    The Los Angeles Chapter of the American Society For Information Science
    & Technology invites you to a breathtaking demonstration of the ...
                             UCLA Visualization Portal

    This new $2 million facility is an immersive virtual reality theater
    that supports researchers and faculty in their use of visualization,
    multimedia, high-performance computing, and networking technologies. It
    is currently the only academic facility of its kind in the West. The
    Portal has a 160x40-degree spherical screen that allows 3-D objects and
    virtual environments to be viewed with stereographics, localized and
    surround sound, tracking, and interactive object manipulation.

    During this demo you will be virtually transported back in time to
    a 3-D recreation of an ancient city, and forward in time to an
    architect's vision of a 21st century building. You will see how stunning
    discoveries in medicine and science have come to fruition using the
    Portal's cutting edge capabilities. For more information about the
    Portal, see http://www.oac.ucla.edu/portal/default.htm
