CTS IGERT welcomes Dr. Jason Leigh, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science and Director, Electronic Visualization Laboratory, who will present a seminar entitled, "The OptIPuter Project".

Monday, March 08, 2010
4:00 p.m.
Room 1000 SEO
Science and Engineering Offices
851 South Morgan Street

The OptIPuter, so named for its use of Optical networking, Internet Protocol, computer storage, processing and visualization technologies, is an envisioned infrastructure that tightly couples computational resources over parallel optical networks using the IP communication mechanism. The OptIPuter exploits a new world in which the central architectural element is optical networking, not computers - creating "supernetworks". This paradigm shift requires large-scale applications-driven, system experiments and a broad multidisciplinary team to understand and develop innovative solutions for a "LambdaGrid" world. The goal of this new architecture is to enable scientists who are generating terabytes and petabytes of data to interactively visualize, analyze, and correlate their data from multiple storage sites connected to optical networks.

Jason Leigh is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and director of the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Leigh is a co-founder of VRCO, the GeoWall Consortium and the Global Lambda Visualization Facility. Leigh currently led the visualization and collaboration research on the National Science Foundation's OptIPuter project, and EVL's Tele-Immersion research since 1995. His main area of interest is in developing collaboration technologies and techniques for supporting a wide range of applications ranging from the remote exploration of large-scale data, education and entertainment.
