KAUST – Conference on Computational Imaging and Visualization (CIV)

Feb 29 2016 09:00 AM - Mar 02 2016 05:00 PM

​The Visual Computing Center at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology is hosting an international conference on Computational Imaging and Visualization.

This conference will explore the interface of Computational Imaging (i.e. the joint design of new imaging hardware and algorithms to capture and encode information), and Visualization (i.e. the generation of visual representations for scientific and other datasets). The focus of this conference will be on new methods and applications for computational imaging and scientific visualization in science, engineering, and medicine. 

KAUST CIV is an exciting opportunity to get together with visual computing experts from KAUST and abroad. The conference will feature a series of internationally renowned keynotes speakers, invited talks by faculty and researchers from KAUST, universities world-wide, and industry, as well as student poster sessions. Bringing renowned experts in the field of visual computing to one spot, KAUST CIV will offer engaging talks and plenty of room for discussions as well as the opportunity to meet in person with people who excel in their field, be it in academia or industry. 

KAUST is an international, graduate research university dedicated to advancing science and technology through interdisciplinary research, education, and innovation. Located on the shores of the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia, KAUST offers superb research facilities, generous assured research funding, and internationally competitive salaries, attracting top international faculty, scientists, engineers, and students to conduct curiosity-driven and goal-oriented research to address the world’s pressing scientific and technological challenges related sustainability in energy, water, food, and the environment.

On Wednesday, March 2, we will also be hosting an open house in the Visual Computer Center, Building 1, level 2, seaside. It will include exhibitors from local industry.

CIV is organized by the KAUST Visual Computing Center with financial support from the KAUST Office of Sponsored Research and co-sponsored by the KAUST Industry Collaboration Program (KICP), Industry Engagement Office (IEO)​
