Research & Creative Achievement Week
RENCI @ ECU presents the 3rd Annual Visualization Challenge
From cave drawings to Egyptian hieroglyphics, Greek geometry to Ptolemy's maps, and DaVinci's technical Renaissance drawings, humans have employed visualization through history to understand and shape our world. Computer graphics have more recently revolutionized scientific investigation and artistic expression.
The VisChallenge is an opportunity for students to advance and showcase their visual insights and creativity and to use ECU's 21x6-foot visualization wall ("VisWall"), a high-resolution, immersive dis play in Brewster C-202.
All students interested in scientific, creative, and educational visualization are encouraged to participate. Last year’s entries ranged from 3D archeo logical ship reconstruction to vegetation mapping to genetic disease research using fruit flies.
Training and technical assistance using the VisWall is provided by RENCI faculty and staff. Presentations are approximately 10 minutes open questions from the audience. Student participants will also receive a $100 incentive stipend.
Faculty judges will evaluate the entries. The first place entry will be recognized during the 2010 Research and Creative Achievement Week.
Entry form due January 20, 2010 available at http://www.ecu.edu/renci/
