CAVE2, is a scientific instrument that enables researchers to visualize data in a fully immersive 3D stereoscopic environment; it serves as the lense of a “telescope” or “microscope,” enabling them to see their e-science datasets that reside in cyberspace. Its development is being funded by the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program, award # CNS-0959053, for the period May 1, 2010 – April 30, 2013.
Seamlessly-tiled LCD flat-screen displays stretching floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Electronic Visualization Laboratory “Cyber-Commons” has served as a digitally-enhanced way to display, manipulate and exchange information and images since its opening in 2009. On November 11, EVL demonstrates Cyber-Commons’ latest enhancement — three-dimensional imagery, displayed along with traditional 2-D images.

SAGE BIRDS OF A FEATHER: Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment for Global Collaboration.
The SC11 SAGE BOF was the third annual meeting of the worldwide SAGE user community. It provided an opportunity for both current users as well as potential users to meet, discuss current and future development efforts, and share examples of community-developed use cases and applications. SAGE is a three-year project funded by the National Science Foundation to create persistent visualization and collaboration services for global cyberinfrastructure, and is currently deployed at 78 major centers and institutions worldwide.
