The Tufts Research Visualization Awards program is now accepting entries for 2014 in the following categories:

  • Photography and Illustration
  • Video and Animation
  • Software

Interested applicants may fill out an entry form following the submission guidelines and submit it along with their visualization by February 7, 2014.

Detailed program information can be found at http://sites.tufts.edu/trva.

If you are planning to submit a software entry, please notify us of your intent by January 1, 2014 via email at vis-awards@tufts.edu so that we may allow enough time to provide jury members with access to the software.

TTS has been actively promoting scientific visualization as a research tool at Tufts since it collaborated with the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering to create the NSF-funded Tufts Center for Scientific Visualization in 2008. To further this effort, TTS launched in 2010 the first Visualizing Research@Tufts Awards program with the goal of promoting visualization as a research tool for all disciplines, showcasing Tufts research projects, and providing opportunities for research collaboration. The program is based on the NSF’s International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge.

Each spring Tufts faculty and students actively participating in Tufts research projects are invited to submit materials in three different categories: photography, illustrations and software. The entries are evaluated by a panel of seven judges who are selected from across the university.

If you have questions about whether your entry qualifies, please send an email to vis-awards@tufts.edu.
