USD Presidents Research Day focuses on technology across disciplines
Sponsored by the Vice President for Research and Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs at USD, President's Research Day is a showcase for specialized research and creative activities at The U. The public is invited to attend the program, which begins at 1:45 p.m. with a welcome. At 2 p.m., W. Brent Seales, Ph.D., director of the Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments at the University of Kentucky, will present "Research Synergies That Span Traditional Disciplines." The seminar will describe how interdisciplinary teams applying visualization techniques open new opportunities in a variety of fields. Seales' work includes the development of visualizing techniques for robotic surgery, and three-dimensional scanning of ancient papyrus scrolls too fragile to unroll.
Wednesday's program also includes a distinguished faculty panel moderated by Anne C. Moore, Ph.D., dean of libraries. The panel will discuss three areas of USD research and creative activity that apply to cutting edge technology. Panelists are Paula Mabee, Ph.D., professor of biology, Asai Asaithambi, Ph.D., chair of computer science, and Kurt Hackemer, Ph.D., professor of history and associate dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. Topics to be addressed include evolutionary informatics, digital access to the history of the northern Great Plains, and the blending of art, culture and computational sciences.
In addition to Seales' presentation and the distinguished faculty panel, recipients of the President's Awards for Research Excellence will be honored during President's Research Day. These awards, which represent extraordinary effort and achievement by the faculty, are presented annually to the University's top researchers and artists following a rigorous nomination and evaluation process.
