We cordially invite you to participate in Ozviz 2009, which will be held on the 3rd and 4th of December 2009 and hosted by the Monash e-Research Centre at Monash University, Clayton, Victoria.

The workshop will feature 22 presentations by researchers from the earth sciences, the life sciences, astronomy, neuroimaging, urban modelling, mathematics and computer science. A range of techniques and technologies will be presented, including biological visualisation, volume rendering, 3D reconstruction, image processing, scene reconstruction, GPU rendering, animation and immersive visualisation.

The workshop is free to everyone who registers. There will be a workshop dinner organised on the 3rd which we encourage you to attend. The cost of dinner will be approximately $40.

We are pleased to announce the keynote speaker will be Professor Rob Lewis, foundation chair of X-ray and Synchrotron Physics at Monash University and the Director of the Monash Centre for Synchrotron Science. We expect synchrotron science to be a major driver of imaging and visualisation in the Clayton district and across Australia, and we are privileged to have Professor Lewis present his vision.

There will be a joint session on 3D bioimaging in conjunction with the Live Cell Imaging Workshop (LCI09) organised by Monash Micro Imaging.

This session, held on the 4th of December, will feature a keynote presentation by Dr Marius Messerli, CEO of Bitplane which develops the Imaris toolbox widely used for microscopy visualisation, and other speakers who utilise 3D visualisation and analysis.

We have organised a tour of The Australian Synchrotron on Friday the 4th. Please note that places for this tour are limited so please register promptly if you are interested in attending.
