1. Vincent Fazio, software developer, Mineral Resources Division, CSIRO

Title: AuScope 3D Geological Models Portal

Abstract: The AuScope 3D Geomodels portal enables you to explore a wide range of geological models from all around Australia in 3D. The models are supported by links to other informative sources, namely AuScope Portal, Geoscience Australia, and the state and territory geological surveys' websites. In this presentation I will outline the main features of the portal from a user’s perspective and ‘lift the hood’ in order to reveal how its internals function.

2. Dr. Gillian Arrighi, University of Newcastle
Title: Visualising Newcastle’s heritage-listed Victoria Theatre: new challenges for traditional research

Abstract: ‘Visualising the Victoria’ is part of a national research project AusStage that is seeking to find new ways of understanding lost theatre spaces through digital visualisation of historic/archival data. Theatre is a visual and aural medium that is experienced through the body of the present observer in real time. Seeking to preference the visual/aural experience over text-based outcomes, this project is predicated on the concept that theatre buildings can be ‘read’ and re-understood as places of shared cultural meaning.

Bio: Dr Gillian Arrighi is Senior Lecturer in Creative and Performing Arts in the School of Creative Industries, University of Newcastle. Her research concerning the late-Victorian heritage-listed Victoria Theatre in Newcastle (1891) has been rendered as an immersive Virtual Reality experience and in other visual formats.
