LAST CALL FOR INNOVATIVE VISUALIZATIONS FOR SC2003 CONFERENCE OPENING VIDEO

PHOENIX, Az. - Researchers who have created innovative computer visualizations are invited to submit their images for inclusion in a video to be played at the opening of the SC2003 conference on high-performance computing in November.

Due to some technical glitches, the deadline for submitting visualizations has been extended to Monday, Sept. 15.

“This is a great way to showcase your work before an audience of your peers,” said Kevin Gecsi of the Ohio Supercomputer Center and lead producer for the video. “We’ve received some very compelling material so far, but want even more.”

Here's how to submit your work for consideration: Quicktime movies, mpegs, avi, etc need to be at least 640x480 resolution (or larger). Files can be uploaded via ftp to corvaire.ovl.osc.edu or ftp://tmp@corvaire.ovl.osc.edu. Use the following information to access the page: user: tmp and password: oscftp1.

Drop files anywhere and email gecsi@osc.edu with the name of the files uploaded. Visualizations on tape should be in either Mini-DV or DVCpro format and should be mailed to Kevin Gecsi, Ohio Supercomputer Center, 1224 Kinnear Rd., Columbus, OH 43212-1163.

The video will be shown as a prelude to the opening session of the conference technical program at a session that traditionally attracts about 2,000 attendees. This year’s conference, with the theme of “Igniting Innovation,” will be held Nov. 15-21 at the Phoenix Civic Plaza Convention Center in Arizona.
