International Workshop on Volume Graphics

June 20-21,  2005

Stony Brook, New York, USA


The advances in volume visualization over the past decades, coupled with the rapid increase in computer power, suggest that volume visualization may be developed into volume graphics, as a general purpose graphics technology. In order to explore further the potential of volume-based techniques, especially beyond the scope of volume visualization, it is necessary to bring together researchers and applications developers from both the academic and industry sectors who are working, or wish to work, on volume-based graphics techniques. The objective of the Volume Graphics Workshop Series is therefore to provide the international computer graphics community with a platform to: 
  • review and assess the developments of techniques for volume-based modeling, rendering, manipulation and applications;
  • develop a scientific framework for the research and development in volume graphics as an emerging sub-field of computer graphics, and compile a clear picture of existing knowledge and topics for further investigation;
  • challenge researchers in areas of volume visualization and other volume-based graphics work to develop their work further in order to impact on the mainstream computer graphics, and to explore a wider range of applications.
The program of the Workshops include paper presentations, keynote lectures, panels, and industrial speakers, focusing on the latest development of volume graphics. The workshop ay Stony Brook was the fourth workshop in the series, after a successful first meeting in Swansea, Wales, in March 1999. 

VG05 was hosted by the State University of New York at Stony Brook, located at the North Shore of Long Island, NY. The venue offered the relaxing atmosphere of a weekend retreat, with the bustling life of New York City just below the horizon. The next workshop will be held along with Siggraph 2006 in Boston.

New!! The panel presentations are now available in the Program section.

VG05 was part of Stony Brook Graphics Week, consisting of VG05, Computer Graphics International 2005 and the Point-Based Rendering Symposium 2005.
