The DOE Computer Graphics forum, which has been an annual event since the mid 1970s, is a venue where government-sponsored computer graphics/scientific visualization scientists, engineers, and practitioners have the opportunity to share recent research, development, and deployment results. Although the participants are primarily from DOE laboratories and DOE-funded universities, the forum has welcomed participants who are funded by other government agencies (e.g., DOD, NSF) to perform graphics and visualization work.
Although there are other venues for presenting and discussing graphics/visualization research, such as SIGGRAPH and IEEE Visualization, the DOE labs with their emphasis on petascale computation face unique challenges in visualization and data understanding. Thus, over the years, the forum has proven invaluable for sharing information and experiences, building cross-institutional collaborations, and coordinating efforts across programs.
