The Centre for Advanced Studies in Visualization, Simulation and Modelling (VSIM) is the result of a $28M Canadian Foundation for Innovation proposal put forward by a group consisting of industry and government partners together with researchers at Carleton University. The group shares a common vision of modeling and simulation as a key enabling technology. The goal is to enable industry, government and academia to jointly participate in interdisciplinary modeling and simulation research.
The goal of the Copenhagen-based Centre for Advanced Visualization and Interaction (CAVI) is to become one of the leaders within next generation computing environments where information and communication technology is everywhere, for everyone, at all times. The centre develops new concepts and technology for pervasive computing based on a broad spectrum of media and equipment.
The Graphics and Visualization Center at Brown University, founded in 1991, is one of 24 National Science Foundation Science and Technology Centers created to pursue foundational interdisciplinary research. The primary goals of the Center are to build a stronger scientific foundation for computer graphics and scientific visualization and to help create the basic framework for future interactive graphical environments.
The Graphics, Visualization and Usability (GVU) Center is a multidisciplinary research facility affiliated with the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. The Center addresses the host of issues pertaining to the interaction between humans and computers. These issues include finding ways to make that interaction more intuitive and user-friendly as well as researching computer-based solutions to everyday challenges - in effect, developing computers that extend people's capacity to manage their daily lives.
The Integrated Media Systems Center (IMSC) was established in 1996 through a competitive process resulting in an 11-year, US $30 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The only NSF center of excellence in multimedia and the Internet, IMSC carries out a pioneering, cross-disciplinary program of research, education, outreach, industry collaboration and technology transfer.
MIT's Media Laboratory provides a unique environment for exploring basic research and applications at the intersection of computation and the arts.
VR Media Lab at Aalborg University is one of Europe's largest virtual reality (VR) installations with a unique configuration of visualization facilities. The overall object of VR Media Lab is to create a forum for the research and educational environments of Aalborg University as well as functioning as a partner and expert centre for the industry focusing on development projects using VR.
