EVL Student Recognized in 2014 UIC Image of Research Competition
Participants: Arthur Nishimoto
This year, UIC Computer Science PhD student and Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) research assistant Arthur Nishimoto received an Honorable Mention in the campus’ 2014 Image of Research competition. Nishimoto’s work, “Getting in Touch with the Data,” explores a user interface design that enables users to easily access a menu anywhere on a tiled display wall and open a thumbnail browser in order to select files for display.
Winning entries are to be displayed in the lobby of the Daley Library from November 6 through Jan. 31. After the Daley Library exhibit, winning entries will be displayed at the Library of Health Sciences and on banners around campus.
It should be noted that when the judges reviewed all the Image of Research submissions this past summer, they used EVL’s largest tiled display system, the CAVE2 hybrid reality environment, to display all the entries at once in high resolution for easy comparison and grouping.
Information on the 2014 awards as well as a list of all exhibition winners and finalists from the competition’s inception.
