Visualization in Science and Industry

For the second time, MFG Baden-Wuerttemberg presents trends in developement and application of visualization and simulation processes at this year's conference panel "Visualization in Science and Industry". Originally from the area of entertainment, visualization technologies have become an essential factor for added value within numerous lines of businesses. Enormous potential emerges from the exchange between science, software manufacturing and users. Sessions show fields of application and provide input for a convergent use.
The keynote address by Prof. Dr. Meinzer from the German Cancer Research Center shows the current trends in visualzation-technology in medicine, is followed by a series of case studies shown by leading companies and science organizations. They explore visualization as a key technology, which is relevant for a broad range of applications, ranging from engineering in the automotive sector, design to medical technology, architecture and archaeology.
