University hosts International Conference on Cyberworlds

2 September 09

Five distinguished professors will be discussing a wide range of topics related to Cyberworlds at the University of Bradford during the International Conference on Cyberworlds 2009.

Cyberworlds are information worlds being formed on the Internet either intentionally or spontaneously, with or without design. As information worlds, they are either virtual or real, and may be both.

The event hosted by the University's School of Computing, Informatics and Media (SCIM), will run from  Monday 7 September to Friday 11 September and will provide an opportunity for academics, scientists and engineers from around the world to share the latest research, ideas and developments in these fields. The conference will consist of full paper sessions and tutorials which will demonstrate the state-of-the-art in the fields of Cyberworlds and Visual Computing.
The five day event also includes key-note lectures from distinguished speakers, Professor William Dutton (University of Oxford) Professor Adrian Hilton (University of Surrey), Professor Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann (University of Geneva), Professor Daniel Thalmann (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), and Professor Dr Frank Van Reeth (University of Hasselt), who will be discussing a wide-range of topics related to cyberworlds.

There will also be two pre-conference tutorials on Geometric Algebra for Computer Graphics by Proffessor John Vince, (Bournemouth University) and Real-Time Individualized Virtual Humans by Professor Nadia Magnenat Thalmann (University of Geneva) and Professor Daniel Thalmann (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology).

The local organisers are Professor Rae Earnshaw, Professor Hassan Ugail, Dr Rami Qahwaji, Dr Stan Ipson and Miss Rona Wilson from the School of Computing, Informatics and Media. They said "We are delighted to host this international event in Bradford. Cyberworlds 2009 conference will bring together world leaders and researchers who will share and discuss ideas and practice in the field.  An event of this nature is especially relevant to the School of Computing, Informatics and Media at Bradford where cyberworlds and visual computing research are at the forefront."
