On Friday, Nov. 4, the University of Utah’s Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute is hosting SCIx, a one-day open house to showcase the innovative research taking place at the institute. John Warnock, co-founder of Adode and a pioneer in computer graphics, will give a keynote address at the event.
The open house takes place from 11:00 am to 6:30 pm at the Warnock Engineering Building, 72 S. Central Campus Drive in Salt Lake City. The keynote address takes place at 4:00 pm in the building’s auditorium.
SCIx is free and open to the public. SCIx is a celebration of multidisciplinary breakthroughs in scientific computing, image analysis and visualization, and their impact on fields as diverse as medical imaging and oil and gas exploration. Attendees can visit labs, talk to researchers, and view brief demonstrations.

The SCI Institute has established itself as an internationally recognized leader in visualization, scientific computing, and image analysis. The overarching research objective is to create new scientific computing techniques, tools, and systems that enable solutions to problems affecting various aspects of human life. Institute researchers focus on computational and imaging problems in such disciplines as biomedicine, geophysics, combustion, molecular dynamics, fluid dynamics, and atmospheric dispersion.
The event is highly recommended for business people looking to learn about exciting new commercialization possibilities, and for middle school and high school students interested in engineering and other technical fields.
Several USTAR researchers are active in the SCI Institute, including associate director Guido Gerig and faculty members Orly Alter, P. Thomas Fletcher, Miriah Meyer, and Tolga Tasdizen.
