The long-term research goal of the Brown University Graphics Group is to develop human-centered, powerful, and interactive 3D graphics tools for modeling, scientific visualization, telecollaboration, and interactive illustrations.
Driving applications include the need for rapid prototyping tools for 3D modeling, the need for more sophisticated scientific visualization tools that can present concepts, techniques, and algorithms as well as data, and the need of geographically-separated groups to more effectively work in a shared visual, spatial, and auditory environment.
The Visualization Research Group is part of the Brown University Graphics Lab. An interdisciplinary team of people from different departments at Brown develop robust and effective computer science and visualization tools and techniques for solving a range of problems and phenomena from science as well as the arts and humanities. Collaborative work with colleagues in these areas guides the research and provides a mechanism for evaluating the usefulness and robustness of results.
