International Workshop on
Visualization and Mathematics 1995
Under Sponsorship of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and with Support of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (MPG)
New: "A selection of contributions for VisMath95 is available now.
The main goal of this workshop is to bring together mathematicians and experts from scientific visualization to close the gap between both areas. Latest algorithms and applications will be presented, visions and requests for the next generation of scientific computing environments will be addressed, and common research interests will be identified. The focus will be on new mathematical concepts and on mathematical applications in scientific visualization.
The following topics will be covered:
- applications in differential geometry and partial differential equations
- algorithmic aspects of adaptive techniques in space and time
- algorithmic representation of objects for storage and exchange
- time control of animated objects and corresponding algorithms
- new techniques for visualizing mathematical objects
- integration of visualization and numerical computation
- natural programming (visual, object-oriented, symbolic approaches).
Date and Location
The workshop has taken place at the appealing Harnack-Haus in Berlin-Dahlem. The Harnack-Haus belongs to the German Max-Planck-Gesellschaft and has been built by their predecessor, the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft. With our workshop we stay in the house's long tradition as an international meeting place for scientists.
Location: Harnack-Haus in Berlin-Dahlem
Date: May 30 - June 2, 1995
The workshop included invited and contributed talks. Invited talks were 45 minutes, contributed talks 20 minutes. A program and extended abstracts are available. Workshop participants received a printed abstract volume. We are planning to publish a selection of articles and are currently in contact with publishers.
As a supplement a popular-science video night with the title CyberMath was organized in a Berlin cinema, open for a general audience.
