User group meeting in Washington, DC

Where: Hotel Helix, Washington, DC
When: January 23, 2008

The event was planned by Paul Martz and Bob Kuehne, who were giving an OSG class Jan. 21-23 in Washington. The meeting place was a conference room in the hotel. Attendees included (please add/correct this if necessary):

  • Paul Martz (Skew Matrix Software)
  • Bob Kuehne (Blue Newt Software)
  • Dave Wolfe (Fifth Sally Software)
  • Eric Sokolowsky (NASA Goddard)
  • Paul Brewster (NASA Langley)
  • Glenn Waldron (Pelican Mapping)
  • Donald R. Leich (Intelligent Light)
  • Steven G. Satterfield (NIST)
  • John Kelso (NIST)
  • Nevin Fry (not sure what company he works for, but it's near DC)
  • Jean-Sébastien Guay (CM Labs Simulations Inc.)

In general we went around discussing versions of OSG used, problems in our applications, what tools they used as well as suggesting possible solutions to specific problems or situations. Donald also showed some very nice videos of what they're doing with real-time visualization of large CFD result sets, and Jean-Sébastien did a quick presentation and demo of what CM Labs does (integration of our high quality physics engine, Vortex, with OSG in various simulators).

Paul and Bob took photos which I hope will be post soon.
