Part of the Eurographics book series (EUROGRAPH)


Visualization in scientific computing integrates many different computer technologies. Among them two are evolving rapidly: the World Wide Web and Virtual Reality. These issues were discussed during paper presentations, and were even more precisely debated during dedicated panel sessions in the Eighth Eurographics Workshop on ViSC. This paper summarises and consolidates information that circulated among participants, but also provides additional sources of information on these topics.
