Congratulations to our former SCI Institute and SoC Colleague Claudio Silva, now at New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, who was awarded the 2014 IEEE Visualization Technical Achievement Award at Vis 2014 in Paris. The award is in recognition of seminal advances in geometric computing for visualization and for contributions to the development of the VisTrails data exploration system.
See: Phys.Org "NYU professor wins premier award in the data visualization field."
SCI Alumni Gordon Kindlmann, now an assistant professor at the University of Chicago, and Carlos Scheidegger, now an assistant professor at the University of Arizona, were also given a Best Paper Honorable Mention Award at the InfoVis Conference. Congratulations guys!
G. Kindlmann and C. Scheidegger.
