EVL and Calit2 Showcase OptIPuter Technology at AAAS Annual Meeting
Participants: Laura Wolf, Maxine Brown, Joseph Keefe (UCSD), Philip Weber (UCSD), Alex Betts (NCSA)
Laura Wolf attended the 2008 Annual Meeting of AAAS in Boston February 14-18, where she met with meeting attendees and the general public to explain the NSF-funded International Research Network Connections (IRNC) program and the OptIPuter project. She participated in several scientific visualization application demonstrations with collaborators Joe Keefe and Phil Weber, both of UCSD / Calit2, using the OptIPortable, a 15 panel high-resolution LCD display.
Each year at the AAAS Annual Meeting, science and technology professionals - from across disciplines and around the world - gather to discuss new research, emerging trends, and exciting new possibilities.
The theme of this meeting, Science and Technology from a Global Perspective, emphasized the power of science and technology as well as education to assist less-developed segments of the world society, to improve partnerships among already-developed countries, and to spur knowledge-driven transformation across a host of fields.
