VisSym 2003 Trip Report

Really interesting conference, nice place (Grenoble), interesting people. I have learned a lot, not only in the Visualization field, but also on how to deliver a talk and use at best the congress time. Here are some very quick notes to remember my discoveries.

Really good talks…

…and the ones to forget

Ideas on talk structure

General ideas on the congress

Well, back to the talks

Here are the talks I enjoyed more:

Ebert one of the first talks focused on visualization usability and not on a new technique. Explores why a certain technique should be used and which are the drawbacks.
Doleisch use of InfoViz techniques to help solve SciViz problem.
Carr, Weber puts the basis for building a scalar field summarizer.
Nielson another approach to a problem I had (volume intersection in computer vision)
Scheuermann nice survey of the field.
General importance of GPU to offload CPU workload.

And then…

See you at VisSym2004!
