Conference Trifecta

Posted June 17, 2005

If you had an interest in 3D simulation and visualization, this was a good week to be around MIT, since there were three closely-related conferences happening on campus: the Symposium on Solid and Physical Modeling, the Shape Modeling International Conference, and the huge Third M.I.T. Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics. Whew! Naturally I had to attend some interesting sessions, and fortunately nobody cared that I wasn't really registered.

A detailed write-up of all the sessions would be gigantic, and not that interesting, so I'll just mention a few things that struck me as somewhat insightful or worth noting for my own future reference.

All in all, it was a very full week of lectures, and greatly valuable to expand my picture of what possibilities are out there. I wish I could have taken the time to do this sort of unfocused survey when I was still at MIT.
