Visualizing Research@Tufts Awards 2011 Program Goals
- To showcase Tufts research projects
- To enable opportunities for collaboration
- To promote the use of visualization as a research tool at Tufts University.
Definition of Visualization
Visualization is an important research tool that is not reserved for the hard- sciences. Visualization has wide applications and has been used to help understand data, processes, structures, and concepts in fields ranging from engineering to humanities and from health sciences to social sciences. For visualization examples, please visit http://sites.tufts.edu/vrta.
This competition will accept submissions from Tufts faculty whose appointment includes research activities and students involved in these activities. Materials can be submitted in 3 different categories: photography, illustrations and non-interactive media. Submitted materials must:
- be copyright compliant
- be from a research project whose principal investigator is a Tufts University faculty member
- use visualization to express the message included in the data/information they are visualizing
- not be a work of art
Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire if your material qualifies for the competition.
A panel of seven judges selected from across the university will evaluate the submissions based on creativity, ability to communicate the research context effectively and clearly, and visual impact. Three prizes will be awarded for each category – 1st prize, $100; 2nd prize, $50; 3rd prize, $25. The winners will be announced on April 14 with an awards event being held on April 28. All the submissions will be showcased at the Tufts Center for Scientific Visualization from May 1 – 15th.
