Welcome to vizNET


vizNET is a collaboration between a number of visualization centres in the UK that has been established to share knowledge, communicate best practice between application domains, provide training and support to researchers in visualization.

The visualization support network spans across the UK academic research community, offering technical guidance to both new and advanced users. The network consolidates the strength of existing major visualization centres and groups across the UK, helping the UK to realise the full potential of emerging visualization techniques and resources at both a national and regional level. vizNET is funded by the JISC Support of Research Committee.


vizNET Conference 2009

The 3rd Interdisciplinary Conference on Intersections of Visualization Practices and Techniques

29th - 30th October, Loughborough University

Update: Slides for many of the presentations are now available from the programme page

A JISC funded joint event hosted by vizNET at Loughborough University.

vizNET 2009 aims to help new researchers and postgraduates within UK academia utilise visualization to improve their own analysis and research.

Visualization is an important tool for communicating and analysing complex information in many disciplines. Advances in numerical simulations and imaging techniques have provided scientists with a new wealth of detail into the natural world, but also new challenges in visualization analysis. This year there is a special focus on applied science and engineering disciplines, specifically targeting large data set problems that are often encountered within these fields.

TP.CG.09 - Call for Papers

The Theory and Practice of Computer Graphics 2009 Conference (TP.CG.09) is requesting submissions of academic papers on computer graphics. All accepted papers will be published by Eurographics, held on their Digital Library, and will be available at the conference.

The aim of the conference is to focus on both the theoretical and practical aspects of Computer Graphics and to bring together top practitioners, users and researchers, which will hopefully inspire further collaboration between participants particularly between academia and industry.

The Showcase 2009 competition is now open


CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – vizNET Uses of Visualization Showcase: 4th Year

All those working in the area of visualization are invited to submit work for the vizNET Uses of Visualization Showcase. The goal is to disseminate good practice and provide stimulation to users and developers of visualization in all application domains. Applications are invited from all domains in the arts, sciences and humanities. The Showcase is open to entries from around the world.

vizNET Showcase 2008 Winners

This year's first prize winners are Chris Goodyer and Ken Brodlie, from Leeds University with their entry on 3D surface visualization using high resolution display walls.

After careful deliberation and a lot of agonising the judging panel is proud to announce the winners of the 2008 vizNET Showcase. As with other years, this is always a difficult process and the entries were judged according to how well they met this year's criteria. The judges took into account the usefulness, novelty and the impact that the visualization had in the application domain.
