Electronic Imaging & Signal Processing

Visualization Challenge will reward science communication in images

SPIE Newsroom
27 July 2010

Some of science's most powerful statements are not made in words. From the diagrams of DaVinci to Rosalind Franklin's X-rays, visualization of research has a long and literally illustrious history. To illustrate is to enlighten.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the journal Science created the International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge to celebrate that grand tradition--and to encourage its continued growth. The spirit of the competition is for communicating science, engineering and technology for education and journalistic purposes.

Deadline for entries in 15 September 2010. For more information and entry forms visit the International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge website.

More than Pretty Pictures -- Felice Frankel speaks at the Women in Optics Presentation and Reception on Monday, 2 August 2010, 5:00 to 6:30 pm. Open to all conference attendees. Frankel is founder of the Image and Meaning conferences whose purpose is to develop new approaches to promote the public understanding of science through visual expression.
