      Hi all,

      please find below a call for submissions to the first ALIFE Science Visualization Competition. I hope it will be of interest for some people in this group :)

      Looking forward to your submissions!




      *** SCIENCE VISUALIZATION COMPETITION at the ALIFE 2014 conference

      *** July 31 August 2, 2014 – Javits Center – New York, USA

      *** http://blogs.cornell.edu/alife14nyc/science-visualization-competition-print-media/


      We invite submissions to the Science Visualization Competition at the ALIFE 2014 conference. Research in Artificial Life covers a wide range of different topics from computer models of artificial organisms and robotic systems to the creation of synthetic DNA. The goal of the ALIFE Science Visualization Competition is to make these concepts accessible to a broader audience while also encouraging the cross-pollination of ideas between different ALife subfields. The competition will be divided into two main categories: visual print (e.g. illustrations, photographs) and visual media (e.g. videos, demos), with awards in each category. Selected work will be showcased during the conference to be held in New York City, New York, USA.


      Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of artificial life researchers, non-researchers and artists. Each submission will be judged on its creativity, originality, visual impact, relevance, and ability to effectively communicate a scientific concept through visualization. Submissions will be placed into two groups: print media including illustrations and photographs, and new media works including video art and demonstrations. Which group must be specified by the participant during submission. All work must be original.


      Accepted presenters can either bring a poster of their work (visual print category) or show their work on their own laptop (visual media). The selected work will be displayed in a showcase room at the conference venue from July 31st – August 2nd. Maximum size for posters displayed should be 36 in x 48 in. The winners of the visualization challenge will be determined through voting of the conference attendees and will be announced at the closing ceremony on August 2nd, 2014.
