bootcamps" were held in Indianapolis Indiana (March),
and Laramie Wyoming (June).
Offering multiple, smaller, bootcamps enables a more intimate and
hands-on experience, along with more flexible travel opportunities.
The content of the offerings are generally consistent.
We are discussing the possibility of one or two bootcamps that could be
held in 2015.
The Indianapolis and Laramie bootcamps held in 2013 were both highly
The goal of these bootcamps is to empower immersive (aka virtual reality)
visualization facilities with software tools that will enable them to
visualize data in a variety of formats within their advanced displays.
The software presented will primarily be open-source, allowing participants
to freely incorporate packages into their workflow suite.
Standard topics include:
- General Purpose Vis (Immersive ParaView)
- Point-cloud data (LidarViewer)
- Volume Rendering (Toirt Samhlaigh)
- Molecular viewer (VMD)
- Matlab VR interface
- Programmable Vis (VTK)
- System configuration
- Low-cost Immersive Systems
- Human Computer Interface considerations
- Workflow examples at INL
- Interaction capabilities
- Unity-3D and virtual reality
- Supported input devices
Registration is $250 per person. Many meals will be provided to
encourage discussion and collaborations. Space is limited to 25
participants per event in order to maximize hands-on time.
Bootcamps begin at 1:00pm on the first day, lasting two working day
equivalents, ending at noon on the third day.
