Research Experience for Undergrads (REU) in Collaborative Data Visualization Applications at Clemson University
June 2 – July 25, 2014

The program identifies research collaborators with visualization needs and assigns each student to a REU team. Each REU Team consists of a research/science collaborator, a visualization mentor and a visualization REU student. This arrangement fosters collaboration among team members, an appreciation of the visualization process and an understanding of the role visualization plays in discovery and analysis. Research areas of this site include: computer science, genetics and biochemistry, geophysics, sociology, molecular modeling and simulation, inorganic chemistry, social media, parks recreation tourism management, biological sciences and digital humanities. Students will participate in activities as a member of their REU Team, their Research Lab, and their REU cohort thereby creating a rich, multidisciplinary research experience that will include enrichment lectures, excursions and social events.

Application review will begin in March.  Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.
