Simplifying collaboration in co-located virtual environments using the active-passive approach (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Estrada, J. G., Springer, J. P., & Wright, H. (2015). Simplifying collaboration in co-located virtual environments using the active-passive approach. doi:10.1109/3DCVE.2015.7153590

The design and implementation of co-located immersive virtual environments with equal interaction possibilities for all participants is a complex topic. The main problem, on a fundamental technical level, is the difficulty of providing perspective-co... Read More

Phenomenal regression to the real object in physical and virtual worlds (2014)
Journal Article
Elner, K. W., & Wright, H. (2015). Phenomenal regression to the real object in physical and virtual worlds. Virtualreality : the journal of the Virtual Reality Society, 19(1), (21-31). doi:10.1007/s10055-014-0257-x. ISSN 1359-4338

© 2014, Springer-Verlag London. In this paper, we investigate a new approach to comparing physical and virtual size and depth percepts that captures the involuntary responses of participants to different stimuli in their field of view, rather than re... Read More

Using visualization for visualization : an ecological interface design approach to inputting data (2013)
Journal Article
Wright, H., Mathers, C., & Walton, J. P. R. B. (2013). Using visualization for visualization : an ecological interface design approach to inputting data. Computers and Graphics, 37(3), (202-213). doi:10.1016/j.cag.2013.01.013. ISSN 0097-8493

Visualization is experiencing growing use by a diverse community, with continuing improvements in the availability and usability of systems. In spite of these developments the problem of how first to get the data in has received scant attention: the... Read More

Steering and visualization: Enabling technologies for computational science (2008)
Journal Article
Wright, H., Crompton, R. H., Kharche, S., & Wenisch, P. (2010). Steering and visualization: Enabling technologies for computational science. Future generations computer systems : FGCS, 26(3), (506-513). doi:10.1016/j.future.2008.06.015. ISSN 0167-739X

Computational steering is an investigative paradigm whereby the parameters of a running program can be altered according to what is seen in the currently visualized results of the simulation. For certain problems, interactive computation brings speci... Read More

Gyro-scope: An individual-based computer model to forecast gyrodactylid infections on fish hosts (2007)
Journal Article
Wright, H., Cable, J., Potter, R., & van Oosterhout, C. (2008). Gyro-scope: An individual-based computer model to forecast gyrodactylid infections on fish hosts. International journal for parasitology, 38(5), 541-548. doi:10.1016/j.ijpara.2007.09.016

Individual-based computer models (IBM) feature prominently in current theoretical ecology but have only been applied in a small number of parasitological studies. Here we designed an IBM to simulate the infection dynamics of gyrodactylid parasites an... Read More

Steering via the image in local, distributed and collaborative settings (2007)
Journal Article
Wright, H., & Wood, J. D. (2008). Steering via the image in local, distributed and collaborative settings. Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, 20(3), (265-276). doi:10.1002/cpe.1197. ISSN 1532-0626

Computational steering is a valuable mechanism for scientific investigation in which the parameters of a running program can be altered and the results visualized immediately. In a previous paper we put forward an architecture for computational steer... Read More

SuperVise: Using grid tools to simplify visualization (2004)
Conference Proceeding
Osborne, J., & Wright, H. (2004). SuperVise: Using grid tools to simplify visualization. In R. Wyrzykowski, J. Dongarra, M. Paprzycki, & J. Wasniewski (Eds.), Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics; Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 856-863. doi:10.1007/978-3-540-24669-5_111

The visualization process is complicated enough for visualization experts but more so for domain specialists. Problems include managing the transfer of large datasets and choosing appropriate techniques. When we consider performing these tasks in a m... Read More

Enabling multipurpose image interaction in modular visualization environments
Presentation / Conference
Wright, H., & Chatzinikos, F. Enabling multipurpose image interaction in modular visualization environments. Paper presented at Visualization and Data Analysis 2003

Recent improvements in processor and graphics power mean researchers can now interact with their running simulation at the same time as they view the results. This so-called 'computational steering' brings greater insight to the investigation process... Read More
