Dr. Donald House and Dr. Joshua Levine recently returned from a two week trip to China and Hong Kong, Nov. 16 through Nov. 30, 2013. Besides attending the SIGGRAPH Asia Conference in Hong Kong, they were able to make presentations at five universities promoting research and academic programs in the School of Computing at Clemson. Visits included Hong Kong University, and City University in Hong Kong. Traveling to Mainland China after SIGGRAPH Asia, they visited Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, Shandong University in Jilin, and Tsinghua University Beijing. Levine's talk, "Discretization Techniques for Simulation Domains," featured his work in optimizing tetrahedral meshes for use in finite element simulations involving interfaces among multiple materials. House's talk, "Digital Production Arts @ Clemson University," described the DPA MFA program at Clemson, and was accompanied by many video clips illustrating the courses and studio experiences in the program. House's talk also began with an overview of the School of Computing, its graduate degrees, and the research focus areas of the three divisions of the School. The trip began a process of forming relationships with all five universities, with the hope that in the future more formal connections may be made to facilitate student and faculty exchanges, and cooperative graduate programs.
