3DVis Symposium on 3D Visualization Technologies in Cultural Heritage
Session 2: 3D Visualization in the Natural Sciences
Welcome to 3DVis. This symposium is themed around how practitioners in cultural heritage, ranging from natural science to humanities, are utilising cutting edge visualization technologies for research and public engagement. These novel technologies, digitization methods such as laser scanning and computed tomography and visualization technologies such as 3D printing, augmented reality and virtual reality, promise to revolutionise the ways in which researchers and institutions can organise, educate and facilitate cultural heritage. 3DVis has been organised to bring together experts in the field, both companies from industry with expertise in delivering such experiences and practitioners who design and require such technologies. This free, two-day event is sponsored by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and the University of Warwick.
Session 2: 3D Visualization in the Natural Sciences (1/12/20 4.30-6pm GMT): This session will discuss application of visualization in the natural sciences, with a particular focus on palaeontology and life sciences. This session will be opened by Dr. Imran Rahman, who will speak on the use of such technologies for STEM education in life sciences.
A full list of the speakers and their talks can be downloaded HERE.
Please note that the symposium is organised as four sessions - please use the links below to register for the other sessions you would like to attend:
Session 1: 3D Visualization in the Humanities (1/12/20 2-4pm GMT), will discuss applications of visualization technologies within the humanities.
Session 3: 3D Visualization and Industry (2/12/20 2-3.30pm GMT): This session will discuss how companies and industrial partners utilise these technologies for public engagement, such organizations sharing their expertise and experience.
