RENCI provides funding and resources for Duke faculty


RENCI at Duke has posted a CFP looking for Duke faculty interested in developing visualizations. More details in the announcement below:

RENCI at Duke Faculty Engagement Program in Applied Scientific and Information Visualization

This program provides faculty members and researchers of all domains and disciplines at Duke University the opportunity to address pressing research issues that stand to benefit from the addition of advanced scientific or information visualization expertise.

In addition to $8-12,000 in funding, awardees will have access to RENCI engagement center resources and staff including use of the RENCI engagement facilities in the Telecom Building on the Duke campus.

The goal of the program is twofold: 1) to expand the use of advanced visualization tools, expertise, and technologies by members of the Duke faculty towards advancing their work to new levels of academic achievement, and 2) to set the stage for future externally funded proposals and awards. Successful applicants will be expected to generate concrete deliverables such as new methods, models, applications, or prototypes that can be used as the basis to develop larger efforts supported with extramural funding.
