VisChallenge Banner

First Annual Visualization Challenge 2008

The RENCI at ECU Center for Coastal Systems Informatics and Modeling (C-SIM) is pleased to announce a student Visualization Challenge! The Challenge is open to creative visualization as well as scientific and technological topics, the prime requirement being use of the viswall itself as a medium.

The Process

  1. Students submit an entry form, including a topic and particular software needs. I've asked people to describe their project and any special needs (e.g., software) on the entry form. If we have 10-20 students participating from across campus, it'll be a success. Students will be contacted and confirmed participants after receiving and reviewing entries.
  2. Ample access and support on the viswall will be provided in the intervening 10 weeks.
  3. In April we will have an informal presentation and juding, modeled after "American Idol", tentatively Monday, April 21).
  4. Presentation by the finalists during RENCI's Open House (tentatively Thursday, April 24).

The contest has garnered support for prizes from RENCI, the Center for Hazards Research, the Coastal-Maritime Council, Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Scienecs, and Center for GIScience (Apple iPODs, download certificates, etc.)
