Developing Tools for Scientific Visualization of Innovative Research Tools
Timothy Urness, from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Drake University, will give the first CS seminar of the on Monday, September 24, at 3:30 PM in 322 ITTC.
The title of Dr. Urness's talk is "Developing Tools for Scientific Visualization of Innovative Research Tools". Here is the abstract for his talk:
Scientific research often involves developing theories about the complex relationships between multiple scalar and vector quantities. In this talk, I will discuss several techniques developed to facilitate the simultaneous visualization of multiple quantities in turbulent flow data. The ultimate goal of this work is to enable researchers to obtain a succinct, meaningful visual summary of the contents of a dataset in which the key physical structures from multiple distributions can be understood both independently and in the context of other distributions.
Timothy Urness is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Drake University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2006. His research interests include scientific vizualization, virtual reality, and computer science education.

As a discipline, computer science is relatively young and characterized by rapid technological advances. This dynamism is reflected in the interests of Mark Fienup, associate professor of computer science: Parallel computing, routing and computer networks, and computer science education are all greatly affected by the changing nature of computer science....
