February 6-7, 2017 — HI-Vision (Hawaiʻi Workshop on Establishing Trans-Pacific Visualization Research & Education Collaboration Networks) was held at the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization and Applications at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UHM) in the U.S.
This Workshop was co-organized by Jason Leigh of UHM, Fang Pang Lin of the National Center for High Performance Computing/NARL in Taiwan, Shinji Shimojo of Osaka University in Japan, and Bill Chang, formerly of the U.S. National Science Foundation.
Twenty-eight researchers from Hawaii, Taiwan and Japan were invited to brainstorm on new visualizations applications requiring large-scale display walls in the areas of Renewable Energy, Coral Ecology, Water Resource Management, Disaster Response, and the Creative Arts and Culture — all issues that are of major importance to island nations in the Pacific Rim, such as Hawaii, Taiwan and Japan.
The group used SAGE2 as the primary brainstorming medium. First, they used SAGE2 to present their current and future research, then collectively used SAGE2ʻs post-it note feature to post their ideas on LAVAʻs CyberCANOE display wall. Then, attendees were asked to review the notes and create summaries, which were then posted for review.
