June 2008 VGV08 and Congrats to Mike Bennett
Irish Graduate Student Symposium on
Vision, Graphics and Visualisation(VGV08)
Trinity College Dublin
On the back of an IRCSET exploratory Graduate Research Education Program
exploratory grant myself and colleagues in Dublin City University and Trinity
College Dublin organised VGV08
in June 2008. Our aim was to provide a stimulating space for young
researchers and Ph.D. students to present the results of their research
and to interact with their scientific peers, in a friendly and constructive environment.
One of my postgrads Mike Bennett received the best poster award at this event and
was presented with an award for his poster "Understanding Distance & How Humans
See Interfaces & Designs" from one of our industrial partners.
Thanks to Trinity College Dublin and Gerard Lacey for the lions share of the
organisation on this! It was a great atmosphere and very interesting to see the
work on display. I look forward to following up with students on quadruped animation and
large graph drawing. Thanks also to Gerry for allowing a number of our
ODCSSS research summer interns to attend.
Given the wealth of research across Ireland in Vision, Graphics and Visualisation
I hope this becomes an annual event for academics, graduate students and industry
partners alike! Roll on 2009!
