CSCI2370: Interdisciplinary Scientific Visualization (fall 2020)

Time: Tue/Thu 10:30-11:50AM
Location:, maybe CIT 165

Professor: David H. Laidlaw (CIT 521, david_laidlaw at,
TA: Fumeng Yang (CIT 509, fumeng_yang at

Description: Learn how to do interdisciplinary scientific visualization research, from soup to nuts, in one semester. Projects will involve the solution of scientific problems using computer graphics, modeling, and visualization. Working in small groups, students will identify scientific problems, propose solutions involving computational modeling and visualization, evaluate the proposals, design and implement the solutions, apply them to the problems, evaluate their success, and report on results. Examples might include interactive software systems, immersive virtual reality applications, quantitative analysis tools, or new applications of existing visualizations methods.

Suggested prerequisites: programming experience, some graphics experience, and problem ideas.

Permission of the instructor required.
