The emerging technologies of Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) are promising to change dramatically the ways in which we perceive information and interact with it. VR/AR offer a natural, intuitive, and highly effective way for a collaborative data visualization and visual exploration. We will focus on two area of space science and exploration where these technologies can have a major impact: mission planning and operations, and data visualization of high-dimensionality abstract data spaces.

This symposium is sponsored and organized by the Keck Institute for Space Studies and by the Caltech-JPL Joint Initiative on Data Science and Technology. The symposium is open to all interested faculty, researchers, technologists, and students in Southern California (and beyond!).
