Course: Interdisciplinary Modeling and Visualization

Term: Fall 2010
Course Number: CS 2620
Time: Tuesday & Thursday 4:00 – 5:15 PM
Location: SENSQ 5313
Credits: 3.0
Instructor: Liz Marai (marai AT

Description: Open to CS students and to students from other disciplines (biology, geology, history, physics, etc.) who are interested in collaborating with computer scientists.

Learn how to do interdisciplinary visualization research, from soup to nuts, in one semester. Or, why not, how to use visualization to analyze your own data!

This class discusses computer graphics, modeling and visualization techniques used to solve scientific problems. In the second half of the class, students embark on a research project. Working in small groups, students identify scientific problems, propose solutions involving computational modeling and visualization, design and implement the solutions, apply them to the problems, evaluate their success, and report on results. Examples might include interactive software systems, quantitative analysis tools, or new applications of existing visualization methods.
