RENCI Challenge

Graduate and undergraduate students are challenged to use their imagination and talent in the RENCI @ ECU Visualization Challenge. Do you have a scientific research project, class project or idea that uses visual representations to tell the story? Do you use computer graphics that you would like to see in a large display? Want to see your work on the VisWall?

The VisChallenge is an opportunity for students to advance and showcase their visual insights and creativity and to use ECU’s 21×6-foot visualization wall (“VisWall”), a high-resolution, immersive display in Brewster C-202.  All students interested in scientific, creative, and educational visualization are encouraged to participate. Last year’s entries ranged from 3D archeological ship reconstruction to landslide assessments 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 an incentive stipend.

Faculty judges will evaluate the entries.  The first place entry will be recognized during the 2014 Research and Creative Achievement Week.
