There is often a great deal of discussion these days about multi-disciplinary research and the value of exchanging ideas and methods across traditional discipline boundaries. Indeed, it could be justifiably argued that many of the advances in science and engineering take place because the ideas, methods and the tools of thought from one discipline become re-applied in others. Sadly, it is also the case that many subject areas develop specialised vocabularies and concepts and indeed may also approach more general problems in fairly narrow subject-specific ways. As a result barriers develop between disciplines that prevent the free flow of ideas and the collaborations that could often bring success. This workshop is intended to break down such barriers. This volume contains papers written by researchers in the many varied disciplines that are actively investigating visual representations and interpretations.
