This book contains the proceedings of the International Workshop on Volume Graphics 200 1 (VG’O I) which took place on June 21 and June 22 at Stony Brook, New York. This year’s event was the second in the series, following a successful premiere in Swansea, Wales, in March 1999, and was co-sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Visualization and Graphics (TC-VG) as well as EUROGRAPHICS. The Volume Graphics Workshop is held bi-annually and has been created to provide a forum for the exploration and advancement of volume-based techniques, beyond the scope of just volume visualization. It brings together researchers and practitioners both from academia and industry, from many parts of the world. Volume graphics is in the process of evolving into a general graphics technology, and the papers included in these proceedings are testimonial to the wide spectrum of unique applications and solu tions that volumetric representations are able to offer.
