ODU's Noor Delivers Plenary Lecture at Computational Engineering Conference in Spain

Ahmed K. Noor, the William E. Lobeck Professor of Modeling, Simulation and Visualization Engineering at Old Dominion University, delivered the plenary lecture at an international conference on computational engineering in Valencia, Spain, earlier this month.

Noor's lecture, "Pathway to Future Virtual World Technologies and Their Role in Virtual Product Creation and Learning," was based on work done at ODU's Center for Advanced Engineering Environments (CAEE) in Newport News, which Noor heads.

Noor also demonstrated, with CAEE partner Eon Reality, the concept of three-dimensional, interactive, immersive meetings - where participants use realistic avatars of themselves to combine the efficiency of a teleconference with dynamic interactivity.

The 10th Annual International Conference on Computational Structures Technology, held Sept. 14-17 in Valencia, was a forum showcasing some of the most innovative computational engineering being done worldwide.

Other presentations covered areas such as modeling strategies for heterogeneous materials, and multigrid algorithms for optimal engineering computations.

The CAEE serves as a focal point for the diverse research activities pertaining to distributed collaborative synthesis and learning technologies and their application to future aerospace systems. These activities include the synergistic coupling of modeling; visual simulations; intelligent agents; multimedia and synthetic environments; human-computer interactions; computational intelligence; computational, information and collaboration technologies in multidisciplinary analysis; sensitivity studies optimization; and design and operation of future aerospace systems.
